Obama on Social Security: a chronology

- by New Deal democrat

Regular nerdy economic blogging will resume shortly. For those of you who read us and also another blog currently running a bunch of articles about Social Security, here is a diary I wrote 3 years ago, in which I set forth in chronological order virtually every pronouncement Barack Obama made on Social Security between early 2007 and early 2010. His position changed almost instantaneously once he was elected in 2008 (in fact, the dairy includes a bunch of quotes from candidate Obama specifically saying he opposes cuts to Social Security, with citations).

Please do click on the link above, and feel free to call it to the attention of readers of that other blog. You hae my permission to republish it in full should you wish.
