Obama And Social Security

With a Democrat Party president, why are we even worried that Social Security benefits will be cut and/or the retirement age raised? We're worried because bipartisan Obama might very well make another of his famous compromises with Republicans at the expense of seniors and future retirees of all ages. This, rather than raising the cap on Social Security payroll contributions, which is the only fix that is actually needed. Hopefully, there will be no call to slash benefits or raise the retirement age in the speech tonight. It's almost like we have a Republican president with wars, business types inhabiting the West Wing, and talk of cutting Social Security.
