    Obama messed up with trying to cut social security. SS doesn’t add 1 thing to the debt. If the econnomic powers in the US would pay the taxes they OWE there wouldn’t be much of a debt.
    when the rest of us don’t pay what we OWE, we could go to jail, when the economic powers (like GE) here don’t pay what they owe, NO ONE says anything.
    I guess everyone is OK with that?

    He put it in there so Republicans could bitch about their own proposal (again).

    Do you “conservatives” really think Obama put the SS cuts in there because he was stupid?

    It’s a brilliant and calculated political move. He puts up a Democratic sacred cow on the bargaining table with the full knowledge that BOTH parties will object to it as unreasonable.

    What he walks away with is further reassurance that it is indeed a sacred cow while demonstrating to voters (and political donors) that Republicans stand for nothing except the opposite of what he is doing.

    It’s called negotiating. Where you give a little to get a little. Obama is calling the Republicans on how they want to cut SS but now that they have an opportunity, they are walking away.
    And how many ‘clean’ bills do you think get through Congress without some rider attached that has nothing to do with the subject of the bill?

    Brilliant. On the other hand, maybe he always gets what he wants.

    How about all of Obama’s cronies he put in the Cabinet, etc., who didn’t pay their taxes? It seems to me that Democrats are the ones who don’t pay their taxes.

    Honestly, that’s expecting a lot of intelligence from both the Republiclans and voters.
