Response to democrattotheend (Original post)

2. You're right. Obama said to keep pressure on representatives of both parties to disallow changing

Social Security (except for the cap), Medicare (except eliminating excess profits) and Medicaid (the funding increased and guidelines relaxed) to achieve universal coverage.

And to resist chained CPI that hurts seniors and disabled the most, including veterans. Those are the GOP's proposals.

An expansion of the primary safety net will blunt the reduction of programs currently exist only to ameliorate the gaps before the changes the ACA made. Relaxed rules help to achieve the same standard as offered to those covered by the larger safety net programs now.

So we must stay informed and focus on the overall purpose, not necessarily the names of programs that might be cut, nor be frightened by the right wing spin in the media.
