President Obama may have hoped his proposal to cut Social Security benefits would go unnoticed this weekend. If so, he was sorely mistaken.
Progressives across the country are rising up against his dangerous plan. Democracy for America members are leading the charge -- and making headlines:
-- Democracy for America called the cuts "profoundly disturbing," on CNN.
-- DFA Chair Jim Dean is quoted on ABC News as saying "We are prepared to fight (President Obama) every step of the way."
--And the Huffington Post reported that "any Democrat that votes to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits is risking a primary challenge" from DFA members.
The pundits and power-brokers in DC are taking notice. We've got the momentum -- but only a few more days before President Obama formally sends his proposal to Congress. We can't let up on the pressure.
