DO IT NOW DOSSIER: Kucinich: White House Now Conceals Plan to Cut Social Security

Washington, Jul 26 -

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today released the following statement:

Last Friday, the President told the nation that he offered a plan that would cut $650 billion from

Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Last night in his address to the nation, the President

didn’t want to ‘bore’ Americans with the details of his plan but threatened that Congress must

accept a deal on the debt ceiling or seniors face the possibility that Social Security checks won’t

go out.

“Curiously, the President didn’t explain in his primetime address to the nation that ‘the deal’ he

has been advocating cuts Social Security benefits and pushes back the retirement age. These

changes are unwarranted and indefensible.

“Social Security is 100% wholly funded up to the year 2036 without any changes whatsoever.  It

has no place in the debt ceiling debate at all.  Furthermore, it is not the government’s money but

the money of the workers who have paid into the program their entire lives.

“Threatening the withholding of Social Security checks to advance an agenda that includes

cutting Social Security benefits is not befitting of the Democratic Party, it is not fair to the

American people, and it represents a sellout of the interests of seniors.

“I want to be supportive of the President.  It would be easier to be supportive if the President’s

candor matched the level of his eloquence."

CONTACT YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND SENATORS. ALSO:call President Obama and tell him to BE A LEADER, use the Fourteenth Amendment and RAISE THE DEBT CEILING NOW:
