Response to Bill USA (Reply #6)

8. My understanding is Obama is keeping the tax increases.

But Bowles-Simpson also included a lot of spending cuts, including cuts to Medicare and SS, which Obama opposes ó and rightly so, since that doesn't affect the deficit. But that's how they achieved the higher number. And if you put SS cuts on the table, Republicans will jump on it and never let go. It's not worth it.
