I voted for Barack Obama twice, however I can no longer defend him since he is advocating unfair and unnecessary cuts to Social Security.
President Obama OWES the American people a clear explanation:
- WHY he is choosing to advocate for cutting SS after repeatedly promising not to?
- WHY he is buying into the debt/deficit propaganda and the austerity bull---- when it’s clear that austerity has not worked anywhere else in the world and when virtually EVERY economist says it’s JOBS that ought be priority #1 for fixing the economy, NOT cuts!
- WHY he is insisting in coupling the need to “do something” about SS with talks about the deficit, when SS has not added ONE CENT to the deficit. Talks about any “fixes” to SS ought to be separated from debt talks and any fixes to SS can wait since the program is fully solvent for at least another 20 years. Why now?
- WHY he insists on CUTTING SS when other options that most Americans support and which are MUCH less damaging are available – such as raising or removing the FICA cap, or raising FICA tax rates – yet these options are NEVER mentioned or discussed by his admin. Why is that?
