CLEVELAND, July 14 — The BLET is asking all members to join the International Brotherhood of Teamsters for National Call Congress Days, July 14 and 15. Tell your Senators to stop the Social Security cuts, and don’t raid Social Security to give corporations another tax break!
You can participate in National Call Congress Days by calling 1-866-251-4044. Simply follow the prompts to connect to your Senators.
As background, Social Security faces an immediate threat from politicians in Washington who want to:
• Cut Social Security’s Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) to reduce the deficit. But Social Security doesn’t contribute a penny to the deficit.
• Raid Social Security to give corporations a tax break, jeopardizing the Social Security benefits that 54 million Americans rely on. Corporations shouldn’t get another handout.
“These cuts and raids on Social Security could potentially damage our Railroad Retirement benefits,” BLET National President Dennis Pierce said. “I urge all active and retired BLET members, as well as members of the BLET Auxiliary, to call their Senators as soon as possible.”
Call your Senators RIGHT NOW at 1-866-251-4044.
Tell the person in the Senate office who answers the phone:
I am a voter/constituent living in [your city and state]. I am calling to tell the Senator:
NO CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY!
NO CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY’S COLA!
NO SOCIAL SECURITY PAYROLL TAX HOLIDAY!
Call 1-866-251-4044 now. Don’t let politicians in Washington cut or raid OUR Social Security or Railroad Retirement.
