How many of you or your parents will be effected by this?????

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's proposed budget will call for reductions in the growth of Social Security and other benefit programs while still insisting on more taxes from the wealthy in a renewed attempt to strike a broad deficit-cutting deal with Republicans, a senior administration official says.

The proposal aims for a compromise on the Fiscal 2014 budget by combining the president's demand for higher taxes with GOP insistence on reductions in entitlement programs.

The official, who spoke on a condition of anonymity to describe a budget that has yet to be released, said Obama would reduce the federal government deficit by $1.8 trillion over 10 years. The president's budget, the first of his second term, incorporates elements from his last offer to House Speaker John Boehner in December. Congressional Republicans rejected that proposal because of its demand for more than a $1 trillion in tax revenue. LINK: http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/news...ma-Budget/

I didn't know Social Security was an "entitlement". I thought people paid into it for years, in the hopes of having a few dollars to spend in their golden years.

See, I thought entitlement was giving people money for having children. Or handing out free phones to anyone who asks politely.

Guess I was wrong.

This is where it should start.

Our Senators and reps need to tighten their belts before hitting the rest of us for budget cuts.

Social Security is so much easier to cut, because there is a good chance many of them will die before next voting period. On the other hand, cutting welfare would make your voting block very angry, and they need several more decades of handouts.

Couldnt agree more Kimba. People that worked and paid into SS should not be punished. Greedy people wont give anything back such has welfare gov. employees like congress. Maybe only give SS to those who actually worked for it would be a good idea also.

Here is one thing that blew my mind.

Was working for the bank, and spoke to a younger woman. Maybe 21, 22. Had four children. Each one of them, was getting SSI deposits each month. Between that, and other deposits, she was bringing in over 4k each month. And she had concerns about her debit card not working. All because she was over drawn by more than $1k.

After that one, I went outside for a smoke.

I must be in the wrong profession to actually have to WORK for money.
