“U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-NARAL) was among a group of more than 110 lawmakers who are urging President Barack Obama not to include a proposal to trim Social Security benefits in his 2015 budget proposal.”
What a farce! Obama will no more cut Social Security than he will abolish abortion. This is just more inane political theatre to bamboozle the rubes.
After cutting a half a trillion dollars from Medicare in order to fund Obamacare, does anyone really believe Obama will further inflame the geezers by cutting their S.S.? Hell no! He may have had his last election but he would rather have his eyes gouged out with hot pokers than work with the GOP to achieve any kind of fiscal sanity.
Obama can be as leftwing now as he wants and Bustos knows this, which is why this is just more lame Theatre of The Political Absurd performed to impress the folks at home that Bustos is “fighting” for them in a fight that Obama has no intent in waging.
