Battlelines Being Drawn: Obama Backs Off Social Security Cuts

This is good. As so many commentators on the left point out, social programs are popular. Democrats should support them. Duh.

The big worry was that Barack Obama would forget that a Grand Bargain was never possible and still include some Social Security cut in his 2015 budget proposal.

White House officials announced today that said budget will not include any cuts to Social Security or cuts to any other benefit programs, apparently.

Bullet officially dodged. Now, Democrats, go out there and run on popular social issues, run on all of them! Loudly! You could win!

Hope they make at least a halfhearted effort.
