What Other MoveOn Members Are Hearing

They would let Senator Nelson know my views.

— Orlando, 2012-12-18 07:19:01

I got a staffer - I told them Senator Nelson' constituents were full of seniors and the disabled and I expected him to do everything in his power to kill President Obama's offer. I said Obama's actions were simply unacceptable. They said they would pass my views on to Senator Nelson.

The aide listened politely, took notes on what I said, and said it would be passed on to Sen. Nelson. In brief I said "Take the income cap off SS; turn it into an income tax instad of a payroll tax; and SS would be fixed forever. We won the election: Stand up for what we stand for as Democrats."

— Fort Lauderdale, 2012-12-18 07:56:03

— Miami, 2012-12-18 08:06:40

My State retirement money has already been lessened (by having Scott lower my DROP percentage)---having my Social Security, that I have been paying into faithfully my entire working life, diminished now will really damage the quality of life in my retirement years.

this is important. There is a recording and music on hold or emailbillnelson.senate.gov . I called again and received the recording and music on hold, then it sounded like someone answered and hung up. No words exchanged, but i could hear a lot of commotion in the background. so I'll try the email. Do these calls really make any difference at all?

— miami lakes, 2012-12-18 08:36:37

I just made a (polite) statement to be relayed to Senator Nelson. The staffer was typing and said, "Sure thing."

— St. George Island, 2012-12-18 08:37:00

Please do not play around with social security. We earned that money and it should not be taken away from us. Let me take away from the senators and congressmen who have a much better plan or let them join our plan of social security.

Social Security are how so many seniors and mental challence alone with other concerns of illness is how many people continue to meet the economy needs of todays society, if you all cut that cost all living, might as well put the people out of the privacy independent living of their homes independence living condition living facility.for example my brother took a illness of having a stroke in 2002, and only if he had never put his all into the working environment of our everyday society there for he could not have social security benefit to survive off, and it's still not enough, and you mean to tell me you all wants to reported cuts on that, shouldn't be,there are others solution. lets stop robin peter from paul to let the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor, lets learn to past the blessing aboard. we can't take it with us, please lets replenish the Earth.

Please don't let them mess with social security and Medicare

— Plant city, 2012-12-18 09:05:19

spoke to his office on the phone told him we do not want any deal that touches Social Security or Medicare or even Medicaid. I am not sure what they will do, however if they make a deal like this one making cuts to Social Security or Medicare then I can assure you they will pay at election time. I hate republicans but if the democrats touch my SS or medicare and there is an Independant running I'll vote independant if not I won't vote at all, I sure won't vote for a republican all they want to do is hurt seniors and give the rich bigger cuts! I am now going to contact the Whitehouse and President Obama, we need a petition. I'd rather go over the cliff than give one inch to those republicans. I can't believe the President would sell us out!

— Pensacola, 2012-12-18 09:07:20

— Tamarac, 2012-12-18 09:20:21

I had to leave a message because the lines were all busy. I made my expectation clear, and I'll keep trying throughout the day to speak to a person in his office.

— Ormond Beach, 2012-12-18 09:20:36

Bill Nelson is against cuts to Social Security and Medicare as well as increasing taxes to the middle class, but has no position on tax cuts for those making more than $250K.

— Fort Lauderdale, 2012-12-18 09:21:03

just received my notice of my SS payment for the year 2013...it shows a increase of $21.00 per month for the entire year. That is a 1.7% increase...real inflation at the supermarket is 20+% across the board...and you want to reduce it........?????

Staffer said she'd let Mr. Nelson know about my concerns.

— Sarasota, 2012-12-18 09:24:16

Email him. Him earlier and have not yet received reply

— Green Cove, 2012-12-18 09:24:25

Initial voice mail saying lines are busy. A staffer will be with me in a moment.... THAT WAS 5 MINUTES AGO! Finally, I was able to leave a message with the staffer and she said she would give him my message. Which was... I have paid into Social Security for 35 years consistently... I am against any cuts in Social Security. I did my part all these years and the government needs to recipricate via no cuts in Social Security.

— Gainesville, 2012-12-18 09:25:00

Whether the cuts being tentatively discussed are real or not I think it is too early to determine. However, Social Security changes are necessary and need to be considered as part of an overall deficit and budget reduction package.

— Parrish, 2012-12-18 09:26:08

Their lines were busy and leaving a message was the only option. I told him abandoning the elderly and poor to support the wealthy was not an option anymore. I voted for you and you need to support me now.

— Plantation, 2012-12-18 09:26:10

They were not taking messages over the phone. I did write an email.

