Obama's on the campaign trail complaining about Romney's Medicare fix, yet Obama is raiding the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., which is the insurance which protects our pensions, which is already in debt.

Most people learn this in grade school, but a President himself doesn't pass a bill. Did you bother reading anything about this issue before you started whining? That's rhetorical question by the way.

Here's what a mature adult does. He or she takes 30 seconds to dig up information if they hadn't already read it in a major newspaper of their choice.

"In an unusual show of bipartisanship, members of both parties were on hand for the White House ceremony, including members of the administration, Congress, as well as state and local governments."

Obama signs bipartisan transportation, student loan bill - CNN.com

In summary, if by Obama doing this, you mean that the Republican House, Democratic Senate and Democratic President worked together to get this done then you would be correct. Try reading about things before you buy into some stupid op-ed in the future.

Obama does that to buy votes and figures he can just make tax payers bail that out later.

The man has no shame or brains.

Neither does someone who blames a bi-partisan bill on one guy. Put away your emotions and think.

That's the whole problem with Socialism. You have to grab from one group -- the group that worked for something it has to redistribute to another group that wants what the others have.

WOW - people read, then things are pointed out to them, and yet some continue to ignore the facts & just go on blaming Obama for EVERYTHING!!! This was BIPARTISAN folks! If you don't like it, fine. But don't just look at the Murdoch headline & blame one person.

The bagel place was out of onion bagels this morning. Obama's Fault!

The Congress passed the law. The President has no such authority. And it was the GOP controlled House of Representatives who adopted it and recommended it be signed. Your "facts" seem so very inaccurate. You might want to cite a more credible source for your information next time ... rather than a Op Ed piece written by an extremist.

Nice to see some other people who actually bother learning what they're talking about instead of making a stupid, emotional post. Good job you two.
