Republicans Are At It Again
The Deficit Commission is the most dangerous threat Social Security has ever faced. Republicans stacked the bipartisan commission with right-wingers who’ve spent their careers trying to kill Social Security — and Congress has promised to fast-track the Commission’s recommendations.
These right-wingers are spreading the same myths they did during George Bush’s privatization scheme, saying Social Security is in crisis, it’s going bankrupt, and it’s adding to the deficit.
They were lying then and they’re lying now.
Social Security works and has worked for 75 years. Right now, the Social Security Trust Fund has a surplus of over $2.5 trillion. That surplus is projected to grow to $4.3 trillion by 2023.
Republicans are spreading lies about Social Security and it’s up to us to stop them. Join us in standing strong for Social Security — no cuts, no raising the retirement age. Sign our pledge today and send a clear message to Congress and candidates for Congress — Hands off Social Security.
Hands off Social Security — Join us and sign the pledge right now.
In 2005, I had the great honor of working with DFA members across the country to beat back Republicans and help save Social Security. But Republicans in Washington never change and Social Security is under attack again.
These right-wing Republicans on the Deficit Commission have pulled out the old Bush playbook. They’re working to end Social Security as we know it — cutting benefits and raising the retirement age all in the name of “deficit reduction.”
To that, we say not just “no” but “Hell No!”
Add your name and tell Congress “Hand Off Social Security.”
We’re not pulling any punches in our campaign to save Social Security. We’re organizing DFA members across the country to sign the pledge, call Congress, and knock on doors to organize their friends and neighbors. We’ll do whatever it takes to keep right-wing Republicans and Corporate Democrats from ending Social Security as we know it.
Thank you for everything you do.
