    as is the case with obama....yet another lie

    because the truth is:

    and some democrats support the idea, but leave it to the liar in chief to sling mud and really have the "change" and end partisan bickering....

    We need a uniter, not a divider.

    Obama said that fuixing SS was a "layup", and that fixing Medicare was the toughie. A few tweaks to SS & Medicare to ensure their solvency should be supported. To "do nothing" means that the entitlements will be cut by about 25% in the coming years. So the greedy geezers need to STFU and let the fixes happen.

    Odd that, since Republicans have alternately suggested ending SS or throwing the money into the stock market.

    Have Democrats "been able to seize on the issue" outside of MSNBC?

    As an independent voter, I'm not terribly happy with Republicans, and unless Democrats are able to do more than use this kind of bullshit to scare me, I'm not terribly happy with them either. Both parties had better get their shit together with a comprehensive plan to dramatically decrease government spending..... Period.

    Maybe we could just throw you in stocks and call it good.
