Obama: I May Not Send Out Social Security Checks If I Don’t Get to Raise Taxes

Obama told CBS today that he can’t guarantee that social security checks will be mailed out if he doesn’t get his way.


From the video:

President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.

Obama and democrats want to raise taxes to pay off his historic debt.

    Obama = Liar. No nice way to say it.

    But what can one expect from one, who has the qualifications of a junior T-Ball coach running the country.

  • apodoca

    If the checks don’t go out it will be because Obama has deliberately intervened to stop a process that continues even in the face of a government shutdown.

    He’d go nuclear and hurt millions of elderly and disable people rather than reduce government spending.

    Raw partisan politics.

    Whose checks does he bring up first? Veterans.

    PURE. EVIL!

  • Redwine

    Barry is a bold-faced liar. Social security and veterans checks – all entitlements – are not affected by the debt limit talks. Those checks will go out.

  • Mikey

    Watch the spoiled little man child’s face turn blue and stomp his feet. If I don’t get what I want – YOU WILL PAY you Social Security recipients. No checks for you. Is there nothing this guy won’t do to push his agenda through? He truly is sickening.

    This is pure rhetoric to scare the elderly, think about it. The POTUS and democrats did the same-thing with Ryan’s medicare bill. They are looking to ramp up the angst in the electorate. Seniors are a guaranteed voting block and are willing to have their voices heard.

    Also, I believe that this POS WOULD HURT THE ELDERLY, that’s what kind of immoral individual is in this White House.

    “Obama and democrats want to raise taxes to pay off his historic debt.”

    You are wrong. He has no intention of paying the debt.

  • LHY

    Obama is a liar:
    http://www.zerohedge.com/article/fearmongering-top-begins-obama-says-can-not-guarantee-social-security-payments-without-debt-

    Is that so Mr. President? Please explain then how according to the most recent DTS the YTD (fiscal) amount paid out on Social Security is $469 billion, well below the amount collected from Federal Tax Deposits of $780 billion.
    .
    .
    .
    So please Mr. President, feel free to engage in your hollow rhetoric when addressing your political adversaries or staring at the teleprompter, but please don’t pander to the general population. It didn’t work for Hank Paulson, at least not the first time. We all know what happened with your all important stock market after that.

    Mark my words he does not want a deal because of the “emergency powers” he’ll gain to ignite his radical base and spark his communist “revolution”…

    He’ll go after student loans and grants, food stamps, welfare checks, medicaid funds and federal government employee pension payments.

    This is the “perfect crisis” to use to seize power just as he has always intended to do…

  • shibumi

    People who are on Social Security have earned that money. They have paid into it. They are former workers.

    However, those on welfare have not earned any of their obamacash. They are not worker, they are there for a handout only.

    Interesting that Obama is targeting working seniors and not those sucking off the government [email protected]

    Of course he would, Average American. He’s the one who called his own grandmother a “typical white person.” He didn’t bring his daughters to see her before she died. He used her as an example of medical care wasted on an old person who was probably going to die anyway. He skipped her funeral, and then some time later had a sort of “service” where he and his wife and daughters threw her ashes into the sea.

  • Redwine

    Alana (#30) – I think that something else happened to Barry Liar’s grandmother. One day there will be an investigation.

  • Marmo the Greater

    Just from a logistics standpoint, this appears to be an empty threat. A very evil and insidious threat. If he were somehow able to stop the wheels already in motion that produce and mails or electronically deposits SS checks, they would still be owed and required to be sent out after whatever delay he causes. But then would the government owe interest on the checks? I think the IT effort alone would prohibit anything like this from happening.

    Not even mentioning the fact that SS still has the funds to pay, if I understand correctly.

    Republicans leaders need to nail the terrorist in chief hard on this. Obummer is evil. Pure evil.

  • Bil Thomas

    So what the President is saying is that there is no money in the SS trust fund and that it has to be borrowed to be paid.

    Cut off the tens of millions of young people with “mental disabilities” ei; depression, anxiety attacks, bipolar or the dozens of other “deseases” that these lazy scumbags and their greedy lawyers and mental doctors are stealing from the social security system. The brunt of the baby boomers have yet to retire. The system is already insolvent. It is mathamatically impossable that it will be able to absorb the boomers which will reach retirement age within the next 15 years without raising social security tax rates to 50% of all income.

