Obama Sells-Out to GOP on Medicare

Monday, July 11, 2011

President Obama is ready to piss on millions of elderly Americans who are preparing to access Medicare, says he’s offering to raise the eligibility age for Medicare in the budget and debt talks with the GOP.

POLITICO has the details:

President Obama has put raising the Medicare eligibility age on the table in the budget and debt talks with GOP congressional leaders, a Democratic official familiar with the talks confirmed Monday. Obama said he would only agree to the change if it was part of a major deal on spending, and it demonstrated his commitment to taking on “sacred cows,” the official said.

Is this what President Obama meant when he said today it’s “time we eat our peas”?

    Obama is pathetic. We’ve got to get him out of office. The USA can’t take anymore of his “change.”

  2. ajihani says:

    I’m beginning to think if John Boehner and Mitch McConnell told Obama to send in the Army to round up all the seniors and disabled and shoot them en mass and grind them up for dog food, Little Barry would say “Yessum, Massa Boehner, Yessum Massa McConnell, I’ll have it done by Friday.”

    Obama is worse than was Jimmy Carter.

    This Ni&&ER with the Slave mentality, is still trying to get his over-seers to like him. Go back to Kenya NI&&ER, we’ve had way too much of you, you fucking LIAR!

  4. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    Congratulations Ni&&ER, you’ve helped the Rethuglicans achieve their greatest aspirations….. Destroy Medicare & Social Security, which has been their passion for more than 70 years. Fuck you ‘SLAVE BOY’………..

  5. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    Meanwhile……….. the NI&&ER has failed to cut Military Spending, failed to end any of our wasteful wars, and in fact has started two more wars, has extended tax breaks to the very rich, while fucking everyone else, and now he plans to solve his ‘Budget Crisis’ on the backs of the poor, the elderly, and the sick people of this country. This Ni&&ER has turned out to be an even worse ‘Resident’ than even George W. Bush was…….. Why has no one has tried to shoot the Ni&&er yet, I cant understand it, WHY has there not been an ARMED REVOLT YET? Again, FUCK YOU, NI&&ER BOY!!!!!!

  6. Randy Arroyo says:

    I think Obama is playing with fire. No politician who wants reelection touches Medicare and Social Security. It’s as if whoever is giving him advice is intentionally trying to throw the ’12 election to a Republican. Back off cuts to Medicare and Social Security, Barry.

    I have an elderly grandmother.

    She’s gone two years with no COLA to her Social Security benefits. Oh, she only worked 47 years before retiring and my brother and I send her $50 a month each to help her make ends meet.

    My grandmother can’t afford any more cuts to her income. In fact, according to the New York Times, her Part B Medicare will rise next year to more than $115 a month. My brother and I will pay it. If we don’t, she won’t be able to eat.

    I can’t stand President Obama for playing politics with people like my grandmother.

  8. Jolly Roger says:

    It is time for the damn Congressional dems to serve notice on Bushack HW Obama that we’ve had it. This isn’t what those of us who were stupid enough to vote for him sent him there to do.

    I knew this guy was a frigging winger. And I convinced myself that I was wrong. Well, you know…. I was WRONG twice.

  9. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    This Ni&&er would sell out his own Mother, if he got the chance…………. Election Day 2012 can’t come fast enough!

  10. FDRWeeps says:

    Obama is prepared to destroy America — not save it. He has no idea what cutting Medicare would do to America’s senior population. More than 50 million Americans over 65 and millions of disabled rely on Medicare for their medical coverage. He’s a tool who foolishly thinks offering to gut Medicare will make the Republicans come around to closing corporate tax cuts and increasing revenue by raising taxes. This is a sad day for America.

  11. Brigadoon says:

    You want to read some nutty shit, go over to Democratic Underground, the home of the O-Bots and read the responses to Obama’s commitment to slashing Medicare and Social Security. Comments like “he’s a brilliant strategist,” and, “Obama’s backing the Boehner into a corner,” and my favorite was some idiot who actually posted, “cuts to Social Security aren’t really ‘cuts’ because Obama Care will put more money in America’s wallets.” Can’t people think any longer?

  12. Joe in Colorado says:

    Brigadoon – You’re right. I just went over there and read community members posts that said Obama the “adult in the room” and who praised his stupid “eat our peas” line that no one understands except Obama’s loyalists. I’ve come to the conclusion none of it matters. We elect a Democrat who governs like a Republican and who launches an effort to destroy societies safety nets. We’ve been had. What is the point of going to the polls when we just get more of the same?

  13. Jim says:

    Why bother to work anymore? It just all goes to taxes and now, longer servitude to fund Obama’s wars.

  14. fran says:

    I think Obama should make good on his campaign promise for transparent government.
    Why are these budget negotiations happening behind closed doors?

    I want full press presence.
    I want the GOP on camera insisting Big Oil with billions in profits must continue to have subsidies & tax breaks.
    I want the GOP on film saying tax cuts for the rich are mandatory.

    Too if Obama is going to throw we the people under the bus w Soc Security & Medicare cuts, let’s have that on film for all to see & hear too.

    No more closed door deals.

  15. fran says:

    Oh! For the record, I am totally offended by the use of the term “Ni&&ER”

    We all know the writer is saying nigger & using 2 ampersand symbols (&&) does not make it less offensive.

  16. Mauigirl says:

    I don’t know yet what he’s up to. If Lawrence O’Donnell is right, he may be playing a very clever strategy. Or he may not be. If he’s playing a strategy he cannot blink, he has to bluff all the way until Boehner caves. If he loses we get Medicare and SS cuts which I personally do not think he wants to have happen. It would be political suicide. So I’m waiting to see what happens…fingers crossed.

  17. Jolly Roger says:

    Fran, I agree; I’m offended as a biracial person, and as a person who can think. There are plenty of ways to criticize this President without resorting to racist slurring.

  18. rockfish8 says:

    The people calling Obama nigger and slave are just white trash tea baggers.Obama has caved on many issues,but the midterms forced him to do so.If we get the garbage that calls our president these disgusting things out of office and regain control of the house,Obama will be a key tobe reelected,as if the GOP gets another conservative on the court during those 4 years,abortiona,medicare,S.S and everything else will be gone.
