Jul 12 - Obama can't guarantee SS, Veteran & Disability checks go out if deal not reached Aug 3


 Jul 12 - Obama can't guarantee SS, Veteran & Disability checks go out if deal not reached Aug 3
topic by rell923 - 07-12-2011, 12:13 PM - Boxden > BX Daily Bugle - news and headlines


Scott Pelley: Can you tell the folks at home no matter what happens that Social Security checks are going to go out on August the 3rd? There are about 20 billion dollars of Social Security checks that have to go out the day after the government is supposed to go into default.
Obama: Well this is not just a matter of Social Security checks, these are veterans checks, these are folks on disability, their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out --
Scott Pelley: Can you guarantee as President those checks will go out on August the 3rd?
Obama: I can not guarantee those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it.

Source: First Read - If no deal by Aug. 2, Obama can't guarantee Social Security checks will go out

I know this is a tactical move by the president, but could backfire if the republicans wan't to play hardball and not come to a deal to increase the debt ceiling. I believe this isn't the real date, but to pump fear into the economy and force pressure on congress to get a deal done.

as vets. you muther!!ers need to be PISSED...i mean, i appreciate you guys for what you did for our country but this is one of the reasons why i could never f!ght for this country. The way this country treats its vets..especially the Vietnam vets... when the vets come home..they should be treated great by this govt..not get programs cut and other bull!!. its almost like the govt says they appreciate you but they dont show it...

but correct me if im wrong, tho...

I did read this article that you posted up...but that still doesn't exclude the fact that Obama and his administration has yet to do anything significant enough to make a "change"

Yeah I've been keeping up with the whole debt ceiling debate, and yet I find it funny that its NOW being addressed after all this reckless spending that he's contributed to...And the way I see it is that he's doing all of this !! now so he can build up some credibility because his term is ending and elections are coming up..

Obama proposed 4 trillion in spending cuts for medicare, social security, etc. He even said he'd raise the age for those eligable for social security, which is are ALL very important programs to the Democrats. So he basically showed leadership and went against his own parties interests in an attempt to compromise with Reupblicans. Now, in exchange he asked the Republicans for slight tax increases for millionaires and billionaires and that wouldn't even go into effect until 2013, cause Obama understands that the economy is still vulnerable, which is why he extended the Bush tax cuts in the first place. Boehner agreed with the deal on Friday and it looked like everyone was on the same page and a big agreement was about to pass, then over the weekend Eric Cantor and the rest of the tea party nuts on the right said they will be absoultely under no circumstances raise taxes and they say they're serious about addressing the defecit??? Basically Obama's proposal was for every $3 in cuts $1 in tax revenue would be gained from the increased tax for the rich and yet the republicans said no...As for the reckless spending. Its defenitely both parties faults. You can't simply single out Obama cause to be fair alot of his "spending" was basically from extending the Bush tax cuts and Recovery Act, which was necessary or else our economy would be in an absoulte depression right now. Plus, I didn't hear any Republicans talk about the defecit when Bush was giving tax cuts, taking us to a bunch of wars and basically starting a medicine program with no funds....then once Obama took power it all of a sudden just became an issue Regardless, this is the 2nd economic crisis in our country, and we NEED both spending cuts and tax increases on the wealthy. we gotta stop thinking everything in black and white its alot more complicated than that...Now Gimme my Props haha :agreement6:

More scare tactics.

Again, these idiots (Obama included) don't seem to understand that we have a SPENDING problem. Cutting spending will enable us to pay debts, and entitlements.

^^^this. I think it's hard to have change when you are f!ghting a war overseas and then f!ght a recession at home. He's !!ed up in the past but I'm with him on this. He understands that there has to be compromise on both ends to get the deficit down. I honestly think Boehner wants to reach a deal too but you have dumbasses in congress that are only thinking about their political careers.

So you hate me just because I have an opinion? And just because I have an opinion means that I'm an uninformed idiot? Go sit down somewhere Obama stan..


If it bothers you that much, then don't say !! to me....

Since I'm uninformed and you seem to know so much and act like you're better than me, then tell me something: What has been done to significantly "change" this country and turn it around to help benefit us?

There's no real reason for us to have a war overseas..We need to fix our own problems instead of having these useless wars overseas..And IMO to be honest, I think he's only doing this at this time because his term is ending and he needs to boost up his credibility and votes for the next election. And yet the sheep and Obama stans will fall for it..Like I said, that's just my opinion...
