Where is the best and LOUDEST place to shout our discontent to the President

regarding Social Security cuts.

I've seen a number of suggestions, but I want to go to the place where my voice would be most effective.

5. Since when does Congress have anything to do with passing legislation?

Why, the next foolish idea someone will come up with is figuring out how to re-take the House!

12. +1

Do some of the DUers who want to shout at the President even know where their congress critter stands?

If congress critter is a Republican, why leave them alone and give them a pass? Hmmmm.

11. Thank you, just wrote this to the White House

Please take the social safety net programs off the table. Real money can be found by cutting corporate welfare. Medicare could be made whole by allowing people to buy into the plan when they are young and healthy. Social security could be saved by removing the cap so that everyone continues paying into the fund on all earnings, not just the first $108k. These are common sense proposals that will not hurt the most vulnerable among us.
Thank you,

8. In the shower might be a good place

You'll feel much better.

The negotiations aren't over yet, but keep sending emails. I'll send one today too.

10. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Unfortunately, it's not practical for most of us to take a trip to Washington, DC, for this.

13. This is my thought! We need to run buses from the big cities like we did protesting the Iraq war

We need to surround Congress and the White house with millions of people! I'm not advocating we hinder their movement in any way, but I don't think they could ignore 10s of thousands or million or more people right outside their offices!! Those who can't make it, should be calling, emailing, and faxing all of the senate and house members and the White House, and we can gather at the FEDERAL buildings in our own cities!

Unfortunately, I have to be realistic; people will probably not be too keen on being out in the cold weather. I guess that their warmth & comfort is more important than SS & Medicare.
