Social Security is “a milk cow with 310 million tits" for the "lesser people of society."
That's how Alan Simpson, the man appointed to co-chair the Deficit Commission, sees things. But Simpson is just reflecting the views of the commission, a group stacked with millionaires who favor Social Security privatization and massive benefit cuts that will plunge 1.5 million senior citizens into poverty.
Firedoglake has been on the front lines of reporting about what the Commission's plans have been all along, when most of the media was ignoring them. FDL coined the phrase "Catfood Commission" to describe what will happen if Simpson and the commission get their way: senior citizens will be eating catfood to survive once the social safety net starts to crumble.
Please donate $5 or more to help Firedoglake continue to fight the Catfood Commission's determination to cut Social Security benefits.
