Social Security sell-out

Just a note to my older readers: President Obama promised to protect our Social Security and Medicare benefits. Instead, he has voluntarily added the “chained CPI” to his concessions to the Republicans. Over time it will reduce our SS benefits and is a violation of his promise to us. I urge you to call or write him and your Democratic representatives in Washington today to protest this sell-out. (One easy way to send an email to all of them is Congress.org.)

... and that's my two cents
