President Obama has vowed to continue attempting to work with Republican lawmakers when it comes to Social Security and Medicare benefits…even at the cost of irritating many of his Democratic supporters.
Obama states, “Occasionally I may make some of you angry because I’m going to reach out to Republicans, and I’m going to keep on doing it,” he said. “Even if some of you think I’m a sap, I’m going to keep on doing it because that’s what I think the country needs.”
And that means drastic cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits…which is already making plenty of American citizens and retirees nervous.
David Axelrod, former senior advisor to President Obama has sat down with Rachel Maddows to discuss how these cuts could affect Obama’s support.
