This is what the 1% have been waiting for. This is why the bankers and well-connected have been strangling the money supply for the past 4 years and holding the economy hostage every time there is an expiration of their tax rates. They need for us to feel enough pain so that we will give up something that is very important to us.
It has never been about the deficit. It has always been about weakening and then eliminating the social insurance programs and using the chained CPI to calculate Social Security benefits is their first blow. Don’t let them get away with it without a fight.
Say “NO!” to the Chained CPI. But don’t just stop there. I’ve always believed that you shouldn’t oppose a law or proposal without a working counter proposal. Don’t just complain. So, tell your elected officials that you would like to strengthen Social Security by raising the payroll tax on higher income earners.
Here’s who to call:
We didn’t share in the prosperity, why should we share in the austerity?
Spread the word!
