In lieu of a full update:  
Senate Democrats are asking people to sign their Pledge to Protect Social Security. This simple pledge lays out the reasons why George Bush's privatization plan is not the answer:

• It would cut Social Security’s funding and weaken the program.

• It would cut benefits by one-third or more, even for those who choose not to risk their money in a privatized account.

• It would require even deeper benefit cuts for those who do choose a privatized account.

• It would require borrowing nearly $5 trillion, much of which from foreign countries like China and Japan.

Join me and sign our Social Security Pledge today. I did and you should too:

I hope you're doing well, honey, and mending fast. Many thought winging their way to you from around here.

Can't sign - not a US citizen and that really is one for you guys - but I support the initiative.

*hugs*
