If you still harbored the tiniest of doubts. From AmericaBlog:
Here’s President Obama talking with Steve Inskeep of NPR. The interview was posted Friday, December 10, 2010.
About Social Security, Obama said:
INSKEEP: Won’t Republicans argue — and, in fact, won’t reality argue that any cuts will have to be even deeper because this package that you’re pushing for now will mean there’s even less government revenue?
OBAMA: Actually, I think that if you talk to economists, both conservative and liberal, what they’ll say is the problem is not next year. The problem is, how are we dealing with our medium-term debt and deficit, and how are we dealing with our long-term debt and deficit? And most of that has to do with entitlements, particularly Social Security and Medicaid.
