This morning the Social Security Administration announced that the Social Security Cost Of Living Adjustment (COLA) for 2013 will be 1.7%.

We need your voice to stop those who want to CUT the COLA.
The adjustment applies to the monthly payments received by the more than 56 million seniors, people with disabilities, spouses, divorced spouses, surviving spouses, children, and others.
Medical costs rose 4.3% this year, and with other costs going up rapidly the 2013 COLA is not keeping up with the costs faced by millions of those relying on Social Security.
That is why it is stunning that RIGHT NOW there are discussions in DC about cutting future COLA. This would break faith with today's seniors and people of all ages.
We need your voice to stop them.
Social Security Works has joined with Senator Bernie Sanders and SignOn.org because we need an army of Americans to stand strong against this assault by Wall Street on our foundational systems. Organized people can and will defeat organized money, we just need to turn up the volume.
We can stop them. But we have to act now. Click here to add your voice.
We aren’t going to stop those who want to slash millions of Americans’ earned benefits to pay for tax cuts for billionaires with a petition alone. This petition is the first step in a campaign to make sure that every single member of Congress hears directly from their bosses; the American people.

Editorial : Remember Romney/Ryan want to do away with the Social Security System as you and I know it ! Vote like your life depended on it, and it does !
