Oppose Using the Social Security and Retired Military COLA to save money for budget deficit!

Dear Friends and Fellow Patriots,
CALL TO ACTION IN SUPPORT OF FELLOW AMERICANS!
It is important to contact your Senators and Representative in Congress now and let them know you do not agree with their latest scheme to reduce the deficit on the backs of those who draw Social Security and military retirements by reducing the Cost Of Living Adjustment(COLA) for annual pay calculations! The COLA is already as low as is possible and each year they add increases in outlays that have to be paid by recipients that these small increases do not cover, as well as, they do not cover the increases in inflation they are supposed to cover (Inflation that the feds say doesn't exist, but you and I know they are lying because they obviously must not take into account groceries and utilities which HAVE increased significantly over each of the last few years, then add on gas, etc.!) 
You have to call now and tomorrow and the next day--if you wait, they will do this because it is EASY, while leaving ALL THE WELFARE programs providing NON-NECESSITIES, like CELL phones and huge food stamp allowances (many of which are being spent fraudulently) and FREE or HUGELY SUBSIDIZED utility bills for those who have not worked for their UNEARNED BENEFITS! You know as a Christian I support helping the truly needy amongst us, but we both know what is really happening in these programs.  As a Patriot, I also know that we do have to eliminate, not just reduce, the budget deficit, however, I do not agree with reductions in earned benefits FIRST, before eliminating ALL unearned benefits, except for those who are most needy of my fellow citizens!

Time to let these mostly pompous asses in Congress know AGAIN that THEY WORK FOR US and we SAY NO to this cut in the minuscule benefits that persons paid into or served 24/7 in the military for every day of their working lives!

Please go here for Senators:

Contact me a message to my inbox with subject: OPPOSE COLA DECREASE if you need help, but please don't let this go by without calling these people that work for us!!! 

WHEN YOU CALL, HERE'S THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET YOUR POINT ACROSS. WHEN YOUR CALL IS ANSWERED, SAY "GOOD MORNING/AFTERNOON, MY NAME IS (FIRST AND LAST NAME), I LIVE IN (CITY/COUNTY, STATE) ZIP CODE (#####).  I AM CALLING TODAY TO LET SENATOR/REPRESENTATIVE (NAME) KNOW I OPPOSE REDUCING THE COLA FOR SOCIAL SECURITY RECIPIENTS AND RETIRED MILITARY IN ORDER TO REDUCE THE BUDGET DEFICIT UNTIL ALL THE UNNECESSARY WELFARE PROGRAMS ARE ELIMINATED.”
The person on the phone will take your information so say this, especially the first part with name and zip code not too quickly that they can't make the note. Wait for them to acknowledge your comments and always be polite to and thank this person who takes a LOT of complaints every day. I always tell them may GOD bless them and Senator/Representative (NAME), because I hope, for our nation's sake, HE does.

Please make phone calls and PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY and ask them to help also. Thank-you! And remember always "-to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your GOD" Micah 6:8 1599 Geneva Bible

I will update this as I find out more tomorrow and so forth. Thank-you family and friends!

The links go to documents in my Google drive and can be accessed freely, but I recommend you download the documents for your future ease of contacting your representatives.
Here are the numbers to our Florida representatives:
Senator Bill Nelson - 202-224-5274
Senator Marco Rubio - 202-224-3041
Also call:
Senator Harry Reid - 202-224-3542   When you call Senator Reid, state that you are contacting him because he is the Majority leader of the Senate and therefore you want him to know you have contacted your Senators and him to let them know that you oppose decreasing the COLA for SS and military retirees to reduce the budget until all the unnecessary unearned welfare programs are eliminated.
Senator Mitch McConnell - 202-224-2541  When you call Senator McConnell, state that you are contacting him because he is the Minority leader of the Senate and therefore you want him to know you have contacted your Senators and him to let them know that you oppose decreasing the COLA for SS and military retirees to reduce the budget until all the unnecessary unearned welfare programs are eliminated. 
And if Ander Crenshaw is your Representative, I encourage calling him and letting him know you oppose decreasing the COLA for SS and military retirees.  202-225-2501

I've been hearing AARP advertisements on the radio regarding the COLA as they call it "chained CPI" which will decrease the COLA as I explained. Of course, as I would expect from AARP, they focus only on saving the SS COLA but don't bother to include military retirement, which I think deserves as much protection as SS does. Please, make calls and please share this with family and friends and ask them to help support Senior Citizens and military retirees/military disabled over broad, wasteful welfare programs with phone calls also. Thank-you!
