Case study, second installment

Last Tuesday, I started this Case study of political leadership failure.  Below is an email I received from Democrats. I project that our political leadership in Washington will fail us on this. What do you think? What does Congressman Palmer think? You could ask him. (He hasn't answered anything I've asked him, so there is no point in my asking him.)

Subj: SIGN: protect Social Security 


The GOP's first priority of the new Congress is clear -- they want to cut Social Security.

We have to fight back. They backtracked on promises to create jobs, and instead, decided to gut a program that millions of people rely on. Don’t allow them to destroy all that we have worked so hard for.

So many of you have already stood up, and we're so thankful for that. But now, will you demand that they leave Social Security alone by adding your name here?

Boehner and his allies said they'd be focused on job creation, but if that was true, they wouldn't make attacking Social Security their first priority. It's plain old dirty politics -- and it only hurts the most vulnerable working Americans. We won't stand for it, and we need your help to stop them, Robert.

Add your name here to demand that the GOP stop their senseless attacks on Social Security.

Thanks for helping us hold the GOP accountable.

Stop the Tea Party
