    Re: The results are in on social security

    unfunded obligations, social security ALONE, two thousand ten ALONE, grew, increased and expanded by a terrible ONE POINT FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS

    U.S. funding for future promises lags by trillions - USATODAY.com

    that must be one enormous lockbox

    LOL!

    no wonder president barack the slasher hussein HIMSELF came out for CUTS

    In debt talks, Obama offers Social Security cuts - The Washington Post

    as a matter of fact, the solvency of social security is so safe, the slasher suggests that without raising our debt ceiling he can't even guarantee checks NEXT MONTH

    Obama says he cannot guarantee Social Security checks will go out on August 3 - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    he lost the key?

    Re: The results are in on social security

    "President Obama said doing nothing about the deficit was not an option, but he said we have to fix the problem with a scalpel, not a machete. For every $1 in tax hikes, the president's plan would cut $2 in spending. The cuts would come from domestic programs, the military, Medicare and Medicaid. He would allow the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich to expire, and revamp the tax code to lower rates and eliminate loopholes."

    $2 in spending cuts for every $1 dollar of tax increases. We haven't seen that kind of deficit reduction proposed since the Clinton Administration, which coincidently was the last time we had a balanced budget.

    I think that this part could be made to look better..."$2 in spending cuts for every $1 dollar of tax increases. "


    $1 in spending cuts for every $2 dollar of tax increases. There that's better now.

    From your own link:

    "Democratic aides said ahead of the vote that the Democratic caucus would not support the plan because it has been supplanted by the deficit-reduction plan Obama outlined at a speech at George Washington University in April."

    I would go for that but unfortunately we have a pragmatic moderate as president and a very conservative congress.

    No one has come up with a bigger deficit reduction plan, and there is little chance they will now as the Rebumlicans have given up on ambitious deficit reduction in order to save their constituents (the rich) from tax increases.

    I donít know, I think we could get a few conservative aboard with cutting military bases in Europe and letting them protect themselves.

    LOL!

    President Obama drew fire Sunday from congressional Republicans and independent budget experts for his reluctance to advance a plan that would tackle the nation's biggest budget problems in the spending blueprint he will submit to Congress on Monday.

    In the first statement of his budget priorities since Republicans regained control of the House, Obama will avoid politically dangerous recommendations to wipe out cherished tax breaks and to restrain safety-net programs for the elderly, put forward last year by his own bipartisan fiscal commission as a strategy for reining in a soaring national debt.

    White House budget director Jacob J. Lew has told advocates of reform that the White House thinks any significant plan offered by the president would simply become a target for partisan attack. Key Democrats, including Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (N.D.), said they accept that rationale. Republicans argued that Obama was abdicating a responsibility to chart a path to solvency.
