...Social Security is on the chopping block,being put forth as a way to cut the deficit, and once again I don't hear one Democrat standing up to refute the lie.
It's being widely reported now that Republicans in congress as part of their latest proposal to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff" are including cuts to Social Security, but no media report on their proposal that I've seen has bothered to mention that Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit. It's one thing for the corporate media go along with the deceit, but why are the Democrats going along with it, too?
Here's a video clip of Ronald Reagan saying Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit. I'm still looking for one of President Obama saying the same thing.
