Obama announces Social Security Cuts in Deficit Reduction Deal

Post by Guest on Wed Jul 06, 2011 11:56 pm

President Barack Obama is raising the stakes in the ongoing talks to raise the debt ceiling and lower the deficit — proposing $4 trillion in cuts over the next decade, including reductions to Social Security, The Washington Post is reporting.

Obama has already indicated he would support cuts to the "delivery-side" of Medicare and Medicaid as long as Republicans agree to new revenues, but including Social Security in the deal will be tough for many Democrats to stomach.

Hey I got it Obama!! Why not tax the unemployed and call it a unemployment tax. If your unemployed make us pay taxes..Then you can offset that by lowering the tax rate for the rich! Boy , you are a sure winner from both sides...

President Obama is pressing congressional leaders to consider a far-reaching debt-reduction plan that would force Democrats to accept major changes to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for Republican support for fresh tax revenue.

At a meeting with top House and Senate leaders set for Thursday morning, Obama plans to argue that a rare consensus has emerged about the size and scope of the nation’s budget problems and that policymakers should seize the moment to take dramatic action.

As part of his pitch, Obama is proposing significant reductions in Medicare spending and for the first time is offering to tackle the rising cost of Social Security, according to people in both parties with knowledge of the proposal. The move marks a major shift for the White House and could present a direct challenge to Democratic lawmakers who have vowed to protect health and retirement benefits from the assault on government spending.

Keith Ellison was on Morning Joe discussing this and claims it's more of a headline than fact. Talked about the cuts to medicare and it's more of looking into the cost saving aspects of Plan B for prescriptions. He did not discuss Social Security.

Reagan beat him to that idea. UC wasn't taxed until the 80s. But this really sucks too if it's true.

If he goes through with the cuts, he is going to lose even the backing of the Dems in the Senate. They are not happy about this at all - it will be the end of their political careers.

They have stolen my mid-life years by creating the mess the economy is in, robbing me of my retirement savings, no job so I'm not paying into Social Security and now I will not have anything better to look forward to. I won't even be able to think of retiring if I ever find a job again.
