    They will most likely fall in line sooner or later.

    Relevant: Glenn Greenwald predicted that the left would fall in line with the cuts sooner or later. https://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/11/07-7

    The United States is not broke and doesn't have to cut anyone's benefits. The problem is that we gave all the money to the rich, and they stuck it in offshore bank accounts.

    It depends on the whole package, but I am not entirely opposed to the cuts.

    No ... he is trying to pacify the right wing nuts and that is wrong. I support about 72% of his decisions/polices ... not this one!

    Although, I am left leaning I am ala carte on issues and not a party loyalist.

    Democrats might. Liberals and progressives won't.

    Because those on SS get paid more than those working now........

    That will not last...........people will get pissed .

    Those around me (on SS) pay $500 month rent. I can only pay $190 month working 3/4 time...........
    Same with all those working jobs today.

    I don't think it's the right way to cut social security, and I don't think it cuts enough in the long term, but I do agree with the idea of cutting social security.

    Do you have any evidence of this? Any at all? Or is your statement just as it seems--empty, meaningless political rhetoric

    Why is making a minor adjustment to future increases in SS payments an attempt by Obama to "pacify the right wing nuts?" Maybe Obama has gotten some sense and realizes that changes to entitlements have to be made and is no longer kissing the feet of the left wing nuts who oppose any changes to the welfare state. Ever consider that?
