Obama renews budget offer
to cut social safety nets

Reuters, by Richard Cowan

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/3/2013 7:33:01 PM

WASHINGTON- President Barack Obama raised anew the issue of cutting entitlements such as Medicare and Social Security as a way out of damaging budget cuts, a White House official said on Sunday, as both sides in Washington tried to limit a fiscal crisis that may soon hit millions of Americans. Signaling he might be ready to explore a compromise to end automatic spending cuts that began late Friday, Obama mentioned reforming these entitlement programs in calls with lawmakers from both parties on Saturday afternoon. "He´s reaching out to Democrats who understand

He´s never compromised in his life. He is dictator. He is bereft of love of country - he only loves himself. That is why he see´s republicans as the enemy.

Enough of this foolishness. No more CRs. No more cuts targeted at the (more conservative) elderly. Cuts must be for his "clients", too.

It is high time for a proper budget via normal order. Do it right.

Especially, no more deals that kick the can into next year, which is another critical election year. Do it now.

How about the goverment give up fancy offices and hefty retirement money for one or two terms. How about all of them - with a few exceptions becoming millionaires while in office. Term limits, no retirement pay and regular offices, not palaces. They have been using the SS money for years instead of it being banked.

Since when is Social Security an "entitlement"?

Also is there any truth to the rumor that SS checks now say "Federal Benefit"?

#5, you are correct. Social Security is NOT an entitlement. Every paycheck we earned had money confiscated from it regardless of whether or not we wanted to participate. Employers were forced to match it.

Entitlement? I don´t think so.

I am all for cutting EBT, obama phones and all the rest, but those that think just cutting these things will fix the budget are the real clueless ones. Medicaid, medicare and social security are unsustainable as they are right now. There is no way around it. They need to increase revenue to these programs or cut them drastically. Any other budget cuts are just nibbling around the edges.....

#13, for starters, they might either re-init SS to be only for those who pay in and retire - nothing else, or give us all our money back that they stole at gunpoint over the years. And lose mediscare and mediscam - or quit forcing us to join it. Don´t libtards always scream about having ´freedom of choice´? Well neither of these programs offer any choice.
Of course, if they obeyed the constitution we wouldn´t be in this mess because they wouldn´t be stealing our money and wasting it buying votes.

From Merriam-Webster, definition of entitlement:
1a: the state or condition of being entitled : right
1b: a right to benefits specified especially by law or contract
2: a government program providing benefits to members of a specified group; also : funds supporting or distributed by such a program
3: belief that one is deserving of or entitled to certain privileges

#5 and #12, which part of this do you not get in regard to entitlement status? It´s exactly what SS is. The government argued before the courts in the 1930s that it is a federal benefit program, and nothing has changed. The fact that all of us were forced for decades via taxation to send part of our earnings to this Ponzi scheme does not change its basic nature.

#13 hits the ten ring by addressing the problem. It´s repugnant that the government threw the money away, but the fact is, the money is gone and cannot be recovered, and we need to address what is in front of us. The system is broke and requires a fix, as do all bloated government programs. If Zero wants to cut social safety nets, he should start with every refundable tax credit, but all must be addressed.

Let´s call all "welfare" programs what they are -- the enslavement of the taxpayer to the layabouts to subsidize their irresponsible breeding, their education, their free meals, their cell phones, their school lunch programs, their mortgages, for starters.

"Entitlements" are paid to those who paid into those programs for decades, who are indeed entitled to them.

You don´t need to cut anything.All you have to do is pass a law with a mandatory minimum sentence on people who systematically steal from social programs,especially doctors who over charge on medicare and medicaid. It shouldn´t take a brain surgeon to spot some doctor claiming to see a hundred patients a day.Melendez´s doctor buddy is a perfect example.You have welfare people who stage robberies in order to get their food stamp cards refreshed up to 3 times a year.

You have illegal aliens claiming nephews back in Mexico as a dependent to jack up their earned income checks.Identity thieves have their refund checks routed to a Nigerian bank and no eyebrows are raised.The bosses simply say refer these cases to the criminal division of the IRS who has over 300,000 cases on backlog.But if you try to escape Obamacare these people will track you down in a heartbeat.Just about all government agencies have been co-opted by the left who protect their base voters from criminal charges.

The whole idea that you can continue to collect welfare benefits while working,then cash in on earned income is absurd.This is allowed to go on in a form of social justice.

DENVER— Denver´s mayor will visit Amsterdam next week partly to learn about marijuana regulation in the country that led the way in pot liberalization. The city announced Thursday that Michael Hancock and other officials plan to meet with representatives of Amsterdam´s municipal government during a trip mainly focused on economic development. The Netherlands recently has taken a harder line toward marijuana, including banning tourists from visiting coffee shops where pot is sold. Amsterdam still allows tourists in the shops but has been closing ones near schools. The mayor and his delegation also will tour the Netherlands´ main international airport and

Calling her a "mama grizzly" who will protect Southwest Florida, Republican political power Sarah Palin backed congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto on Thursday, breezing through Southwest Florida for a private fundraiser. Palin, the former governor of Alaska, 2008 vice presidential nominee and Republican firebrand, served up barbecue and a side of support for Benacquisto, one of four GOP candidates running in the April 22 special election for a vacated U.S. House of Representatives seat. The pair were joined by about 100 people in an East Naples backyard, listening as Benacquisto’s most high-profile endorser rallied her troops.

Justice Clarence Thomas’s influence was on full display in the Supreme Court’s landmark decision to strike down a key campaign finance restriction. And it’s just one in a string of cases in which Thomas could be dragging the court toward his way of thinking. Chief Justice John Roberts penned Wednesday’s plurality decision, which eliminates the limit on the total dollar amount an individual may give to political candidates and committees. But Thomas, seen by many as the court’s most conservative justice, wrote a concurring opinion that both represented the decisive vote in the 5-4 decision, and beckoned the justices to

The communications giant Comcast announced in February that it would buy Time Warner Cable for $45 billion, creating the largest cable provider in America, with more than 33 million customers. That is about one third of the U.S. cable and satellite television market. FCC approval is required for the merger to go into effect. Critics of the deal say it would lessen competition and lead to even shoddier customer service. They are probably right, as all of us will soon find out, because there is little chance the merger will be stopped. Comcast, Time Warner, and their political fixers have

They also seemed to give Obama the impression that he’s a really funny guy. On Wednesday, he told a University of Michigan crowd of 1,400 that he visited a local deli, Zingerman’s. He proceeded to tell a long story about ordering the small Reuben sandwich, which he said was “killer.” That got a good laugh.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke.
