Bernie Sanders: Hands Off Social Security

 on Jul 7, 2011

As Social Security emerged as a target in White House budget negotiations, Sen. Bernie Sanders insisted that the retirement program must not be cut as part of any deficit reduction deal. “Let us be clear,” Sanders said. “Social Security has not contributed one nickel to our deficit or our national debt.” The program that benefits more than 50 million seniors and disabled has a $2.6 trillion surplus, he stressed, and will be able to provide full benefits for every eligible American for the next 25 years. “I am especially disturbed that President Obama is considering cuts in Social Security after he campaigned against cuts in 2008,” Sanders added.

  9. It’s time to impeach O_bomb_a and wake the military up. It’s past time for another anti-war movement. I don’t give a crap that Vietnam made it unpopular to speak out against your own. When your own is bankrupting your country, it’s time to stop wasting time sticking yellow ribbons on your car and stick some sense into your relatives!
