The same financial interests which have opposed Social Security from its inception have never really given up. Seeing the program as a threat to private investment and their own interests, these forces have never accepted Social Security or Medicare. Through lies and misrepresentations these oligarchs are continuing their assault, now with a sympathetic Congressional majority in place in Washington. With people like the Koch brothers and their hundreds of millions at work, the attempt to tilt the playing field has already worked to an astonishing degree.
So, it is good to see an organization such as the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare working to preserve these vital programs. If power is knowledge the knowledge found on their web site can indeed make for power. Let us unite in strong opposition to any tampering with either Social Security or Medicare.
