    that if Obama had clear supermajorities in the House and Senate, he'd be trying to cut Social Security? That's nonsense! He is desperately maneuvering to try to govern despite Republicans obstructing him at every turn. You can disagree with his strategy (indeed, in retrospect, he probably screwed up by not letting Bush's tax cuts expire completely) but sacrificing the social safety net is not his goal. And I don't believe he's going to touch security unless he gets Republicans to agree to a substantial tax increase.
