Poor little Republicans are afraid big bad President will not help them cut enttitlements.........

The poor little GOPers might have to say they want to cut social security and medicare all by themselves. They are afraid President Obama will not protect them and give them a nice protective political cover blanket to hide under. Poor Republicans! They will have to take the blame all alone. Sniff! Sniff!

1. they can't do it without him

and if he does help them, they will instantly turn around and blame him for it, and run their 2014 campaign on how he cut entitlements.

They're doing that now with the payroll tax increase, they are sending trolls to DU to complain about their paychecks and Rush just read some of their trolling on his radio show.

2. Social security is not an entitlement

Which more people should realize today, since their check yesterday likely was 2% smaller due to their increased PAYMENT into the fund.

4. Social security and medicare are American benefits, not entitlements.

They are entitlements when extremely well off people who do not need any help at all, take their guaranteed ss check and use medicare anyway.

7. these jerks are never happy which is why we might as well raise their taxes Eisenhower levels

 




they are whining about people making $450,000 having to pay a tiny bit more in taxes...meanwhile getting huge breaks in capital gains and estate taxes.

NOTHING makes them happy so we need to stop trying to please spoiled brats and just do what is right for the country.

8. Of course they don't know what to cut. They never have and never will. They talk

a good game but when it comes to governing they can't. Their cutting is just getting rid of it.
See if they can come up with cutting the military while at the same time making our military spending more efficient. You think any of those clowns can do that??

9. More critically they have no serious revenues

The 1:1 ratio deal is the second wisest piece of the deal next to restoring revenues to Social Security.
Make the TeaPubliKlans come forward with what they want to cut with CBO scored savings and CBO scored revenues and they won't have shit.

If you stick to it and refuse to "pre-negotiate" a plan that we think might well be reasonable to them as a basis to negotiate from. They want cuts, declare them and remember you must also come up with equal revenue, we'll meet her to discuss your proposals and counter as appropriate.
