Cut services, close offices and eliminate government jobs.
That's been the Republican Party's battle cry for decades, but when it comes to the Social Security Administration, it's the Obama administration that's doing all the above.
For more than a year now, the Social Security Administration has rather quietly been trying to shift the public from obtaining walk-in services at its field offices to the Internet.There's no question about why Social Security has cut back on service. Republicans in Congress are blocking adequate operating funds for the agency. But look who's getting the blame -- the Obama Administration. Who should the Obama Administration blame for this unfairness? Themselves for not screaming bloody murder about Social Security's inadequate operating budgets. The blame game has started and Republicans are ahead.
