E-mail to White House: SUPPORT Social Security Already!

My e-mail contact to the White House Today:

The president simply must differentiate himself from the Republicans and start DEFENDING Core Democratic Values. Perry is now doubling down on his crazy "Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme" meme. The President should forget about compromising with these mean spirited Rightists, and say clearly and unequivocally that Democrats created Social Security, Social Security is in good financial shape and has never contributed one dime to the deficit, and the President WILL VETO any attempt to cut Social Security or raise the retirement age further. Period.

Then, Mr. Obama should ENDORSE Bernie Sanders's plan to ensure the solvency of Social Security indefinitely by lifting the cap on income subject to payroll taxes (an idea which CANDIDATE Obama endorsed).
