Bernie Sanders: Mr. President, I am Disappointed

Mr. President, I am Disappointed

Remember when the White House said Social Security was “off the table” in the deficit talks because it has a $2.7 trillion surplus and hasn’t contributed to deficits? Remember when President Obama pledged not to cut benefits for retirees, widows and orphans? The White House has now agreed to adopt a stingier formula for cost-of-living increases which would cut benefits. In a Senate floor speech, Bernie said the White House had offered repeated assurances that would not happen “and that Social Security should be off the table in terms of deficit reduction. I heard that many, many times. So I wonder how Social Security suddenly has gotten back on the table, including a chained CPI with devastating cuts to seniors and disabled vets,” Sanders said. “Mr. President, I am disappointed.”

I read the OP, watched the video, and recommended the OP without noticing who posted it.

Then I read your comment, and thought (cough) no way!

So I scrolled to the top of the thread to see who the original poster was, and sure enough…

Now I have to ask.

Is it that miracle time of year, or does SS have an immediate effect in the life of ProSense?

61. Maybe it's like Bart Ehrman, who peered so deeply at the scriptures

 

he lost his faith.

Maybe ProSense searched for a counter argument to Obama wanting to steal our money to pay for what conservatives have done to this country and realized there wasn't one. That maybe Obama really is what he says he is: a Republican.

67. How long can you be screwed before you realize your being screwed...

For most Americans, faith and idol worship convinces them that a lifetime of whips, chains, and bondage is anything but...

Even if truth were a ton of bricks waiting to fall on their head, cognitive dissidence ensures they wont be moved, so they keep going back for more of the same.

I lost my faith along time ago, but still, for those who are still holding on, them bricks have got to hurt!

Seems like a certain group of people always manage to get the stinky end of the stick and a certain group of people always manage to come out benefiting even more from it.

60. TPTB (The Powers That Be) is a very small minority of super rich psychopaths who...

Finance our pretend democracy by pumping hundreds of billions of fraudulently gained wealth into the campaign coffers of both political parties.

And with the blessings of right wing religion psychopaths, rigged elections, and the M$M (Main Stream Media) which is also owned by the TPTB, they can assure that most ideological blind democrats and republican will vote for the TPTB's very own hand picked venal sock puppets.

In other words, the TPTB is the one's who decide, with few exceptions, who most Americans will vote into elective office.

This insures that, no matter what the outcome of the election, the TPTB will always be the big winner, and the to blind to see 'Blue and Red workers' will always be the big looser.

34. I Join Senator Sanders in expressing disappointment in accepting an extremely RW panacea

as the cure for all the nation's ills. Disappointment times infinity squared to the millionth power. Of course we all knew when Messrs, Simpson and Bowles were appointed, social security, Medicare, and Medicaid would bear the brunt and the most affluent and large, highly profitable corporations would continue to slop mightily at the public welfare trough.

55. Well Lawrence O'Donnell said last night that the Republicans would not accept their own deal

today and he was right. Isn't is possible that the President knew that they would not accept those deals and handed them to them anyway. Now he doesn't have to give them anything I think.

If we go past Jan. 1 I doubt that the Republican's are going to say "no'' to a tax cut to the middle class.

71. But Bernie Sanders isn't even a Democrat.

Which is weird, because for the first time since I was a teenager, I'm not sure if I'm one either.

75. Signed because I love Sanders, not because I have any faith in theeffectiveness of petitions.

Our politicians are bought and paid for and looking for more in the future.

A million signatures won't change that.

76. Way past time

to stop negotiating with the limp Boehner. There is no point in negotiating with the Right. He should try throwing a few bones to his left. Strengthen SS, Medicaid, Medicare and please tax the rich and cut the fat corrupt wasteful DoD.

77. ProSense, I sometimes feel that Bernie Sanders is the only person

in the Senate who expresses my views. He has never wavered, never disappointed.

82. Mr. President, I am Disappointed

I am extremely disappointed and feel betrayed by President Obama's promises not to touch Social Security. I am disabled living with MS and gave my vote to Obama. I begged people to vote for him saying he would be much stronger second term and what does he do he lets the right still take over. Obama what is wrong with you!!! I want to you to fight and fight hard for the people that voted for you because if you don't I will never vote again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

83. 18829 here...

sometimes I think I am too cynical when I tell people that Wall Street runs this country, and that the scene in DC is just a dog and pony show. But they keep proving me right.
