By now you have heard that the Majority Leader Eric Cantor said that Social Security “cannot exist if we want America to be what we want America to be.”
At least they are out in the open about their plans.
So Campaign for America’s Future wants to do something about it, and you can help. They are hoping to run an ad in Cantor’s home district. This ad:
“We’re going to have to come to grips with the fact that these programs cannot exist if we want America to be what we want America to be.”
If you follow the right’s insider stuff — their radio shows, their speeches to their own groups, their blogs, etc. — you know this is what they say to each other all the time. But not when they think the public is paying attention.
But what they are doing is going directly after Social Security, Medicare and the rest of the things that We, the People (government) do to empower and protect each other. In the current round of budget cuts they snuck in cuts to the Social Security Administration, which manages the program, so they will unable to perform their duties and will look bad to the public.
The Campaign for America’s Future has this TV ad that will let his constituents know about his extreme opposition to Social Security. They need your help to get it on the air.
