a FEW weeks ago, Republican members of Congress went home to their districts and held town hall meetings with one goal: sell George W. Bush's risky Social Security privatization plan to their constituents.
The result? Polls show that after a week of listening to the Republican sales pitch, the American people are more opposed than ever to the Bush privatization plan.
The American people understand that 40 percent benefit cuts and trillions in additional debt will do nothing to preserve the long-term solvency of Social Security.
George Bush and the GOP leadership made a huge miscalculation when they decided to make a play to Destory Social Security -- a program that has lifted generations of senior citizens out of poverty.
Americans are united -- we've got Bush on the run and have a chance to tell the GOP that we've had enough of this nonsense. Its time to sent Bush and the GOP packing.
But Bush isn't giving up on his plan to destory Social Security. Instead, he's sending out his top officials -- including "NO-BID" Cheney -- on a 60-day, 60-city tour to try and create public support where none exists.
We must fight back by exposing the Bush Administration's risky scheme to destory Social Security.
Patriotic American are winning this fight, but that doesn't mean it's time to ease up. You can help,Write your Congressman and Senators and tell them that a vote to destory Social Security will be like voting themselves out of office.
Tell them to stand up against Bush by letting them know you stand behind them.
Let both parties in Congress know that they have your support in the fight to stop Bush's plan to destory Social Security.
"The public is scared of the Bush privatization plan."
When will you numbnut Lefties wake up to some modicum of smarts!
The average return on the classic federal SS plan the past 50 years has been 1.8% a year. The average return on the Standard and Poors stock/equity chart has been 10% a year. In case your math skills aren't too good...well, ask for help.
Second, the Bush equity investment alternative SS plan is TOTALLY VOLUNTARY!!! You don't like it, you don't have to opt for it!! And if you do opt, it's only 2-1/2 % of your total SS deduction per month!
"the Bush equity investment alternative SS plan is TOTALLY VOLUNTARY!!! You don't like it, you don't have to opt for it!! And if you do opt, it's only 2-1/2 % of your total SS deduction per month! Get it, asshole!"
Why take money from Social Security? Americans have had the freedom to chose private retirement accounts for many years, and just to enlighten you...they are called IRA's and 401K's. And guess what smartass...you can get a tax deduction each year when you fund your account. NOW, would you rather have your tax deductable IRA AND Social Security, OR would you like Bush's none tax deductable bullshit plan and a destroyed Social Security??
