Did you happen to see this wonderful news letter that MoveOn sent out to all of its viewers in the continue "Defense of Social Security" campaign.
Via the always delightful Digby, this letter just is a COMPLETE WIN as it can get. It features 5 key myth busting facts to those who hate just helping their fellow American citizens, including...
Myth: Social Security is going broke.It is just full awesomeness to read folks.
Reality: There is no Social Security crisis. By 2023, Social Security will have a $4.3 trillion surplus (yes, trillion with a 'T'). It can pay out all scheduled benefits for the next quarter-century with no changes whatsoever.1 After 2037, it'll still be able to pay out 75% of scheduled benefits--and again, that's without any changes. The program started preparing for the Baby Boomers retirement decades ago.2 Anyone who insists Social Security is broke probably wants to break it themselves.
The terrific Joe Stiglitz says "We Are Probably Going To Have To Bail Out The Banks Again ."
Just two more SOP classless A-Holes, what a surprise.
You just had to know there would be some scary after effects after what happened with SB1070. Raul Grijalva's office has seen a bullet hit their office .
The partial implementation of the Arizona immigration law, SB1070, began today in earnest, and already we’re seeing the friction between supporters and immigration rights advocates play out. Adam Sarvana, a spokesman for Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), an outspoken critic of the law, just sent out this release:
The Yuma district office of Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva has been closed for the day because of recent vandalism. A shattered window and bullet inside the office were found earlier today. Police are investigating the incident and have not released details about a potential motive. Rep. Grijalva intends to open the office again as soon as possible.
How lovely from Phyllis Schlafly:
And "Tenther" All Star Rick Perry, facing some serious ethic charges, declares that Texas has the best health care in the country.......despite it having the worst uninsured rate.
He is some genius.
Your other deliveries folks.