— surfside, 2012-12-18 09:26:19

— West Palm Beach, 2012-12-18 09:28:00

Staffer said would communicate concerns. No cuts Chained CPI is a non starter

— Kissimmee, 2012-12-18 09:28:01

Talked to a staffer and told her that SS has no place on the table of the deficit talks as it is deficit netural through payroll taxes and holds 2.7 trillion dollars in US treasuary bonds currently in its account to lift thye cap on all income and it will be sured up for years. Also having met Mr Nelson at a banquet last year I was very disappointed to hear that he was turning his back on the people that voted him in after promising not to touch SS during his speeach at the banquet...They said they would let Mr Nelson know and asked for my zip code.

— Sat Bch, 2012-12-18 09:28:14

Ask for no cuts to SSI.

— Miami, 2012-12-18 09:29:05

The young lady answering the phone repeated my message to me and stated that she would let Senator Nelson know. I included my concern regarding insurance rates increasing 3% yearly along with a deductible increase--passed by legislators--no cap and no break for seniors--increasing costs for mortgage cannot even be covered by increase in social security--we NEED the ss increases!

— Melbourne, 2012-12-18 09:31:20

I could not stay on hold, so I went to his website and sent a written message!

— Parriah, 2012-12-18 09:35:34

I emailed the following to Nelson, Rubio, Posey + Leahy, Sanders, Welsch (I own property in VT RE: SOCIAL SECURITY Why is it whenever Republicans create one of their fake fiscal crises, they do so because they want to go after government spending for the nation's most vulnerable? I heard this morning that you signaled you might given on changing the COLA for Social Security. ARE YOU CRAZY??????? These are the most vulnerable. Every year my circle used to laugh at gov cost of living stats saying they can't include the groceries needed to raise a family! I still feel that way about your market basket. Time for a reality check on cost increases for the middle class First, I don't know what is in your market basket that determines cost of living but it has nothing to do with the real world. My cost of living goes up far higher than government stats say. So, if cost of living is going up more than your gov stats, you should leave COLA for SS alone. Remember the Republicans have created fake fiscal crises at least once a decade just to go after entitlements. Maybe they should look to themselves to cut gov spendings such as the merger of ATC facilities and dozens of other things that they don't want to touch because it would mean sacrificing in their districts. If there is such a fiscal crisis (which I highly doubt) then Congressionally imposed gov inefficiencies should be the first on the block not senior citizens or other EARNED BENEFITS (they are not entitlements when we pay into them with each pay check.

They told me that they would give Sen.

I've lived a large part of my life out of this country, and we are way behind in helping our people. All they said was they would give him the message. Don' hold your breath with him........

— Deerfield Beach, 2012-12-18 09:45:13

I got Bill's answering machine,and I left a message that I heard that the reported deal between President Obama and Speaker Boehner includes cuts to social security. I said that since social security has not contributed to the defecit, it should not be part of the fiscal cliff negotiations. I further said that if I had gotten a live person I would have asked if Senator Nelson intends to vote against a deal that includes cuts to social security. I reiterated that it was my preference to vote against a bill that includes cuts to social security.

Go Too Bill Nelson Website!!!

— Port Saint Lucie, 2012-12-18 09:46:31

They are not making any comments at all. I wrote the Whitehouse and the President and I call Bill Nelsons office as well as sent him an email. Where is the We The People Petition at, we need to stand strong and go over the cliff if we can't get the right deal. We paid the taxes under Clinton and we can do it again, the country was doing good under Clinton. We need lots of independants running for office, men and women with backbone who fight for all Americans not just the rich. I say if the President takes a deal that touches even 1 cent of Social Security then we push for impeachment!

— Pensacola, 2012-12-18 09:46:32

Dear Senator Nelson, Please don't cut Social Security or Medicare. Thank you, Craig

I had to leave a message. I said there should be NO cuts whatsoever in Social Security as part of any budget deal. I reiterated that point three times. NONE. NO CUTS.

— Orlando, 2012-12-18 09:50:47

No cuts in Social Security & Medicare. To some of us, this is our only income. How are we to live w/ cuts. Everything is going up in price, food, medical, rents, taxes. Fight to save our entitlements, we worked all our lives to contribute to our now benefits.

The mailbox was 'full' and I couldn't leave a message. It's totally unfair. I've been paying into social security ever since I got my first job at age 13. Now, I won't even get any support. How is it entitlement, when it's something I was forced to contribute to?

— North Port, 2012-12-18 10:12:23

Why is Social Security used to "balance the budget"? It has nothing to do with the income tax. It is it's own account and should be treated independently, not in negotiation with taxation. It isn't a tax, nor a bargaining chip. I don't see any of the "richies" giving their contributions back! You can get it off the board. You need to discuss the tax question on its own merit. You and others need to take a firmer stand with regards to social security and medicare.

