White House: “Okay, Time To Buy Some More Support for Obamacare”

From The Hill,

President Barack Obama proposed giving payments of $250 to more than 50 million retired Americans who won’t get an increase in their Social Security checks next year…

“Even as we seek to bring about recovery, we must act on behalf of those hardest hit by this recession,” Obama said…

Obama’s proposal will cost $13 billion, the White House said.  A senior administration official said that the president won’t insist that the proposal is paid for, but Obama will insist that the payments don’t affect Social Security’s solvency.
