13. I think it is the mobilization of all those organizations to defend SS, Medicare and Medicaid

that has finally made them aware of how disastrous it will be if they in any way include SS in any discussions of the Deficit which it had nothing to do with. They have been made aware that we the people cannot be fooled anymore by the deceptive tactics of tying SS to the Deficit because we did not remain silent about it, even during the Election.

The huge coalition of organizations should continue to mobilize and remain a force for the protection of these programs, which are life saving for millions of Americans as we know that the attacks on SS will never stop and we know now that we cannot always depend on our elected officials to protect them.

We the people have to step up, as people are finally now doing, and not simply trust any politician to protect SS from those who have been trying to destroy from the very beginning.

I love that these groups, unions et al have now finally realized that this is necessary. No one missed the implications of SS being 'put on the table' except those who prefer to remain willfully blind.
