Apparently he is. And it’s not just me saying it. From across the political spectrum, there has been widespread condemnation of the way the White House is using Social Security checks as a weapon in President Obama’s budget battles with the congressional Republicans.
"I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue [increasing the debt ceiling]. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it," President Obama said in a recent interview with Scott Pelley of CBS News.
