Act now to save Social Security!

Mr. Bush and those who wish to "salvage" Social Security with their personal or private account schemes apparently are distorting the truth. All right, I'll say it, they're lying.

Jim Hightower has a very different view of this program which Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed into law in 1935. "Social Security works. It is a phenomenal success, having achieved and continuing every day to achieve its noble purpose which was stateled plainly by FDR.."We have tried to frame a law that will give some measure of protection to the average citizen...against poverty-ridden old age."

As I said the other day, Mr. Hightower expresses this more clearly and simply than I could. Read the Lowdown for March.

If you would like to do your part to keep Mr. Bush and his cronies from wrecking one of the few good things federal government has done for the common man and woman, please sign the petition at www.unionvoice.org/campaign/ProtectSocialSecurity.

You can send e-mails to your Congressperson and Senators at http://www.aarp.org/socialsecurity.

There is still more that needs to be done if we're going to keep those people from destroying our Social Security. Act now before it's too late!

All right, people. I've sent letters to my Congressman, Jim Marshall, and to President Bush. Also, I signed the petition being circulated by the union.

I would like to hear what you all think.
