Will Cowardly Democrats Help Republicans Kill Social Security?
November 6, 2011
By Rmuse

~SNIP~

The American people have given enough to Wall Street, banks, the wealthy, and corporations, but it is not enough for Republicans. They will not be satisfied until they have stolen every last penny from every last American regardless of age and given it all to the wealthy and their corporations. However, there are stupid Americans who fall for the ridiculous notion that Social Security has increased the deficit and within the group of idiots are Democrats, President Obama, and every Republican who has mislabeled Social Security an entitlement. If they stop using that one word and lift the cap on earnings, 97% of Americans would oppose any Republican effort at eliminating Social Security to decrease the nations deficit. Unfortunately, the president and nearly every Democrat have fallen into the Republican trap and will be complicit in damaging Social Security because they consciously relate it to entitlements and the nations deficit. It is the most disappointing thing Democrats have done since Obama was elected and they should be acutely ashamed.

Decent Americans deserve so much more and instead of courage and change, Democrats have become cowards and easily manipulated dolts who will complete conservatives 75-year mission to destroy a popular, sustainable social program. FDR would be ashamed that Democrats have embraced and joined in conservatives decades long goal to finally eliminate Social Security. The American people are going to end up paying the cost of Democrats who have moved so far right to appease Republicans and their corporate masters on Wall Street that it is easily their greatest failure in decades and it is all because of a lie and inability to level the playing field. Good Job!

4. Here's my prediction
Chained CPI, reduction in Medicare and Medicaid payouts to providers, and no tax increases, except for fees.

What do we get? Another year of extended unemployment benefits. It's not too far from the deal the President took when he still nominally had all of Congress in Democratic hands a year ago.

9. I think they will also move the Medicare age up in stages.
They will put it in line with the SS age that is going up in stages right now.

10. Yep, forgot that one
When the Medicare age was set at 65, it was done so to match the expected and usual Social Security retirement age. When that moved, it was only a matter of time before Medicare would catch up to it.

It's one of the reasons I'm trying to plow as much as I can into my HSA right now.

12. Of course they will.
But the propaganda mill will be running overtime to blame it on the liberals and independents that dared question those Democrats.
