Obama Pledges Reform of Social Security, Medicare Programs

By Michael D. Shear
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, January 16, 2009


President-elect Barack Obama pledged yesterday to shape a new Social Security and Medicare "bargain" with the American people, saying that the nation's long-term economic recovery cannot be attained unless the government finally gets control over its most costly entitlement programs.

Erskine Bowles, Alan Simpson to Lead Obama's Deficit Commission

President Obama on Thursday will sign an executive order establishing the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform (previously known as the deficit commission). He will also announce the commission's co-chairs, according to a senior administration official, CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller reports.

The president will appoint former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles and former Republican Senate Whip Alan Simpson will serve as co-chairs, a senior official confirms to CBS News.

Conyers on Jobs: Weve Had It. Lays Out Obama, Calls for Protest at White House

[In 1987] We passed the first bill that allowed the government in areas of high unemployment to directly intervene and create jobs. Well, weve got the bill in here again and Ive got nothing from the White House, John Conyers

At a press conference held by members of the House Out of Poverty Caucus Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich), the second most senior member of the U.S. House, was pointed in his criticism of the White House regarding jobs and cuts to Social Security the President put on the table last week.

Weve got to educate the American people at the same time we educate the President of the United States. The Republicans, Speaker Boehner or Majority Leader Cantor did not call for Social Security cuts in the budget deal. The President of the United States called for that, Conyers, who has served in the House since 1965, said. My response to him is to mass thousands of people in front of the White House to protest this, Conyers said strongly.

.......

I was the first member of Congress to come out for the 44th President. Weve got to march on him. Hell be before the Congressional Black Caucus on September 21st. Conyers said referring to the annual CBC Gala. The President has addressed the gala each year hes been in office.
