Obama is certainly carrying out the Liberal manifesto of bribing people to buy their votes. And the best part is, the liberals dont have to pay for their bribes! Just take that money from the successful people and use it to buy the votes of the poor and elderly.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama called on Congress Wednesday to approve $250 payments to more than 50 million seniors to make up for no increase in Social Security next year.

Obama said he would not allow the payments to come out of the Social Security trust funds, further eroding the finances of the retirement program. Social Security already is projected to pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes in each of the next two years.

However, Obama did not offer any alternatives to finance the payments. A senior administration official said Obama was open to borrowing the money, increasing the federal budget deficit.
