Tell Congress where to cut

In order to balance the budget, Congress is considering devastating cuts to programs like Medicare, Social Security and education. They need to decide by the end of the year.

But the first place they should look to for cuts is our costly, outdated and dangerous nuclear weapons stockpile. Please take action

No reason to make the poor, elderly and middle class pay for the crimes, greed and stupidity of Wall Street and the elite. Let them pay their way out of their own mess. The middle class has already done its fair share of compromising, bailing their *sses out. And letting them have their Bush Tax Cuts for over a decade. I'd rather just revert to Clinton era rates for us all. Life was prosperous then for everyone.

No touching SS. It doesn't contribute a dime to the deficit and it's just Wall Street's latest Ponzi scam to get their paws on more of our money.

It's not just the Bush tax cuts, every time we have a financial problem in this country, say about every four years, the first place we look for cuts is in the Social Security, Medicare, add to that any and all programs for human assistance.

They could end all the wars we are engaged in and avoid any new ones. Two unpaid for wars and greed on Wall Street are what put us in this mess, not Social Security or Medicare. The Republicans tried to block the passage of Medicare by Johnson, and have been after it ever since. Same when FDR proposed Social Security, the wealthy didn't think the poor needed a life jacket for retirement.
