No, We Won't 'Get Over It'
Right now, Wall Street executives and CEOs of major U.S. corporations are making 300 times more than the typical worker. This data comes just as we learn that there will be no cost of living adjustment (or COLA) in 2016, leaving retirees, surviving spouses, and people with disabilities behind.
Tell Congress that Americans deserve a raise and they can start by expanding, not cutting Social Security!
When Ohio Governor and Republican presidential candidate John Kasich recently told an audience in New Hampshire that they would “get over” cuts to their Social Security checks, he was echoing the “you’re on your own” mentality of so many on Wall Street and in Washington.
We are not on our own and we won’t “get over it!” Together we’re changing the conversation in Washington away from cuts and toward expansion.
