Don't Let Bush Cut Benefits

Editor:

President Bush is not endangering my retirement. However, Bush and his wealthy buddies are severely restricting the retirements of millions of Americans by taking the first step in his plan to dismantle Social Security.

Recently, White House sources revealed their plan to cut promised benefits to retirees by nearly a third. And these cuts are guaranteed -- whether you opt in to the Bush plan or not.

For those entering the workforce today, that means more than a 25 percent cut in the retirement benefits they're counting on; for their children, it guarantees a 46 percent cut.

Don't let George W. Bush and the current administration cut guaranteed retirement benefits -- especially when so many of us are counting on Social Security to help us survive with some dignity when we retire.
