Pledge to Protect the Social Safety Net:
The war on our social safety net is now fully underway.
President Obama is offering cuts to Social Security benefits in exchange for GOP support for tax hikes. Democrats in the Senate and Congress will likely be forced to walk the plank and support those cuts, despite being deeply unpopular.
We refuse to sit by and watch the political classes get away with making cuts to Social Security. Firedoglake will make it as painful as possible for any politician from any party to participate in this wholesale looting of the public sphere.
Join us in demanding absolutely NO CUTS to social safety net programs like Medicare and Social Security.
