The Capitulater in Chief has put cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid on the table in an effort to get the Republicans to like him. Let's count the ways this is possibly the stupidest thing Obummer has done since taking office:
- Republicans have always hated Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. They've wanted to get rid of them for years but they could not because they are some of the most beloved programs a Democratic party president ever signed into law. Allowing any cuts to them would be tantamount to surrender.
- Social Security isn't part of the deficit, it's paid for by taxes on payroll. If it's not driving the deficit, like the wars of terror on Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya are, then it should not be part of a deficit solution.
- Cutting these programs will cost the Idiot in Chief votes. In fact, it may cost him his base.
- If you want to piss off the biggest voting bloc in this country then be sure to cut the Medicare that so many senior citizens depend on, and even though I'm not a senior citizen I depend on it too since I am on SSDI.
On the other side of the aisle, Orin Hatch of Utah has said that the poor and working poor of this country need to step up and contribute more to solving the deficit that he helped create under Bush Jr. Yeah, you heard that right. The man who helped create this deficit wants the people with the least money to pay to fix it. And yes, he voted to keep the Bush/Obama tax cuts for the wealthiest people.
So in case you're not following along, rich people get a tax cut and poor people get to pay more in taxes to make up for the money the rich aren't paying in thanks to people like Orin Hatch. And on top of that he want to ban porn. He wants to fuck us out of our money and he wants us to not be able to get any release after he does so. Fucking idiot.
Obama and Hatch both are eat up with stupid.
