Obama has decided to stoop to the lowest possible low – which for him is pretty low – and begin scaring elderly Social Security recipients. He has now threatened to withhold checks from the elderly if he doesn’t get his way. This tactic was planned all along as you can tell simply by looking at the August 2, 2011 “drop dead” date for raising the debt ceiling.
How did Obama arrive at this magic date?
Social Security checks go out the next day – on August 3.
Finally some transparency from this Administration.
But here is the problem with Obama’s threat to old people. Social Security is withheld from workers paychecks every payday. The money for Grandma and Grandpa is not in doubt. The only way the money is not there is if Obama orders other bills be paid with the Senior’s money. Such as the massive raises he gave his White House staff, and the mounting bills from his and Michelle’s first class vacations at taxpayer expense.
Rush Limbaugh called this tactic by President Obama economic terrorism. And it is hard to disagree with that assessment.
Stop the scare tactics and the excessive spending. Threatening to hold Social Security checks hostage is proof this president is incapable of dealing with this or any crisis.
