Obama under fire for backtracking on trims to Social Security

President Obama is under fire from Republicans for backtracking on proposed Social Security and other benefit cuts in his upcoming budget proposal.

The White House confirmed Thursday that the president’s forthcoming budget blueprint would no longer contain what had been a central component of his long-term debt-reduction strategy. In years past, Obama had offered to trim cost-of-living increases in Social Security and other benefit programs – known as chained CPI. Not anymore.

“This reaffirms what has become all too apparent: the president has no interest in doing anything, even modest, to address our looming debt crisis,” House Speaker John Boehner’s spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement.

He added: “With three years left in office, it seems the president is already throwing in the towel.”

    The audacity of audacity. Why on earth would BO #1 abide by a previous agreement to trim chained CPI, and #2 compromise with republicans? He is, after all, BO. He answers to nobody except Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and don’t forget Frank Marchall Davis. They created him, molded him, mentored him, raised money for him, and built the house of mirrors to trick the American voter.

    RINO Boehner has got to go. Along with McConnell, Cantor, and all the other RINOS. Vote ’em out.

    What do they mean, “not doing anything, even modest to address our looming debt crisis?” Didn’t the democrats and republicans all get together to cut the COLA for retired and injured veterans? It looks like the COLA for veterans can be cut, but not the Social Security COLA.

    A Democrat refusing to compromise with Republicans?!?! Outrageous! Oh, the horror! Oh the inhumanity!
