The answer could have serious ramifications regarding the kind of support many Americans receive from their government during a historic recession.

But ... but ... but ... we aren't IN a recession. Baraq's regime says so.

Al-Qaida is alive and GM is dead. Or something like that.

Why, yes, of course, the Democrats are really struggling with their strategy to cut benefits.
“Do we tell the press to say, ‘Blame the Republicans’, or, ‘The Republicans want to starve people’?” Real battle in the Democrat party over that.

"With the accord reached last night failing to address these programs, Republicans have said they’ll threaten to deny a debt ceiling increase in February —"

Stopped reading at that point.

This is an article written by someone who thinks that Obama is a truthful person who bargains in good faith. Obama said that he was open to entitlement cuts -- therefore he must be open to entitlement cuts.

No.

Government will grow in size. Spending will increase. There will be nothing like entitlement reform. The goal is to destroy the country, and they are dead serious about that. Only fools accept their lies and think that Democrats mean well.

Not one time in any of these discussions does anyone ever mention the vast amount of money that is wasted or stolen from all these government programs. Medicaid and Medicare fraud alone runs into the billions. This is like living in Wonderland where nothing is as it should be.

This would be a win-win-win-win for the Dems IMHO.
Baby Boomers who have been paying their FICA all these
years are going to go absolutely ape if anyone tries to change the program just as they are about to reap the benefits.

The payroll tax will eventually be extended to very high levels of income. Perhaps every last cent. There is simply no political will to address the problem in any other way.

At the very least Medicare should go to 67 to equal Social Security. It is kinda stupid to have them split. I know people are getting 1400 dollars social security which is not a heck of a lot of money when medicare is taken out and taxes. I really don’t know what besides a smaller COLA that they can do....make it 1000 as the max? It eventually becomes, “why bother to get it even though you put into it your whole life?” The 401K type accounts that people want instead of Social Security Checks would be ok unless you retired in 2008. However the stock market has recovered beautifully lately.

Unlike the Republicans...the Democrats ALWAYS circle their wagons and vote together. It is the principal source of their power.

I feel superbly confident that, whatever they do, they will end up screwing my children and me even more than they already have.
