People are sick of this cynical corporate hostage game.

Last edited Wed Dec 19, 2012, 11:15 AM - Edit history (5)

We are sick of having our seniors jerked around.

Either this is an assault, or it is a cynical attempt to manipulate public opinion. Either way, it is unconscionable.

In the worst case scenario, seniors are horrifically betrayed, violated, and assaulted by a Democratic President.

At the very least, we are being manipulated and propagandized to be grateful and consider it a great win if the President merely REFRAINS from one additional, vicious blow to the weakest among us, in the middle of a sea of other corporate assaults. In other words, the one percent cynically expect us to mistake the withholding of a contrived threat for actual representation and advocacy on our behalf.

That's not going to fly anymore.

This is about much more than Social Security

3. That's why the GOP wants to raid it.

 

Sadly, it looks like Democrats are going to be complicit in that raiding,

Stop making those that have already been forced to sacrifice, to help support more welfare for the rich.

Thanks for nothing, President Obama.
