Extremists in Congress are demanding a vote on legislation that would make it easier to slash Social Security and Medicare. Some are even threatening to shut the government down if they don’t get their way.

This legislation is dangerous.The bills would create a so-called “fiscal commission” that would be able to fast-track cuts behind closed doors with no public input.

There is a better way – making sure the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share into Social Security and Medicare. But these politicians are determined to cut the benefits we’ve earned over a lifetime of work.
