Progressives Blast Obama’s Expected Proposal To Cut Entitlements
I’m not buying it. Do they think this is for real from Obama? Are they just faking it so Obama can later say see I tried to work with them. We haven’t even seen the plan yet so how can they be upset.
Check it out:
Progressive groups and lawmakers, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), are blasting the Obama administration for cuts to Social Security and other programs expected to be unveiled in the president’s budget next week.
One progressive group, Democracy for America, is threatening primary challenges to those Democrats who support the cuts.
Sanders said he is “terribly disappointed and will do everything in [his] power to block” a part of the proposal that would reduce cost-of-living increases for Social Security recipients by tying them to a more restrictive measure of inflation, known as “chained CPI.”
