Don't mess with Social Security
Remember the Bowles-Simpson plan?
It was the proposal–later rejected–from the co-chairs of the Fiscal Commission, which attempted to cut Social Security and Medicare while also cutting taxes for wealthy Americans. And guess what? Members of Congress are trying to bring it back right now. Just yesterday, Senator Lindsey Graham said he was working with a group of Senators to introduce legislation that would constitute a “mini-Bowles-Simpson.”
This is what we’ve been warning you about—tell your representatives in Washington that the Bowles-Simpson plan should stay dead, because our Social Security system needs to be expanded, not cut.
