Today is National Social Security Call-In Day. Call your Senators today to tell them not to touch it, please. Via Campaign for America's Future:
The following is from the Strengthen Social Security coalition, of which Campaign for America's Future is part:
We need you to call your Senators and demand that they vote for the Sanders/Reid Social Security Protection Amendment.
Senator Sanders and Majority Leader Reid are leading the fight in the Senate to protect Social Security from drastic cuts.
Their amendment simply says:
Social Security benefits for current and future beneficiaries should not be cut and Social Security should not be privatized as part of any legislation to reduce the Federal deficit.
Call your Senators RIGHT NOW at 1-866-251-4044. You’ll be given a choice of which of your state’s two senators to be connected with. Call BOTH of your senators if you have the time. It only takes a minute each.
Tell the person who answers the phone:
- I am a voter/constituent living in [your state]. I am calling to tell the Senator:
- I oppose all cuts to Social Security and
- I urge them to vote yes on the Sanders/Reid Social Security Protection Amendment.
- Please take the time for this very important effort today. This is for all of us who depend on Social Security.
Call Today: 1-866-251-4044.
AFTER YOU CALL:
Stay involved, the threat to Social Security continues. Please click to stay involved in the fight.
With the Tea Party right and Boehner pushing for more budget cuts and are in talks with Daley, how safe do you think Social Security is going to be?
