Sherrod Brown Petition: 78 more years of Social Security
from my email ...
For more than three quarters of a century, Social Security has meant a great deal to our country.
If you get hurt and become disabled, Social Security is there for you. If a loved one dies, Social Security is there for your family. And if you work all your life and play by the rules, Social Security is there for you when you retire.
Social Security isnít a bargaining chip, itís an earned benefit. Yet right now Republicans in the House are threatening to hold Americaís credit rating hostage unless we approve cuts to Social Security.
"History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of 'history' it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody understands at the time -- and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened." (Hunter S. Thompson)
