If the cause is important, should I get over my antipathy for Daily Kos -- on just this one occasion? Yes. And you have no idea
how much it galls me to do so.
Please, I beg you -- go here and sign the petition
. Yes, it is a Kos petition. But it sends the right message, so do it anyways.
As part of the fiscal showdown negotiations, President Obama has proposed cutting Social Security for almost all current and future beneficiaries.
Social Security should not be a part of the negotiations. It does not contribute even $1 to the deficit, and according to even the most pessimistic projections it is 100% solvent for more than 20 years.
Send an email to the White House telling President Obama to immediately stop proposing any cuts to Social Security.
Better still would be for you to send a message directly to the White House
and to your congressional representative
. But let's not pretend that you'll do that.
Obama and Boehner are really close
on this chained CPI business. Only you can put a stop to it.
