Response to RBInMaine (Reply #3)

4. Cuts are not needed. He should veto cuts to vital social programs as Bill Clinton did in 1995.

Cuts to Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid or Veterans benefits should be vetoed.

If the Congress can muster 2/3 to override a veto fine.

Otherwise I don't understand what you are arguing for.

What is the point of having a Democrat for President if he will not even veto Social Security cuts?

Obama is giving away half the stuff before even going into the haggling. That's a pretty crappy negotiating technique. He's not stupid, so he must be doing it on purpose.

If the President signs cuts to social programs without making Congress come up with a 2/3 majority, that will be a betrayal of middle-class and working-class America.

ymmv.
