  •  The Grand Bargain is Obama's plan (0+ / 0-)

    As bad as Ryan is, I refuse to support any effort that attempts to help Obama dodge responsibility for cutting SS.

    The only way to prevent SS cuts is to make Obama take them off the table. Period.

    If cutting Social Security & Medicare benefits for low income seniors is what Democrats do after they win a budget standoff, I'd hate to see what they do after they lose one.

    •  We need to oppose all cuts and changes (2+ / 0-)

      including chained CPI–which, as you point out, is in Obama's list of "acceptable" things. We won't stand for it-it's wrong-headed policy.

        The Grand Bargain will likely pass and the GOP will use it to campaign against Dems in 2014.  Obama thinks he can win this, he can't.  He has to take it off the table.