  • Redwine

    Barry Liar is desperate to raise money for his massive vote-buying, America-destroying slush fund.

  • Bobbi

    Quote from CNN: “During the last major shutdown, which lasted about a month starting in late 1995, the Social Security Administration mailed checks throughout the crisis, and a close reading of established law makes clear the agency has the legal authority to do so again.

    “I am absolutely sure the checks would be sent out,” said John F. Cooney, a partner at law firm Venable who designed shutdown plans for the government while employed at the Office of Management and Budget.

    Robert Reischauer, president of the Urban Institute and a trustee of the Social Security and Medicare trust funds, backed that view, saying claims that benefits won’t be paid are “not true.”

    The legal case is pretty clear. In 1995, President Clinton’s lawyers in the Department of Justice laid out how federal agencies should operate if Congress failed to appropriate funds.”

    This is a brilliant example of BO’s use of the “bully pulpit”. This should be named “The Obama Doctrine”.

    During the upcoming presidential election, when Palin is asked about “The Obama Doctrine” (as she was asked about the Bush Doctrine in the last election), she can point to this scintillating example of Hope and Change. What other chief executive threatens to crash the stock market, cause a worldwide economic crash, threaten harm to the elderly and withhold wages from the military? All as a negotiating tactic?

    This is shameful! Those people who voted for this childish, lying empty suit should hang their heads.

    Since the Social Security trust funds are part of the national debt, what Obama is threatening is to default on those United States residents who have paid into these trusts before defaulting on private holders of bonds or cutting federal spending.

    And Dick in Chief, have you figured out exactly how you will stop these automated programs without crashing the entire system? Lots of Luck, Obamie!

  • Bobbi

    I’m sure Timmy is getting his talking points from poker player bluff Obama. Timmy Saud the same thing in April. “The United States has reached its debt limit three times in the past thirty years and not only did economic Armageddon never materialize, but not a single Social Security check was late. First in 1985, then in 1995, and then again in 2002, Congress failed to raise the debt ceiling for months after the limit was reached. Contra Geithner, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security payments were all made. No interest payments were missed. The world economy did not collapse. Nothing that Geithner warned about came true.
    That is not to say that none of those things could happen. In August 1996, the Government Accountability Office produced a report on the legality of steps taken by then Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin during the 1995-1996 debt ceiling showdown.
    Among other actions, Rubin delayed reinvesting interest payments from government employee trust funds into new Treasury securities, redeemed some pension trust fund bonds early, and even recalled cash balances Treasury had parked at some large banks. The GAO found that all of these actions were perfectly legal.
    The GAO reports highlights the tremendous discretion Secretary Geithner has over how and when the federal government pays what bills. So the only reason June (august now) Social Security checks might not go out, as Geithner warned they might not, is if Geithner chose not to send them.”

    From Redwine’s #46 excellent link:

    Maybe we fiscal conservatives should not let this crisis go to waste. Now could be a great time to get rid of the Departments of Education and Energy and virtually eliminate their budgets. Now could be a great time to throttle back on the intrusive police powers of the DEA and BATF. Now could be a great time to get the federal government out of market manipulation in housing and other “commerce”, and end a lot of crony capitalism and corruption by taking some piggy banks away from bureaucrats.

    The trouble is that the decisions on where to cut would come from the Treasury Secretary and ultimately President Obama. At least that is how I understand the process, which is fraught with legal and constitutional uncertainties.

    That is, the real danger is not in the debt ceiling itself, but in giving Obama the power to cut $1.1 trillion however he pleases. Obama could very well decide to not make interest payments, thus defaulting. He could decide to not pay our military men and women. He could decide to short-change seniors dependent on government pensions. In short, he probably could bring about financial Armageddon with a few strokes of his autopen.

    =========
    Republicans need to get out there – every day – and tell Americans the truth (Bachmann tried her best yesterday on O’Reilly’s show, but he kept interrupting her, of course).

    This is BO’s choice: He can either allow a positive – long overdue – outcome from this crisis or take us all straight to hell.

