    Once again, President Obama seems to be on the verge of folding a winning hand.

    Social Security and the Obama Cave-In

    Especially foolish is the cut in Social Security benefits, disguised as a change in the cost-of-living adjustment formula. Before getting to the arcane details of the formula, here’s the bottom line.

    The proposed change will save only $122 billion over ten years, but it will significantly cut benefits for the elderly.

    We will soon learn what Obama, the progressive community, and congressional Democrats are made of.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

        I know several of these stalwart progressive reps are lame ducks now, alas; I don't know whether the incoming class will fill (or exceed) the gaps they will leave.

        Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
