There is no way Republicans should accept anymore “words” from Obama, force him to put in writing what he wants, because he will twist the knife in your back and pull it out and let the Democrats in Congress stab you again. If you think for one moment that anything this President promises with his mouth can be trusted, just see how everything he says comes with an expiration date I Know And Everyone Knows That Something Has To Change With Social Security, But Obama Cannot Be Trusted To Do The Right Thing
President Barack Obama and lawmakers are considering cutting Social Security and increasing revenue by changing the way the government measures inflation.
Four senior congressional aides said lawmakers are discussing using an alternative yardstick to gauge inflation, known as the â€œchained consumer price index,â€ to determine annual cost-of-living adjustments for millions of Americans.
The idea may rile both Democrats and Republicans, because it could mean paring Social Security by $112 billion over 10 years, raising taxes by $60 billion and cutting pension and veteransâ€™ disability payments by $24 billion, according to estimates by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation.
Advocates say the change is needed because the governmentâ€™s current measure of inflation overstates how quickly prices rise.
One thing I do know is that a Veteran should never be looked at for savings, there is NPR, Planned Parenthood and taxing Union dues as well as taxing wealth, you know like College’s billions or Immelt of GE’s billions, instead of income taxes, that should be some of the places to look at and I can come up with many more places.
