IMPORTANT NOTICE: The blogger has received notice of new responsibilities relevant to new "laws" coming from the European Union. The blogger receives no personally indentifiable information. As the task of understanding just what this new "law" (not applicable to American citizens) means will take some time, The Musical Patriot respectfully asks citizens in the European Union to cease and desist from accessing this blog for the time being. I completely regret the need for this request. When things are clearer, I will have more to say. I look forward to welcoming Europeans back to this blog. Europeans and others are instead directed to my new blog with a new host. (See link in post below.)

Social Security and Medicare Under Attack

Quick Post With Link --

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.
