Bloomberg: Obama open to cutting Social Security, hiking taxes on middle class

Well there it is as predicted. h/t AceHQ

Bloomberg:

President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.

“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”

As I have been saying since 2007, Obama is the ‘Democrat’ selected to cut Social Security and tax the middle class into oblivion. All the Obots who dedicated webpages to my comments in this regard can cram it like the taxes and benefit cuts we are about to get…frakkers…

…“What I can’t do is to set the thing up where a whole bunch of things are off the table,” Obama said. “Some would say we can’t look at entitlements. There are going to be some that say we can’t look at taxes, and pretty soon, you just can’t solve the problem.”…

Yeah! if you said no taxes on the middle class and no Social Security benefit cuts for the middle class then ‘Pretty soon’ you would sound like a free market, moderate Democrat and we can’t have that can we? Thanks again to the cabal of dunces in the Dem leadership who selected Obama, good luck getting a majority ever, ever, ever, ever again.

If this fool would let the economy GROW we would get out of this hole. Big Dawg cut taxes and GREW revenue!!!! When he increased taxes we were not in a recession, no one in their right mind would do that. Even in his ‘left’ mind Big Dawg didnt do that. My Gawd are these Obama people blinded by their determination to be the anti-Clinton anti-Bush or what?!

Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead: Plouffe called back to WH, says Obama must ‘fight like hell’, pass the hated health care bill and ‘pass politically difficult measures’ aka cutting Social Security, raising taxes….

And they’re off! It’s like the charge of the stupid brigade. As we have been predicting time immemorial, here come the SS cuts and tax increases. Obama is ready to focus like a laser, lol, on the deficit, BWAAAAHAA *cough cough*, and David ‘every fundraising email I send is an attack on Hillary or Sarah’ Plouffe has been called back to the fold to bravely lead Obama to the correct path for electoral victory…

So where does David suggest we begin? By ramming through the DESPISED health care bill of course! Followed by passing ‘politically difficult measures’, can you say ‘cutting Gen Xs Social Security’ and raising taxes?, cuz I can!’

David Plouffe in the WaPo:

…We still have much to do before November, and time is running short. Every race has unique characteristics, but there are a few general things that Democrats can do to strengthen our hand.

Pass a meaningful health insurance reform package without delay. Americans’ health and our nation’s long-term fiscal health depend on it. I know that the short-term politics are bad….

…That’s why Democrats must create a strong foundation for long-term growth by addressing health care, energy and education reform.

(MiM-Yeah b/c it’s not like every single speech of Obama’s has focused on health care, education or energy before now right? oh yeah)

…We must also show real leadership by passing some politically difficult measures to help stabilize the economy in the short term. Voters are always smarter than they are given credit for. We need to make our case on the economy and jobs — and yes, we can remind voters where Republican policies led us — and if we do, without apology and with force, it will have impact….

Great without apology and with force, this is just who Obama needs now! Someone to tell him DAMN THE TORPEDOES AND FULL SPEED AHEAD!! Passing ‘politically difficult measures’ gee wonder what that could mean…

Make sure voters understand what the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act did for the economy

See there is that patronizing BS again, we just don’t UNDERSTAND how WONDERFUL the 700 billion dollar boondoggle was! So the UE rate is still climbing and at 10% really is a sign of the success of the stimulus! It is apparently just a matter of enlightenment waiting to happen if they find just the right words, or tone in delivery of another greatest speech evah…Satori awaits us America! they just need a good Zen Koan….

Don’t accept any lectures on spending…(MiM- OMG cannot even begin to fisk this one)..We have potent talking points on health care, honest budgeting and cuts in previously sacrosanct programs.

Yeah David! Talk up how your guy tried to GUT 500 BILLION from Medicare, a previously SACROSANCT program, that’ll really turn the voters back to you! See he thinks it is GOOD, they are gonna double down and gut SS Im a tellin ya!

Plouffe also makes it really clear it is time to gin up the machine and get a few million more from ‘donors’ like DooDadPro and organize those ‘first time’voters, y’uh -huh..ACORN/SEIU/Soros they are calling you-uuuuuuu

…Our campaigns can leave no stone unturned, from believing in the power of grass-roots volunteers and voter registration, to using technology and data innovatively, to raising money –– especially with big corporate interests now freed up to dump hundreds of millions of dollars to elect those who will do their bidding. Democratic candidates must do everything well. Each one must make sure that the first-time voters from 2008 living in your state or district — more than 15 million nationwide — are in their sights. Build a relationship with those voters, organize them and educate them. On Nov. 3, many races are sure to be decided by just a few thousand if not a few hundred votes. These voters can make the difference. …

Yeah those ‘voters’ certainly made a difference in those Dem caucuses fer shure.

His next message is don’t let those millions of pixxed off Americans screaming STOP! get in the way:

Tuesday Roundup: Final revision to 3Q GDP in: 2.2%, Lobbyists have record year, and Reid slips supermajority requirement into Medicare cost cutting panel…

Update: Darth Vadar just rang the opening bell, I kid you not. LucasFilm is there, I see Bobba Fett!

We started at 3.5%, and now at third and final revision we are down to 2.2% on 3Q GDP. I am still calling for a double dip, because yes the Obamanomic policies ARE that bad.

In other news as MiM has predicted lo these many months, the Reid Amendment has put a supermajority requirement on overriding the iMAB panel decisions. Harry actually asked ‘cant we all get along after this’ on the floor this morning after they passed round 2 of their partisan vote to GUT MEDICARE. ugh what a tool. He is feathering his next for his LOBBYING job post election defeat.

LOBBYISTS had their BEST YEAR EVAH under Obama’s HOPEY CHANGEY NEW politics, HA!

Some folks still think the Medicare cuts will not happen, THEY WILL. This Supermajority rule is how it will be accomplished. No calls to Congress will make an impact when a Supermajority is required to overturn iMAB rulings. Like an HMO with no right of appeal, that is what they are giving our Seniors (and by extension through the exchanges which will follow these roolz, we are ALL getting this shaft)

This is the Orszagist dream panel where non practicing physicians like the loons who just announced the mammogram revisions will GUT MEDICARE. IT WILL HAPPEN. TELL EVERY SENIOR YOU KNOW.

SS is next. Gird your savings GEN X, they are coming for us.
