President Obama and Congress:
HANDS OFF SOCIAL SECURITY!
REAL STIMULUS: JOBS NOW!
Wednesday, January 26, 4 PM
SF Federal Building, Mission & 7th Streets.
Join the California Alliance for Retired Americans, Jobs with Justice, and many other organizations to demand HANDS OFF SOCIAL SECURITY and JOBS NOW on the day after the President’s State of the Union Address:
Congress AND President Obama appear to be on the verge of needlessly cutting Social Security, America’s most valued social program. Social Security is in sound fiscal shape for at least the next 27 years. It has not contributed a cent to the deficit. Cutting Social Security is financially unnecessary and will throw millions, old and young alike, into poverty.
Instead of cutting taxes for the wealthy and cutting contributions to Social Security, we need REAL stimulus: Jobs Now! Jobs to build affordable housing, to hire teachers, to train health workers, to rebuild our cities, and to provide clean power. We need jobs to give security to today’s workers and Social Security to give dignity to tomorrow’s retirees.
