Hands Off Social Security !

Politicians ~ Keep Your Hands Off of Social Security !

Congratulations! We slammed the phones on Capitol Hill yesterday thanks to your help. In fact, we overloaded the Capitol Switchboard and the phones went down.

Tens of thousands delivered the message: "Hands Off Our Social Security!" Members of Congress even called our offices and those of our allies to say that they were hearing the calls loud and clear. The Fiscal Commission was supposed to vote today on a plan to slash Social Security benefits. But they’re still trying to round up the votes. The vote is now scheduled for Friday, and many members of the Commission are undecided.

So you have time to call your U.S. Senators TODAY and THURSDAY to make your voice heard.
Please call 1-866-529-7630 now.

We know many of you called yesterday but could not get through to the offices because the switchboards were jammed. So please try again TODAY.

Call 1-866-529-7630 right now. There will be less phone traffic today, which should allow you to get through.

We can beat these guys. That’s why we will continue fighting all week against the Fiscal Commission. They released their new proposal for slashing Social Security benefits this morning. Once again it disregards the will of the American people. Their plan will raise the retirement age to 69, cut the annual COLA, and cut benefits overall for middle-income earners by 17% to 36%.

It`s YOUR Money ! Tell them to back off on Social Security ~
