164. Even if this is just a bluff...
The mere fact that a DEMOCRATIC President put this on the table makes it more likely that there will be cuts at some point, either now or down the road. It used to be just a republican wet-dream, but now it has the endorsement of a Democratic president as well. So even if the final package ends up not touching one dime of the "Big Three", Obama has still put them at greater risk.

And by the way, are there ANY of his campaign promises we can really trust at this point. Bush stole his way into the White House and Obama lied his way in.
