Obama appears to be threatening to withhold social security checks if the debt ceiling isn’t increased on time. If you are expecting a social security check, you should be mad. No, furious. Call your senator and congressman. Demand to know why the debt ceiling wasn’t passed when Obama controlled both the house and senate. That’s right. He had total control and ability to pass virtually any rule, regulation or law desired. Hey, he was even able to cram Obamacare through!
The need for an increase in the debt ceiling is no surprise. The United States has been increasing the debt ceiling with incredible predictability. So, why did Obama decide not to increase the debt ceiling when he could? Why is he now threatening your social security checks? Seems to be a direct manipulation of the media and the general public. It makes good press to threaten to withhold social security checks. It will make even better press when the almighty one announces that “he” arranged for a great deal to increase the debt ceiling. Yes, it will happen and it will happen that way. He will take 95% of the credit for being the one who put everything together. Let’s remember that he was the one who could have done it without a fight just a few months ago!
This isn’t a case of Republicans blocking Obama. It’s another case of Obama not taking care of business when he should have been. Back to playing golf. Not me, Obama.
