Cutting Social Security ~ Bad Idea ! You Bet`cha !

Tell Your Elected Officials, Cutting Social Security...BAD IDEA !

This week Congress will vote on plans to reduce the national debt. As we know, Social Security has not contributed at all to the national debt. It is funded entirely by worker and employer contributions. The Social Security Trustees report that there is enough funding to pay full benefits through 2036. Yet, many in Congress want to cut Social Security benefits and the annual cost of living adjustments (COLA), without even considering an end to a decade of tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. It’s hard to believe that a COLA cut is under consideration in spite of the fact there hasn’t been a COLA in two years! If that isn’t bad enough, there are reports that Medicare and Medicaid could be scheduled for cuts as well. Please act today ! Congress may be voting as soon as this Wednesday, July 27, on debt legislation. Tell your U.S. Representatives and Senators that cutting Social Security in the name of debt reduction is a bad idea.
