Obama is BRIBING the American people. He is essentially threatening to cut off Social Security for senior citizens and the disabled if we don't pay more in taxes.
He is threatening us and he is trying to blame Republicans.
Obama has the power to determine which government services continue to receive money once the debt ceiling is reached. It is HIS CHOICE. OBAMA decides whether to cut spending or not.
It is NOT the Republicans who are the problem. REPUBLICANS are doing EXACTLY what the American people elected them to do.
This is not a fight between Obama and the Republicans. This is a fight between the AMERICAN PEOPLE and Obama.
In November 2012 Obama will find out who will win that fight. I hope he has his golf clubs ready.
