    Let's not keep letting the Whack-the-Social-Safety-Net prime mover off the hook: Obama. This is his Catfood VII (for those who haven't lost track). Durbin is Obama's right-hand man and was appointed by Obama to be on his original Catfood Commission.

    Obama’s Right-Hand-Man Offers Social Insurance Program Cuts, Again

    How many times can the Obama administration offer cuts to the social insurance system, before Americans realize that the focus on government deficits is just a ruse?

    The mendacious focus on the deficit is just a tool to drive cuts in our social insurance programs, the only part of the government that is truly paid for through income taxes and FICA. The assault on working people continues:...

    Obama and the Democrats are only interested in keeping taxes low for rich people and corporations. If it is hard for you to  believe this is true, think of this koan, “Cuts to earned benefits are a form of taxation.” But only for people with incomes below the FICA cap of about 113K.
