Obama’s Threat to Cut Off Social Security Payments Is a Lie


It’s not easy for a Marxist saboteur to constantly hit new lows, but Obama manages — most recently by trying to terrify seniors with the suggestion that Social Security payments won’t go out unless Republicans agree to raise the debt ceiling effectively to infinity, ensuring total economic collapse not far down the road. Here‘s what his Fabian communist accomplices in the “mainstream” media won’t tell you:

If Washington receives about $200 billion in monthly revenues and sends out roughly $50 billion worth of Social Security checks and the same amount of Medicare payments, why is Obama claiming the checks may not go out?

Isn’t $200 billion minus $100 billion still $100 billion?

Because Obama is playing the demogogue, that’s why. Pure and simple. He is trying to scare seniors into making panicked calls to their congressmen begging them to do whatever Obama and the Democrats want in order to keep the checks coming.

This is demogoguery of the worst sort because Obama has to know that what he is saying is false. When you and I say something we know to be false, it’s called a “lie.”

Likewise, any so-called journalists who let this lie pass are also liars.

The willingness of Obama to use the threat of withholding Social Security as a weapon demonstrates why the federal government is the last entity a sane person would trust to hold his retirement funds.
