Politicians under unprecedented pressure to act to cut benefits and raise taxes as doomsday looms closer than expected.
Our Social Security Protection Amendment to the U. S. Constitution will end their abuse of Social Security and STOP Benefit Cuts!
In 2014, over 35,000 Senior Americans have signed our Petitions to fight the Big Spenders on Capitol Hill, who are BANKRUPTING Social Security. It’s a tough fight, against a Congress that keeps spending but refuses to fix Social Security. And now we’re fighting for a Constitutional Amendment to protect Social Security and our benefits for all time. But this time we’re in the fight of our lives and we need just about everyone I can reach to join in.
Because the Amendment’s first provision is first on our minds and in our pocketbooks: It will stop any proposed Social Security benefit cuts now and in the future.
The 113th Congress will continue a reckless program of overspending, “raiding” the Trust Fund, and leaving only paper IOUs.
- Per the President’s Deficit Commission recommendation, some Congress members are circulating legislation that would cut or eliminate Social Security COLAs, raise the retirement age, and raise taxes!
- There’s growing conviction that Social Security “reform” will be pushed again this year, and that a “grand bipartisan” compromise could result in significant benefit cuts and tax increases or both.
I believe that this bit of political intelligence going around Washington is the single biggest and most credible threat to our benefits I’ve heard!
- Social Security benefits are not guaranteed. It’s a fact. The Supreme Court has ruled that Social Security benefits are legally THE SAME as welfare or a pork barrel projects or any other federal spending program.
Remember – this Congress will be looking for a way to reduce expenses, all the while continuing to spend. But it’s our job to send them a message, just as important to the country, and even more important to us. And our message is simple:
Senior Citizens deserve maximum protection – A “Social Security Protection Amendment” to the U.S. Constitution
*** No Benefit Cuts. Current Social Security and Medicare levels will be GUARANTEED by law – and EXEMPT from CUTS!
*** A Guaranteed Fair COLA. The Social Security Cost of Living Adjustment will be fair and accurate and GUARANTEED BY LAW!
*** An End to the Trust Fund “Raids”. Congress should STOP BORROWING from the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for wasteful pork barrel projects.
*** And Pay Back Social Security IOUs NOW. The Trust Fund is full of IOUs that have no real cash value and only represent a promise to pay. Congress must repay the more than $3.87 Trillion it has raided from the Social Security Trust Fund. This Amendment provides permanent protection for your Social Security benefits and puts the brakes on Congress’ out of control spending.
