John already responded to Mark Warner and his statement that his "bipartisan" Gang of Six" is going to "make everybody mad", as though it's some sort of badge of honor to stick it to seniors with changes to Social Security that include things like raising the retirement age instead of raising the cap on taxable income to keep it solvent well into the future and for pretending like Social Security adds one nickel to our deficit and somehow needs to be "fixed" just to appease Republicans.

Cenk Uygur was just as aggravated at Warner and I've got to say I share his sentiments here as to what the response should be to making cuts to Social Security.

People were asking for Warner's contact info in John's post since he just posted Durbin's there. Here's the list of all of them if anyone would like to express their displeasure to the Senators from their home states and let them know that you don't want them dismantling our social safety nets.
