Catfood Commission To Seniors: Eat Catfood And Die, Mofo's!

Quoting Michael Whitney of Firedoglake:

Social Security cuts are coming for “virtually every American alive and those yet to be born,” in the words of Eric Kingson, co-chair of the Strengthen Social Security Campaign.

And for what? Corporate tax cuts.

Seriously: the co-chairs of President Obama’s deficit commission want to cut Social Security benefits for everyone making more than $25,000 a year. And then cap corporate taxes at just 26%.

Every member of this commission, every member of Congress, and President Obama himself must reject these insane ideas. We’re starting an emergency petition to President Obama, and his Catfood Commission to take Social Security cuts off the table.


Middle-class and lower-income readers, it's time to pick up your metaphorical pitchforks and torches. It's time to go after the bastards. Start by inundating the foolish man who instigated this atrocity (I mean Obama, of course) and his Catfood Commission (Deficit Commission) with petitions against any congressional action to reduce Social Security or set the age of eligibility later than it is. Two good places to sign are

Do it right now; you know the bastards are going to act quickly.
