Your answer doesn’t make sense. Cuts in social security won’t make the 1% richer. Nor will they reduce the deficit. So what’s Obama’s motivation? Even if he just really believes Social Security benefits are too high, it makes no sense to propose cuts in the context of budget negotiations, since these cuts won’t affect the budget.
So, I’m still confused about why he’s proposing this.
