Campaign Time Is Special

The Democratic president upset many core supporters in July when he considered changing how [Social Security] funds are linked to inflation during acrimonious negotiations with Republicans over raising the U.S. debt ceiling.

Obama saw the change as a way to ensure the federal program remains viable for future generations, but liberals felt he was giving up too much ground to Republicans.

White House spokesman Amy Brundage said Obama's suggestions on how Congress can get to a $1.2 trillion deficit-reduction target, to be unveiled on Monday, "will not include any changes to Social Security."

Raw Story

That comes after he's re-elected.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
