Tell Congress: Don't Carve Up Social Security

Tell Congress: Don't Carve Up Social Security

Sign the pledge...

After taking action, please support our work!

The co-chairs of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform have proposed carving up Social Security like a Thanksgiving turkey. They want to increase the retirement age to 69 (making us work longer), deeply cut benefits for middle-class workers and reduce annual Cost of Living Adjustments. We need your help to stop them!

Join us in a National Call Congress Day on Tuesday, Nov. 30. Sign the "Count on Me" pledge to add your voice and tell Congress: DON'T CUT OUR SOCIAL SECURITY!

Social Security is a promise that must not be broken -- we work hard and our payroll taxes pay for it. It belongs to our children, our parents, our neighbors and ourselves. Due to unequal pay, time spent out of the workforce, and little to no savings, investments or pensions, women disproportionately rely on Social Security, so they stand to lose the most if these cuts are made.

Help ensure that Social Security will be there, keeping middle-class women out of poverty and not forcing them to work until they are nearly 70.

After you've signed the "Count on Me" pledge, forward this e-mail and tell your friends, family and co-workers to add their voice by participating in the National Call Congress Day on Tuesday, Nov. 30. Don't let politicians in Washington cut OUR Social Security! Act today.

P.S. If you don't act, Congress will assume you don't mind your Social Security benefits being carved up like a turkey! Sign the pledge NOW and we will send you a reminder email with the toll-free number the day before the call-in.
