Breaking: President Obama Will NOT Cut Social Security

As reported earlier on the blog, President Obama's poll numbers on Social Security are all time low, because Americans believe he'd side with the republicans and cut Social Security and raise retirement age.

It turns out that Obama will NOT cut Social Security or raise the retirement age. It is widely expected that President will make his stance on the issue clear on the State of the Union Address tomorrow. So make you watch President himself delivering the address, not the Fox News' opinion on what President Obama said!

Here's what others had to say about this:
"Ultimately, the president demonstrating to the American people and to the Republicans a willingness to fight and win on issues that are core issues for him will help him in the negotiating process by strengthening his hand and strengthening the resolve of people who are working with him. I think we both look forward to a bipartisan process going forward in the next two years, but we also look forward to the president showing strong leadership on critical issues and being willing to stand and fight on points where he feels that's in the best interest of the nation." - Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.)
"I was very pleased to see in the media this afternoon Obama will not endorse raising the retirement age or reducing Social Security benefits. For tens of millions of American workers and senior citizens, that is very welcome news. I applaud the president for standing up for Social Security, for his understand that this is a program that has worked fantastically well for 75 years and that he is going to defend it." - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
