    Obama says he cannot guarantee Social Security checks will go out on August 3

    President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

    "I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it," Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.

    Well it's certainly great to not hold commitments we made to our own people instead of...you know, passing a budget. Superb. Thanks partisan politics, I didn't want a working government anyway.

    LOL.

    Social Security is in a Lockbox, it's paid for, how can there not be money? Oh wait... there is not SS fund? It's all a lie?

    Disgusting is the President threatening old folks to get his way.

    Yeah. I made a conscious decision last night to just let it go. If it doesn't matter to Congress, I can't let it bother me.

    Translation:

    I can't condemn Obama for threatening old people, so I'll just ignore it.

    Kinda like the Republicans threaten the whole of us to preserve tax loopholes like the Capital Gains tax? Yup, peas in a pod y'all are. Good job not doing anything productive and doing everything y'all can to bring down the Republic. Great.

    It's not a threat, it's the truth. SS isn't in a lockbox, it has been dumped into the general fund for decades in order to mask out-of-control "defense" spending. Right now, some "contractor" in Iraq is using SS money to pay for a new 'Beamer.

    So, there is no guarantee that SS checks will go out. Those who are already receiving checks will most likely get them, those who are applying for new benefits probably won't.

    That's not what's going on, but you're enamored by big government, so I guess you can't see that.

    Defense Spending is 18% of the Budget, Entitlements are 60%. Keep up the lies man, keep up the lies.

    That's exactly what's going on, but your blinded by partisan politics, so I guess you can't see that. The Republicans haven't spent down, hell before Obama Bush was one of the biggest spenders. But it's all for their buddies at the top and **** the rest of us. That's why your ilk will go after our social programs designed for our people before you go after forever war which has wasted over a trillion dollars.

    And the ironic thing is this whole "fear" montra you drag up because the Republicans used it well to sell us all sorts of increased government because the big bad terrorist was gonna get us. FEAR! HA. Peas in a pod buddy, peas in a pod.
