Obama Destroys Social Security

by All Politics are Local Saturday, Dec. 18, 2010 at 3:31 AM

Democrat Obama, with the support of 138 Republicans and 139 Democrats in the House, for a vote of 277 to 148 on HR 4853, Roll Call 647, and a vote of 87 to 19 in the Senate, Roll Call vote 276, won passage of his tax cuts for the rich bill, destroying Social Security by cutting the payroll tax for Social Security by 2%, which will not be restored in 2012, an election year, when the cut is due to expire.

This effectively ends the Democratic Party, which is the capitalist party that only exists to make sure you never vote Red or Green. They do not even bother making sure about that anymore. The vote is at

Pelosi, as Speaker, does not vote; this millionaire is a big supporter of this bill, as is millionaire Obama. No worker has any business voting for any millionaire as they cannot represent us. The workingclass is the 80% of us who sell our labor for less than ,000 a year.

Here is a good analysis of this bill from the World Socialist Website,

"Congressional Democrats ensure passage of Obama’s deal to extend tax cuts for the rich" By Tom Eley, 14 December 2010

at http://www.wsws.org/articles/2010/dec2010/dems-d14.shtml

THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN HAS STARTED. The Democrats must have the black vote to win and they lost that in November 2010's congressional races. With legislation like this, and all of his blood for oil wars and fascism at home, Obama could easily loose all 50 states. Reds and Greens cannot win the presidency but we can certainly win lots of local offices, building a strong base for winning governor's races, House of Representative races, US Senate races and the presidency. The presidential election is simply a referendum on the economy and the economy is much worse since Obama took office, and everything he does makes it worse. An incumbent is usually tossed out of office if he or she does not deliver the goods and services to the workingclass, and this is certainly true of Obama. He only got 52% of the vote in 2008.

Please support socialist and Green candidates in your area. See
