Hi, I'm President Obama .... cough ahhaa ummmph liberal ... While I'm presenting my jobs plan I'd like to take the opportunity to shove it up elderly Americans rumps. Lets cut costs on medicare ... while we near a close to trillion dollar defense budget. As a liberal you need to know I value War more then the health of Americans ... this is what makes America great ... all of us sharing sacrifice together. These cuts are necessary as I plan to pursue three more GDP export agreements that will cause lost government revenue. Also I'm thinking of pursing interests in Syria ... with our good friends the French. OK me and the old lady are off on separate flights to Vegas. The dog will follow on a separate flight later ... Good night America.
This is the irrelevancy of voting for a Democratic President.
Obama Pushes Medicare Cuts In Jobs Speech
In his jobs speech before Congress Thursday night, President Barack Obama appeared to call on congressional Democrats to cut Medicare, a politically toxic proposal that undercuts a previous Democratic campaign strategy.
Obama pushed to cut Medicare during the debate over raising the federal debt ceiling, urging lawmakers from both parties to accept a "grand bargain" that involved cutting both Social Security and Medicare. Obama's move upset congressional Democrats, who saw a proposal from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to radically cut Medicare as an attack ad opening going into the Nov. 2012 elections. House Republicans voted for the Ryan proposal en masse, just months after hordes of GOP freshmen were swept into office amid advertisements vowing to protect the hugely popular entitlement program.
