Subject: BREAKING: Social Security still has $2.8 trillion in the bank.
| Melissa, |
This afternoon, Social Security's board of trustees released their annual report on the financial outlook of Social Security's trust fund. Just like last year, the report shows that our Social Security system's surplus is continuing to grow and will be around $2.8 trillion in 2014. But, we already know that the Wall Street bankers and their allies in Washington will distort this report and renew their calls to dismantle our Social Security system brick by brick. Stop the Wall Street attacks before they begin!
Help us preempt these Wall Street attacks with a $4 donation today.
Just as our movement to expand benefits is growing, the austerity-mongers will use this report to obscure the fact that Social Security will take in more money than it pays out—roughly $19.3 billion more in 2014—and cannot contribute to the deficit. The Wall Street bankers will do anything to get their hands on that money, even if it means tearing apart the system of protections we've built over almost 79 years.
We can fight back by keeping our focus on the real retirement crisis. Chip in $4 today to keep Social Security strong.
With our voices together, we have changed the conversation for the better. If we all stick together, I know we can keep do it again this time.
