Nobody likes it, but entitlements have to be cut. They are out of control. Both sides need to man up and cut them together, and take the heat for it together.

Obama is just as spineless, and just as much of an anti-patriot in this situation as the Republicans are.

Both sides screwed this up, both need to fix it, and both need to take the blame. And in the end if everything is successful, they both can take credit for it.
Social Security is paid for. Should be off the table entirely. Everybody paid their money in. They shouldn't have to be 72 to put in for it. Medicare is only on the table because Bush added to the program without paying for it. The defense budget is 40% of world spending. We are essentially in an arms race with ourselves. Spending cuts should start there.
