In this Youtube video, Obama boldly silences critics who say he is going to make a dirty deal with Republicans to make cuts to Social Security.
I for one, look forward to Obama living up to his promise. He said these words to reassure me that a vote for him would be a vote for the continuation of the New Deal, not its demise. I believed him. I voted for him. Now it's his turn.
Breaking: Senator Bernie Sanders will be on HBO Real Time with Bill Maher tonite at 10PM to discuss this issue!!
H/T to Senator Bernie Sanders for tweeting this video that settles the controversy once and for all.
And YES, a CPI Adjustment IS a Cut.
Still not convinced? Take Robert Reich's two (2) minute mini-course on Chained CPI.
[Update: 2:05 PM Since this diary somehow got on the Rec List, I should disclose: I do believe Obama IS planning to make SS and Medicare cuts. This video clearly shows Obama did a bait and switch on people who voted for him. So yeah, I'm pissed.]
