Social Security A Solemn Promise ! Order Out Chaos

Don`t Cut Social Security & Medicare ! Make it Stronger !

Why should we/older Americans be made to sacrifice, when we did`nt borrow from Social Security, Politicians Did !

This morning President Obama announced his plan to reduce the federal deficit—and it did not contain a penny of cuts to Social Security. He also did not renew his offer to raise the Medicare eligibility age to 67. In the past several months, tens of thousands of you have joined this movement to deliver exactly that message—Social Security does not contribute a penny to the federal deficit, so don’t cut it.
Today’s announcement marks an important victory. It shows that when we work together to deliver the message that Social Security works for all Americans, we can win. But it also shows our vulnerabilities. The president’s plan still proposes steep cuts to Medicare – most of which, thankfully, will NOT come out of peoples’ benefits – and large cuts to Medicaid. And the powerful Supercommittee of 12 members of Congress has two months to put their deficit-reduction plan on the table. They are not bound by what the president proposed today. So we still have our work cut out for us in coming weeks. Despite these ongoing challenges, today you should feel good about all you have done. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
