Obama Is About To Sell Out Ordinary Americans
The indications are, he will.
I had always believed, and several times written on Technorati that Obama is a wolf in sheep’s clothing—translation—he is a Republican under the disguise of a progressive.
Speaking in Washington in front of a group of corporate leaders, the president said, “I think there's a recognition that maybe they can accept some rate increases as long as it's combined with serious entitlement reform and additional spending cuts. And if we can get the leadership on the Republican side to take that framework, to acknowledge that reality, then the numbers actually aren't that far apart,”
The president’s statement is a clear indication that he is about to sell out the 99 percent American people one more time. When someone refers Social Security and Medicare as entitlement programs, the person is dishonest and clearly betrays ordinary Americans, because those two programs are not entitlements but government sponsored insurance programs. People have paid into them with the assurance of getting certain benefits; therefore, changing the rules in the middle is simply unfair and unethical.
Obama’s idol President Roland Reagan had said on October 7, 1984, “Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit. Social Security is totally funded by the payroll tax ... if you reduce the outflow of Social Security, that money would not go into the general fund to reduce the deficit.”
Obama has all the trump cards at this time. As I explained in this article, all he has to do is ride the so-called Wall Street-coined “Fiscal Cliff” which is not even a hump on the road. Come New Year, everyone’s tax will go up. On January 2, he shall begin campaign style tour to force the hands of vulnerable GOP congress member’s constituencies to put pressure on them to vote for the bill that Senate has already passed proposing tax cuts for the middle class. It will be days before there will be a revolution within GOP, decimating them as a political party.
But indications are Obama instead will agree to plants the seed to destroy Social Security and Medicare. What the Republicans could not do, Obama will.
