President Obama has threatened to cut Social Security payments if the debt ceiling is not increased. In response, Senator Mike Lee has taken the president to task by outlining a number of line items in the budget that could be trimmed as an alternative course of action.
Leadership is about making tough choices. The President has failed to lead, which is why the country has racked up almost $4 trillion in additional debt since he took office. We don’t have to default on our debt obligations. We don’t have to cut Social Security. Instead, to my utter astonishment and dismay, President Obama has gone straight for the jugular. He went right for our senior citizens... right to our most vulnerable.
