Tell President Obama:Don’t cut Social Security, Defend it!
January 22, 2011 at 9:13 am
Widespread media reports indicate that President Obama is considering announcing at the State of the Union speech on Tuesday that he is willing to cut, or to accept cuts to, Social Security.
Such an announcement would be breathtakingly misguided. And it would only feed into the hysteria and misinformation that already exists about Social Security.
But fortunately there are indications that President Obama hasn’t yet made up his mind on this issue. So we are joining our friends at MoveOn and a host of other progressive organizations in urging anyone who supports Social Security to speak out before it’s too late.
I just signed a petition calling on President Obama to defend Social Security, not cut it. You should do the same. Click below to take action.
