    Screw over those who have worked for years and put into the system but give to those who are not citizens and have never contributed a dime.

    No thank you, sir.

    Write the white house. Write your representatives. Don't let Obama and the republicans STEAL the benefits that YOU paid for. Shame on Obama for selling out seniors. I expect this kind of crap from the republicans but real democrats stand up for social security. Don't let conservatives cut your benefits while keeping tax loopholes for the rich. Close the loopholes that even Romney wanted to close. Stop subsidies to big Oil, big Ag, big Pharma and reckless banksters.

    Progressives oppose Obama. Oh really? That's hilarious! Where are they going to go?
    So anyway... Leave SS alone and quit stealing from it. People were forced to pay in all their lives and expect a return. You want to cut? Start with some of the free handouts that allow potential workers to sit home.

    So the fuzzy math that President Hussein Obama and administration uses all of a sudden doesn't seem too good. Interesting. Instead of fiddling with Social Security which does need to be addressed, how about NOT putting millions of ex-felons on Obamacare?

    Oh boy let's see, his middle name is Hussein thanks for pointing that. Nothing to do with anything. Moving on, there's no such thing as an ex felon. Once a felon always a felon. If a person is out of prison then they are paying taxes so why shouldn't they receive it. If a person did a couple of years in prison then why should they not have rights any more?

    @PopapillRush Didn't they teach you anything in school? Or were YOU popping pills? If you do the crime, you do the time and along with that you lose some of your rights like voting. Many will not employ felons. I think it is a great idea. I would never hire one let alone want to work next to one.

    All legislatures should have to balance a family budget for several months on SS. Out of touch politicians who see no value and have no responsibility for a dollar, opm. Cost of living increases almost weekly, and they throw billions away on junk lunatic countries, ship our work out, bring illegals in. Crazy! No need to raise taxes, cut spending. Bring our work back home, support "Made in the USA"!

    SSI wasn't supposd to support a family; it was designed to support its recipient at a basic level.

    Obama is trying to work with the other side; if the teabaggers would stop protecting the rich, wecould make this a better budget.

    The Social Security Disability Program is in need of a major overhaul. All of these deadbeats with their bad backs and depression issues should get the boot.

    and lay on their backs stoned and drunk with a remote in their hand, until dark that is. Then some become property removal engineers, PC for a frigging thief. Easier than working. Workers in this country should go on a strike across the board, till Capitol HIll shapes up. They can't stand much more, 11 states with more out of work than working, supporting the poor, the illegals, the govenment, on and on. And they want more, from the retired who already worked their entire life.

    cutting what someone paid in is stealing as is all things taken from ss and medicare. those folks paid into this when working. it is the same as if someone else takes money out of your bank account.

    not really because the average life time benefits paid is greater than the taxes paid. The gap is paid by those who pay in after you start drawing benefits (which is why it is basicly a legal ponzi scheme).

    @Yank People don't die of old age on a ponzi scheme. It was supposed to be workers supporting workers, that comes out of folks check, but, it was stolen, used for other purposes by the stewards, and now they want the workers to pay more, take less, for their own incompetence and missuse of opm..... That money should have never been touched, much less squandered by politicians.

    @Hillofbeans the money was not taken, the money was "invested" in T-bills (so we have to pay for it twice). The "workers supporting workers" is a legalized and mandatory Ponzi scheme. What happens when there is no longer any money left to fund the workers currently paying in? The same thing as every Ponzi scheme.

    The party {progressive liberals} that talks about give, give, give doesn't like giving up much. Once again definition problems, they define give, give, give as take, take, take.....

    @Knightkore Except for the one fact that you choose to conveniently ignore. Seniors have paid their money in. The Government stole it. Republicans and Democrats alike. It's not their money. You don't get to cut Seniors money because GW Bush took 800 billion in a single year and more than 5 trillion from SS in 8 years and Obama is on course to do exactly the same. You don't make old people pay for the corruption of YOUR party or anyone else's. Try and see how many Republicans there are left in Congress. Obama is an asshat. But you're being just as big of one advocating ripping off the seniors. PERIOD. Get your worthless churches to pay for it.

    @jessejaymes HMMM.....A M E N
    Ya know, I paid (extorted) into SS and Medicare for (now) 43 years! Last I looked (2011), my SS "payments" from me and my employer equaled $130,000. Medicare about 1/2 that. If I was allowed (see 5th word in this statement) to invest this money, right now (at a modest 3% return) I would be looking at close to 1 million dollars. Though not rich, I could draw returns for that money to retire right now (HMM....in CR) comfortably. And never touch that original 1 million doing that!
    Repubs are criminals. Dems are criminals. Both belong in Gitmo....along with the other terrorists!

    @stepped_in_it Absolutely correct. Every single congress and President starting with Eisenhower has stolen from Social Security. Now it's time to pay the fiddler and the chickenshit criminals can't find the money. they can find money for Wall Street but nor for the people they stole from.

    Truth be told Obama don't give a damn about how many boxes been delivered remember he's the President and he has the power of executive order to overide anything that presents itself.

    With Obamacare looming over US like the plague and all the wasteful and irresponsible spending we've seen during the years he wants to cut into these programs.

    We're facing another crisis.

    What's next?...401K's and IRA.

    The fix for social security is to remove the income cap for contributions.

    Medicare is a big problem still, and that can be taken care of by putting medicare clients on a means tested copay and deductible system, and using competitive bidding for services and equipment.
    (I don't see why we should buy a Hoveround for everyone who wants one.)

    But Obama is headed in the right direction.

    We'll need cuts to things we don't want to cut, and taxes we don't want to pay if we are to effectively deal with the deficit and debt problems.
