On June 5, 2007, Obama gave a speech at Hampton University where he accused the Bush administration of not caring about the people of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, based on New Orleans not being exempt from the Stafford Act as New York City and Florida had been exempted after disasters. Two weeks earlier that very exemption was granted in an 80-14 vote in the Senate. Not only did Obama vote on it, he was one of the 14 that voted AGAINST giving New Orleans the waiver. So when he gave the speech on June 5th, he was telling a premeditated, bald-faced lie. That Obama would lie to terrorize seniors is of no surprise to me.

Let's expose presidential prevarication. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama warned that Social Security checks will be delayed if Congress fails to increase the government's borrowing authority by raising the debt ceiling. However, there's an issue with this warning. According to the 2012 Social Security trustees report, assets in Social Security's trust funds totaled $2.7 trillion, and Social Security expenditures totaled $773 billion. Therefore, regardless of what Congress does about the debt limit, Social Security recipients are guaranteed their checks. Just take the money from the $2.7 trillion assets held in trust.

Which is the lie, Social Security checks must be...
