  - I thought I heard on NPR that SS and Medicare were "cordined off" by democrats? Regards  uponit7771   Aug-02-11 02:13 PM   #23 
     - No. Super Congress can propose cuts to SS and Medicare  jtown1123   Aug-02-11 02:19 PM   #34

  - Would YOU put a gun to a senior citizens head, and then auto time the TRIGGER, and then say, "Well  LaydeeBug   Aug-02-11 02:17 PM   #29 
  - That gun wasn't at their heads the second conservatives took over the house? Regards  uponit7771   Aug-02-11 03:00 PM   #62 
  - There weren't any - nor cuts Medicare or VA benefits  jpak   Aug-02-11 02:17 PM   #30 
  - Nobody said there were. They will be proposed in Super Congress  jtown1123   Aug-02-11 02:20 PM   #36 
     - Again, your link PROVES YOU WRONG. Social Security is NOT included and Medicare is only on provider  KittyWampus   Aug-02-11 02:27 PM   #50 
     - No, the link proves me 100% right. SS, Medicare and Medicaid will be looked at in Super Committee  jtown1123   Aug-02-11 02:29 PM   #55 
     - What part of "off the fucking table" don't you understand?  jpak   Aug-02-11 02:27 PM   #52

        - Why don't you test your reading skills now?  jtown1123   Aug-02-11 03:23 PM   #73 
  - Not a one. n/t  quiller4   Aug-02-11 02:20 PM   #35 
  - yet.. or maybe not at all.. none of us know how THIS BILL will affect SS.  Dawgs   Aug-02-11 02:25 PM   #46 
     - Social Security is NOT INCLUDED IN THIS BILL.  KittyWampus   Aug-02-11 02:27 PM   #51 
        - The super committee created by THIS BILL can't make cuts to SS? n/t  Dawgs   Aug-02-11 02:30 PM   #58 
  - We won't know until December. It's been kicked down the road is all.  Dawgs   Aug-02-11 02:20 PM   #37 
  - Not a single benefit was cut.  quiller4   Aug-02-11 02:20 PM   #38 
  - Because they kicked that can down the road.  CleanGreenFuture   Aug-02-11 02:22 PM   #41 
     - Because it's specifically NOT IN THE BILL. Except potentially Medicare on the provider side.  KittyWampus   Aug-02-11 02:28 PM   #54 
        - WRONG!! The bill includes a super committee making future cuts, that...  Dawgs   Aug-02-11 02:29 PM   #56 
           - My understanding was BENEFITS were off the table regardless of cost cuts. The question is about  uponit7771   Aug-02-11 03:01 PM   #64 
              - Sorry, that's not correct:  jtown1123   Aug-02-11 03:32 PM   #75 
                 - This doesn't say whether or not SS or medicade BENEFITS are cordined off just that there could be  uponit7771   Aug-02-11 03:52 PM   #80 
  - Better not be any! Obama tried to cut it, but as we all know SS has nothing to do with the debt!  B Calm   Aug-02-11 02:26 PM   #48 
  - Only thanks to Boehner and the tea party not accepting Obama's deal. n/t  Dawgs   Aug-02-11 02:27 PM   #49 
  - That decision was delayed and deferred to the Super Congress  Bluenorthwest   Aug-02-11 02:36 PM   #59 
  - I thought the "deal" avoided cuts to the big 3 now ...  dtexdem   Aug-02-11 02:54 PM   #60 
  - Read Obama was going to announce cuts in State of Union, then with catfood comm, then debt ceiling.  Hoyt   Aug-02-11 02:58 PM   #61 
  - Sounds bout right  uponit7771   Aug-02-11 03:00 PM   #63 
  - And do you deny that righteous outrage and calling stopped those proposals?  jtown1123   Aug-02-11 03:21 PM   #71 
     - Don't think it made much difference, but I'm glad folks bitched enough to move it to a better forum  Hoyt   Aug-02-11 03:31 PM   #74 
        - haha the catfood commission benefits raising is meaningless compared the other  jtown1123   Aug-02-11 03:33 PM   #76
