12/3/2011 - Obama pushes payroll tax cut extension; 4/24/2012 - Social Security closer to insolvency

One must wonder if the administration chooses to be complicit in damaging social security, or if they are completely deaf to Progressives who offer the best solutions to the countries problems - such as raising the cap on SS taxes on those making over 1 million a year which will make SS solvent for at least 75 years, as in Sen. Sanders currently proposed legislation (see http://www.sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/news/?id=f63d73c1-81df-4dfb-aac3-730092ed9406).

I hope he and his strategists realize just how much they need Progressives to win the election.

It would be nice to see him use the bully pulpit to continually push Sanders proposed legislation.
