Sign the petition: no 10% Social Security cut for 85-year-olds!!! [View all]

The deal being discussed in the media will cut Social Security more and more as recipients age - about 10% by the time a person reaches 85. Savage!

And Social Security has zero to do with the deficit - it's forbidden by law from causing a deficit. Obama has said that himself. So why is it part of a deficit deal? Because it allows taxes to stay low on the wealthiest Americans.

ProSense and I put up a White House petition yesterday - we need about 100 more signatures before it becomes publicly-searchable on the White House site.

Will you please help?

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: not cut Social Security and/or Medicare to simply keep taxes low on the wealthiest Americans
