Because I don't get all the action alerts at once, Social Security Works helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject any attempt to use any future coronavirus relief legislation as a bludgeon to hurt our Social Security. "Hurting Social Security" includes both cutting the benefits we've fought for and worked for and cutting the payroll taxes that fund Social Security. You'll also ask your Congressfolk to expand Social Security benefits; you know that can be done by raising the cap on income that can be taxed into Social Security, so don't brook any nonsense from your Congressfolk about that. You know, our President, as a "businessman," drove at least four corporations into bankruptcy and drained the wealth out of them as they crashed and burned, and we've all thought well, at least you can't bankrupt a country so easily. But then you look at a $3 trillion-and-counting budget deficit, and you look at Social Security's nearly $3 trillion trust fund, and you start to think that, well, maybe that's the way to bankrupt America! So how about we not let Our Glorious Elites get away with such unconscionable evil?
Meanwhile, you've heard that our President has decided to hold up funding for the World Health Organization (or WHO), ostensibly until "a review is conducted to assess the World Health Organization's role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus," but more likely to distract everyone from his own severe mismanagement and covering up the spread of the coronavirus. I don't know if he has to wait for Congress to authorize such a move, or if Congress has already delegated that responsibility to him, but why not make that issue moot? MoveOn helps you tell both your Congressfolk and our President to restore the WHO's funding. This sure is a hell of a time to cut funding to an organization trying to help people not get sick and die! But, of course, as we have seen repeatedly over the last three-plus years, our President thinks any time is a good time to cause chaos and hardship for other people. Why, he's like a one-man Bush Mobb! George W. Bush is not the most popular of our ex-Presidents, of course, but if we do the right thing now, we can bring about this President's eventual and deserved humiliation much sooner.
