Save social security
Sign the petition: "Congress should reject cuts to Social Security and instead make
the 1% pay their share."
For four months the congressional "Super Committee" has been meeting behind closed
doors to hash out ways to reduce the deficit.
A report in The New York Times this week suggests that
the committee is close to recommending
mandatory cuts to Social Security instead of tax increases for the richest one percent.
No way we can let this happen. This is a rotten deal that we have to stop.
The committee issues their report to Congress in one week. We are collecting petition
signatures that we will deliver on Monday.
Our goal is to send a message that cuts to Social Security come with hell to pay
tell Congress to reject any new cuts to Social Security.
After you sign please take a minute to forward this email to friends, family, and
co-workers so they know about the mandatory cuts that could be coming. Ask them to
We have seven days to put the brakes on the Super Committee's report and kill this
Here is how a news story described the cuts recently:
"Just as 55 million Social Security recipients are about to get their first benefit
increase in three years, Congress is looking at reducing future raises by adopting
a new measure of inflation that also would increase taxes for most families. Those
with low incomes would be hit hardest.
Conservatives have never liked Social Security. Those monthly checks prove that government
can be a force for good in the lives of Americans.
And let's be clear what the anti-tax stuff is all about-the rich and big companies
don't want to pay their fair share.
They've deployed their lobbyists to push for cuts to Social Security so they don't
have to pay more in taxes.
We urgently need to send Congress a message that cuts to Social Security are OFF
the table. Please sign and recruit other people to sign.
