The MMOB Takes Action To Save Social Secu= rity

"Write the Right" program helps grassroots moms contact Congress
   M= ainstreet Moms (The MMOB) is reaching out to offer courage to their elected officials= in
Washington= , D.C., urging them to protect Socia= l Security from President Bush's privatization scheme.
   Members, family, and f= riends are writing personal letters to about 100 Republicans in Congress who are either on the record as critical of privatization, or are part of self-identified moderate groups. Hearing from educated constituents will encourage rational Republicans to resist political pressure from Bush's rad= ical right wing and reject the scare tactics being used to frighten the American people in an attempt to demolish Social Security.
   MMOB volunteers develo= ped the "Write the Right" Bite Size Action to help busy parents, grandparents, and grandkids tell their elected officials to stop the White House from inventing a fake crisis. The MMOB web site offers downloadable Social Security Stationery, and a directory of moderates organized by state. Background Fact Sheets explain that privatization does nothing to address a= ny solvency issues Social Security may face, and that Social Security--much mo= re than a retirement plan--was designed to also protect widows, orphans and disabled workers from an economic free fall.
   Megan Matson, Director= of The MMOB, says, "Social Security is one of the most successful, humane= and efficient programs ever. We want to celebrate that fact while reaching out = to the sane Republicans who must be tired of all the strong-arming going on wi= thin their own party."

About The MMOB:
