Obama turns to his bipartisan deficit commission’s blueprint for reducing debt
washingtonpost.com — Washington Post Reporters Lori Montgomery and Zachary A. Goldfarb quoted Campaign for America's Future's co-director Roger Hickey in a story on President Obama's speech on the 2012 budget. They wrote:
"One liberal group, the Campaign for America’s Future, began mobilizing Monday to ramp up pressure on the White House in advance of Obama’s speech.
"The group sent an e-mail alert asking its members to contact the White House and warn against cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
"Roger Hickey, co-director of group, said many on the left “fear” that Obama will try to find a middle ground with Ryan — eliminating the Democrats’ ability to present themselves as the saviors of Social Security."
