Why You Shouldn’t be Surprised That Obama is Cutting Social Security and Medicare [Video]

In this video, Yvette Carnell discusses Obama’s budget proposal, which includes a plan to cut Social SecurityYvette and pascal image2 and Medicare, with writer Pascal Robert. This move by the Obama White House is being viewed by some as a move to pre-emptively negotiate with Republicans, but as Robert points out, Democrats aren’t progressive, and are just playing on the legacy of the New Deal. Even  former President Bill Clinton was  caught on tape telling Republican Rep. Paul Ryan that he hoped Democrats would cut entitlements. This plan by Obama to cut entitlement was detailed in the following video.

In addition, in a 2007 interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Barack Obama said everything should be on the table, including cutting the retirement age and cutting benefits, as it relates to *fixing* Social Security.

  41. As one who went door to door to help get Barack Obama elected and reelected, I demand that he stop letting the conservatives control his agenda. We need seniors and everyone who hopes to some day be a senior to loudly voice our opposition to this dis-service.

    I agree that ‘Slick Willie’ was not the first black president, because he made sell out deals in order to maintain his position.

    What do you think would happen if investors were told that we are going to take a portion of their investment returns to help reduce the deficit?

  42. It’s time for Americans to protest and start calling the White House. I mean it. I just heard, this week that Ronald Regan stated that social security doesn’t even affect the deficit, because it’s paid through federal (payroll) taxes. A Senate representative recently stated that not only is there a surplus, the social security program is the most solvent program in the world. Someone is lying!

  43. Been saying these same things to black folks until Im blue in the face..

    You get the government you deserve, and Americans had better wake up to that truth and do it fast, because we won’t a pot to p*ss in if this keeps up.

    If the public wants to act ignorant and let their government run on autopilot?

    we are all gonna crash and die together.

  44. The real deal with social security, which you won’t hear in the debate, is that the trust funds have been stolen and used for general spending. This started under Lyndon Johnson and continues up till now. Had the trust funds not been diverted, tax rates would have been appreciably higher and that would have brought into question the various wars the trust funds (along with borrowing) financed. Hence, there are two problems; the actuarial one caused by folks living much longer and the theft. With regard to the latter, they don’t have the money to put the “borrowed” funds back. The tragedy about this whole thing is the failure to really discuss what the problem is. Essentially, it’s the same as borrowing from your 401k so you can get the big house rather than getting a second job to generate more income. Our money is sitting in the coffers of the munitions manufacturers and that makes this move by Obama and the rest of them total BS. In a way, Obama more than any other politician, has been a wake up call about the true nature of our political system. The people haven’t been represented for quite some time.

    well being one of the Americans who get social security ,and i barely get enough to live on,and one of my friends who never worked a day in this country and their mother is here illegally gets twice as much as i do .it makes me so angry,when they use my hard earned money to build a house in Mexico,and i worked all my life and i have to pinch
    pennies,all the black politicians ought to be ashamed of themselves ,because they are a part of the problem ,not the solution.put faith in god not man, because like the wind they change just to get the vote.
