Think *this* sucks? It's only *Part 1* of the Social Security cuts [View all]

The chained-CPIing of the 99% is just a "technical tweak" (or whatever nonsense they're calling it) as part of the deficit negotiations.

It's very likely that a second attack on Social Security will take place later on, to "strengthen it for our children": after all, it will go bankrupt in 25 years or so (which is unmitigated bullshit, based on cooked numbers from Timmy Geithner et al - ask me if you want details). So we have to "save" it! There's already been broad agreement that this should be a negotiation separate from the deficit discussions.

In all, the President's Simpson-Bowles Commission called for a 22% cut in the average Social Security recipients benefits. I expect that the assault won't stop until the wealthiest have that 22% in their own bank accounts.

The biggest bank heist of all time.

That's all I got. Let the Manny-abuse begin!

And sign the effing petition! Email four others and ask them to sign it too, right now!