    Shout it out, if you must — even in that lying ba$tard’s face: “You decide, Barry. Is it restoration of America’s greatness or that revolution you’ve wanted all your sorry life?”

  • owl

    Somebody that has the GOP ear, had better get ALL our elected side out on the steps of Congress to declare him a liar. Or at least say it is not true.

    NOTHING, nothing, nothing less will do the trick this time. They need to call a HUGE press conference and say that if the checks do not go………………..it is because Obama (himself) told them to hold the checks up. CALL HIS NAME.

    Obama saying this is the NUKE option. They needed to be out there TODAY. They need to NOT go back to the WH. Many, many old people are going to be bombarded with MSM scaring them to death. They have got to grow some NOW and point their damn fingers back at him.

    Is there any one of them that can actually TALK? Not that gentle insider chit I hear.

    (CBS News) — President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

    “I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.

    Mr. Obama told Pelley “this is not just a matter of Social Security checks. These are veterans checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out.”

    Well, as SCOTUS has previously ruled, SS recipients have no legal right to payments and neither do soldiers or the unemployed, so the people who have legal contracts, like bondholders and government contractors, get paid first and then everyone else gets to fight over what’s left. That’s not fearmongering, that’s the law.

    It’s almost time to take up arms for Liberty again! Dust off your patriot hat.. people. Our founders are calling.

    I say Let’s cut their pay 1st cause the tax payers are tired of the rich getting richer while they screw the poor. High prices of everything and now the old,the disabled,The veterans,The Handicap people has to sit and worry all month if they will be able to pay their bills,get their meds or even put food on their tables. I didn’t vote for this sorry of a man but most of you all did.Obama said he wanted change and you people wanted change but none of you asked him what kind of change.Well I guess most everyone is going to get what they voted for.SAD and Ashame he should be.

  • Bert

    And here I thought it was the Republicans who were going to hurt the seniors! The POTUS has resorted to hostage taking. Impeach now!

  • redpillpatriot

    #110Angel Who exactly are you addressing? This is not the Huffington post… We did not vote for Barry! I was awake when GWB was screwing the country! I wanted a conservative! I did not want either of the P!ss Poor Choices we had to vote for! So please don’t lump me into the brain dead Obama voters!

    One other note, When you depend on the GOVT you get screwed ever time!!!!!

    We need to go to Washington and surround the capitol (and white house) and tar and feather every last one of them!

  • Cracker Mike

    Obama is bluffing. My mom’s 84 and she remembers that the only 2 years in which social security recipients didn’t receive cost of living increases were Obama’s first 2 years in power. This will BACKFIRE on Obama big time. HE will get the blame, NOT the Republicans, regardless of the media propaganda.

    Anybody who thought the fica taxes were going into a “lock box” must have been living on a differnt planet. The government has been spending out of control since WWII. I am in my 50’s and it has been common knowlege that the government has been raiding everything taken in “plus” since at least the 70’s and leaving an iou in the moneys place. End the treasury bond sales forever. Direct the US treasury to print our money. Why pay the foriegn owned “Fedral Reserve Bank” to print money out of thin air and charge us intrest for the privilage.. Lincoln told these same people to go to he!! and directed the treasury to print its own fiat. Remove all fedral reserve notes and replace them with Treasury Bills now. Tell the international bankers to get out of the US just like president Jackson did.. Someone needs to grow a pair.

    Gus: 3 things

    1. No, Treasury does not simply get carte blanche to ignore it’s legal obligations because Congress forced it to ignore its statutory ones.
    2. Why would you ever think that the President having complete control over outlays would be preferable to a debt deal?
    3. SCOTUS ruling: Fleming v. Nestor (1960) “It is apparent that the non-contractual interest of an employee covered by the [Social Security] Act cannot be soundly analogized to that of the holder of an annuity, whose right to benefits is bottomed on his contractual premium payments.”

    I need to learn something? lol, you just got schooled, dude.

    Obama has to send money to his Muslim brothers and fund the cartels in Mexico, the old folks who paid for their social security, eh, let them eat cake.

    “Obama and democrats want to raise taxes to pay off his historic debt.”

    “Obama and democrats want to raise taxes to pay for more of their progressive spending, as there’s simply not enough money in the coffers to do it. The retirees are held hostage for ransom to achieve his audacity of hope to fulfil his socialist agenda, tax-and-spent and wealth distribution and bigger government.

