No matter how many times Barak Obama proposes cutting Social Security I still feel sick when it happens. He's doing it again -- not just Social Security but Medicare, too -- in the budget he'll release soon, according to a New York Times story from today headlined Obama Budget To Include Cuts To Medicare And Social Security.
If anyone thinks he hasn't tried to cut Social Security already, I've written about many instances when he has. Just go down to the search box on the lower right side of this page and type in "Social Security". It brings up page after page of links. I've looked up statistics, too, that show that before Social Security was enacted most seniors used to live in poverty. I written about the poor farms where they used to send these people and about their lower life expectancy because they didn't have decent food to eat becasue they couldn't afford it.
This guy, Obama, is not a Democrat. You can't propose to cut Social Security and Medicare and be a Democrat, and any elected Democrat who doesn't denounce his budget, just like they did Paul Ryan's budget, isn't a Democrat, either. Not in my mind. No one from our New Mexico Democratic delegation to Washington has said anything so far, that I can see, but you won't hear a peep from them because you never do, which is really, even more disgusting. They can't use the excuse that they have to govern the whole country like Obama can.
You can say times have changed. You can say the party has changed. You can say this is what you have to
do nowadays. You can say whatever you want. These people aren't Democrats. They can't just redefine what the word "Democrat" means. They can't strip the word of all its meaning. Not with me they can't. I don't care what they call themselves. These people are not
Democrats. They make me sick.
