Look for Opportunities to Fight for Social Security!

Congressman Sam Johnson held a town hall meeting March 7, at CCCC at Spring Creek campus in Plano. Johnson has said publicly that he wants to privatize Social Security and nuke Syria. Anti-privatization activists planned to attend.

Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson held 4 Town Hall meetings last weekend in Dallas. I'll post her comments at each of the meetings:

She spoke at the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Local 6215 Hall on Friday afternoon, at the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) Hall on Saturday morning, at Teamsters (IBT) Local 745 Sunday morning, and at the Dallas Public Library (pictured here) Sunday evening.

I would like to post notifications of every opportunity we get to stand up for Social Security and oppose privatization. Please tell me if you hear of one. Also, we should be forming delegations to each Congressperson. If you are interested in a delegation to your own congressperson, please contact me.


The facts are strong:

  • 1. Social Security is not in immediate danger

  • 2. Even if it were, privatization would not help

  • 3. Bush's "solution" would actually make our economic situation, especially the deficit, much worse

  • 4. There are many simple methods to get more funds into Social Security when needed. Privatization is not "the only solution;" it isn't a solution at all!

Please attend every Social Security meeting possible. Let me help you build your delegation to save SSA!
