What are additional adjustments? by Dr. Krauthammer, op-ed

Obama's own budget projections show staggering budget deficits going out to 2019. If he knows his social agenda is going to drown us in debt, what's he up to?

He has an idea. But he dare not speak of it yet. He has only hinted. When asked in his March 24 news conference about the huge debt he's incurring, Obama spoke vaguely of "additional adjustments" that will be unfolding in future budgets.


Rarely have two more anodyne words carried such import. "Additional adjustments" equals major cuts in Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid.

  • Obama sure seems to be fond of "two word" phrases.....HOPE and CHANGE immediately come to mind...and they are carrying a lot of negative weight!

    2 words=bush Iraq

    And, we all new that those cuts would be coming down the line as the population ages. Those who haven't realized it are living in a box.
