Dear Mr President
Why are you trying to destroy Social Security? The chained CPI is an evil idea wrapped in pretty paper that helps no one but the Republicans who have been trying to destroy Social Security since FDR. And now, when they find themselves in a position with no way out, you want to give them a prize in return for nothing that you won't get if you tell Speaker Boehner to bugger off. If we had any real need to cut the deficit, where are the huge defense cuts? Where are the cuts to Big Oil & Pharma subsidies? Where are the cuts to all manner of unnecessary corporate welfare? Where is the man we thought we re-elected to the White House? The man who won't balance his budget on the backs of those least able to support it?
