Obama Uses 2nd Term to Screw Seniors

There will a lot of Dems out there that won't repost this entry or re-tweet - How dare you the President!  Basically that attitude is saying to me and other Americans - you lost your first amendment rights when we voted in a Dem to the White House - how sad. - no better than the right-wing.

Good thing it's his second term - cause I sure as hell wouldn't vote for him, again
Fool me once shame on you
Fool me twice - shame on me

Maybe he's intentionally been saving this crap for the second term - so he would face no recourse.

He's screwing consumers with the appointments he is making.
He continues to try to negotiate with Repugs -w hen he has proven, he doesn't have the skills.
He's screwing seniors with the policies he is pushing.

I'm done with him.

The left is lashing out at a proposal to reform Medicare that President Obama said he would consider as a way to reduce the deficit.

Left-leaning groups and liberal lawmakers say that combining Medicare's doctor and hospital coverage would saddle beneficiaries with higher costs.


The debate echoes another recent conflict between the White House and progressive Democrats over the chained consumer-price-index (CPI).

That policy would cut Social Security benefits by changing the way the program's cost-of-living increases are calculated, a move estimated to save $340 billion in federal spending over 10 years.

Obama proposed the policy as part of his 2014 budget, angering many Democrats on the Hill.

Liberals argue that neither "chained CPI" nor combining Medicare A and B serves seniors.

"This could just be a way to ask people to pay more for their premiums," said top Energy and Commerce Democrat Henry Waxman (Calif.) of overhauling Medicare's benefit structure. "It's just shifting costs."

Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said uniting Parts A and B would be a "net loss" for patients.

"We've resisted it," he said. "Combining them is not going to control rising costs."