    Listened to Jamie A on the radio this morning about Obama holding seniors hostage…..

    next thing we’ll see is Pres. Obama holding a gun (or IMO, we’ll see a Mexican drug lord doing it with an ak47 with a “exported by Holder” or something like that) to the head of a senior citizen.. and Pres. Obama will be saying “Raise the debt ceiling or the old lady gets it!”

  • Disabled

    I don’t understand why we won’t get our checks when his wife and children just went on a safari in Africa.This was a waste of money and how many other ways is it wasted.Obama will lose a lot of votes because of this.We will have no money if we don’t get our checks how will we pay our bills? This is very upsetting :( We payed into this money was taken from our checks so we would have this !

    Oblowme strikes again against the weakest of Americans. Let’s make sure this bum is out of office in 2012. His kind of “change” is killing us all. He is definitely the biggest POS I’ve ever seen in my life.

  • nonaurbeeswax

    Barry is just juggling for the powers that be. and they be scared. Why they be scared. Unemployment reality is more like sixteen to twenty percent. They have all sold out to the Saudis and Big Business. They got their planes ready to leave the country. They got their part and parcels packed in the jet to go. It is just like when they said, if you don t give us the tarp money, then tomorrow their will be wild animals roving the streets, people will be dying from pestilence from the chem trails we have perfected. The constitution will be burnt on the white house steps. Martial law will be put into effect. We have control the horizontal. We have control of the vertical, for the next ten years we shall control your money, your cars, your homes, your children, we shall control all so sit back and enjoy for you have entered the Obama Limits. That is right Limits. Limits beyond the scope of his or any other presidents authority to rape, pillage and burn our country to the ground. Beyond limit to fund social security? To Fund Veterans checks who fought and died for our country? To fund disabled Americans who half of which would not be that way if you had not fluoridated our water. Poisoned us with aspartame. and now they want to give everybody vaccines and they got money for that because they are getting a kick back. and we are getting kicked in the back. and where is the dead body of Osoma bin Laden? There is not one. Why? Why because unscrupulous forces long working on the take over and coup de tet of this country have planted the perfect Manchurian Candidate. Come ON PEOPLE THE MAN S FAVORITE POLITICAL FIGURE IS MAO. Remember that happy smiling overweight fat Chinese fellow that killed over a hundred million of his own fellow comrades in arms. Watch out acorn he will turn on you to. Watch out democratic party he is going to cut up you Senators he does not likes passes to the underground bomb shelters. Watch out Amerika for if we do not immediately and forth with start impeaching this man he will create another false flag incident but this time it will be nuke on our own soil and he and the puppet masters will pull it off with Atomic clock time precision. Who? Who do think is in the White House? Would any natural born American every threaten grandma and grandpa and have them sell her diamond ring so they can eat Alpo? What kind of monster does away with health care that was just fine and replaces with something that pays for your drugs but pays no doctors bills or Hospital bills but to five thousand dollars and ten thousand for family and charges you over a hundred plus a month for the plan. This man is scum and drum beater. He has no law degree yet because the Saudis gave Harvard law review twenty million dollars his name got in the publication as one of the top legal minds in the nation. and he don t know squat cant pass the bar in his state. He has no legal birth certificate and he came from a foreign land and they killed the guy called Barrack Obama and replaced him with Osama bin Ladden. who oliver north said was the most evil man in the world. Look up Look up little children your redeemption draws nigh for I tell you this man is either the Anti Christ or one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Come Lord Jesus Come and save us from this scum. You can not pray for the Anti Christ. and this man has usurped the throne of the Western World do you think he is going to give it up. No NO, he is holding a big gun in the face of every American Black, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red and White and he don t care. Because you take away his notes and you take away his teleprompter and you got a trash talking gangster from the middle east that wants to eat your children for breakfast. IMPEACH IMPEACH.

    I know alot of people that would be homeless if Obama doesn’t send social Security and all military. If he breaks the constitution amendment and the law. Should he be arrested for that? Cause no one is above the law not ever Obama. So I say he should be arressted if he’s break the law and the constitution amendment 14 section 4.
