Some upcoming events around the issue of Social Security and a quick update.
The KCMO city council has introduced a resolution stating that they oppose private accounts, thanks to the hard work of the local coalition, Americans United to Protect Social Security and Councilwoman Saundra McFadden-Weaver. Now, the council needs to hear from you to get this passed. You all have the opportunity to testify in front of the Council on why this resolution is important and must be passed. It’s easy: show up, listen for the call for public testimony, speak on why private accounts are bad for all people, and then go home feeling great that you will see yourself on channel 2 (city government) and that you helped the fight to protect Social Security.
