As a hateful attempt to cut the nation's deficit, and avoid the dreaded fiscal cliff, the GOP is going all in to make cuts to Medicare despite the damage to the nation's elderly, and the budget.
The tragedy is that Republicans are more than willing to see America suffer a deep recession than they are to abandon their ideology of upward wealth redistribution to the wealthy.
After the White House took Social Security off the fiscal cliff negotiating table, Sen. Bernie Sanders applauded the move and called it a step in the right direction.
There has never been a better time for President Obama to educate the people about Social Security and its non-effect on the deficit and its financial health.
Both Democratic leaders in the Senate have Obama's back on the fiscal cliff. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are emphatic about the wealthy paying more taxes, and no cuts being made to Social Security.
Some liberals have the mind-boggling view there is no difference between Romney & Obama, and are even planning not to vote for Obama in swing states.
Romney's comments revealed his true feelings about Americans who are struggling, but he articulated in stark terms the entire Republican Party's contempt for the American people.
The inconsistencies between Paul Ryan's life and his ideals about self-reliance are impossible to overlook.
This ticket will absolutely depend on low-information voters enamored with right wing media. In point of fact, the vast majority of this country would be harmed by the policies these men represent.
The Republicans and their accomplices on Wall Street are trying kill Social Security by getting your payroll taxes instead of paying to the government.
The GOP hates big government, but they love the Price-Anderson Act which is an insurance program that allows nuclear power plants to pass the cost of any Fukushima-type disaster on to taxpayers.
In order to eliminate Social Security and Medicare, Republicans use entitlement society language to stigmatize using government benefits.
Bernie Sanders gave President Obama good marks for his State Of The Union address, but he also warned about coded language in the speech that hinted at cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
It's the 75 anniversary of Social Security and so, naturally, Republican leaders and candidates want to take it away from us, being the modern day anarchists they are. Any government program that does not benefit the corporations needs to go. President Obama has sworn to honor and protect your Social Security benefits from the Republicans, whose candidates have made privatization a key part of their agenda.