— Tampa, 2012-12-18 10:14:06

Social Security is something we paid into all of our lives. How fair is it for you to take this away. The government has been borrowing from these funds for years now you need to put these funds back. Social Security is little enough as it is and difficult enough to live on especially in this economy that Wall St. and Hedge Funders created. Please do not cut Social Security.

— KEY WEST, 2012-12-18 10:32:46

Dear Senator Nelson, We are counting upon you to be diligent in keeping any cuts to the social contract from hurting seniors. We can find the money elsewhere and would rather go over the so called cliff than allowing the GOP to dismantle a system which has worked for over 780 years.

Please don't let the Republicans or Pres. Obama do any cut whatsoever to Social Security, or Medicare. It has nothing at all to do with the deficit. The Republicans have been trying to kill it for years - - I w9uld like to know why, is in order to put more money in their pockets as if they don't have enough all ready.

I asked Senator Nelson to please oppose any cuts to Social Security. I live in North Miami Beach, FL. I am dependent on Social Security. My son is unemployed and we are struggling not knowing even if we'll have enough money to eat. It is totally unbelievable to me that the budget needs to be balanced on the backs of the elderly and poor. What is our country coming to? I paid into SS for 53 years and now you want to reduce my SS?

Had to leave a message.

— Palmetto, 2012-12-18 11:35:41

I will send a follow-up email as their message suggested. One thing which could help is SS payments being made from all incomes, not capping at 100 grand or so. Another: the wealthy (100 grand per year or more in retirement income) would not receive any monthly benefits unless/until crisis hits leaving them no longer wealthy. They might actually need it sometime, like me and people like me. It can happen and often does. One crisis can wipe out a millionaire. As it is, I get $700/month which will be reduced by Medicare B starting Feb., 2013. If I had been able to continue my job (approx 30 grand/year) I could have received $900/month gross, pre tax and pre Medicare, but I had no job. Fortunately I became eligible for early SS at 64 and took it. I would love to see these jerks who talk about cutting our 'insurance policy', aka Soc Sec, live on $1000/month (or 2 or 3 even). There will always be low income people (more if these jerks get what they want) here, so we always must help them (many out there have less than I do). The low income people are part of why the rich are rich.

— Brooksville, 2012-12-18 11:37:48

— Vero Beach, 2012-12-18 11:39:35

Social Security and Medicare are NOT entitlement programs and we need to stop letting mean spirited people call them that. We paid in as employers and employees. And where's all the money from people who die before ever collecting, The General Revenue borrowed unconscionably. Punish those who made that stupid decision and never found a way to repay the loan!!! How about not having an income cut off for deductions

— Altamonte Springs, 2012-12-18 11:39:56

No answer. Directed me to the website. I left a msg I expected him to do all he could do to kill Pres. Obama's plan to cut SS or Medicare.

— Vero Beach, 2012-12-18 11:40:33

please do not touch SS that I paid for all my life and count on. I am a 60 year old single mother so I could NOT take care of my children and put money aside for retirement. SS is all I have to look forward to. Also medicare is the only health insurance I have to look forward to as I can't aford any other health insurance. Medicaid? How in the world will the poor and diabled americans be able to afford health care, and SSD is for many the only form of income as they can not work any longer due to disability, and this I know for a fact is true as befor anyone can receive SSD they must prove they can't work. So please leave SS, Medicare, Medicaid, and SSD alone. these for the most part are americans who have worked hard all their lives, paid more taxes then they could afford and we all believed we were paying for sercurity, please let this be true.

— Deerfield Beach, 2012-12-18 11:45:48

I called and left this message To Senator Nelson and the Community Organizer in Chief Mr. President You know from your time as a Community Organizer, how difficult life is, for those who must depend on the very stingy hand of the government with its pittance of food stamp aide, its very modest aid to families with dependent children, medicare and senior services. When you consider cutting entitlements think first of the military contracts paid even when their products and services fail, are late, under-perform or even hurt our your service men and women. REDUCE THEIR ENTITLEMENTS FIRST. Let's have the death merchants go begging and hungry shall we? Think of the NUCLEAR Energy Industry and the vast largesse doled out upon them, when you consider entitlements to TRIM. Or think of the rest of Energy Industry who reaps exorbitant profits and still harvests UN-TAXED MILLIONS in TAX REBATES. And finally lets examine the books and look to WALL STREET SPECULATORS for their TAX-PAYER SUBSIDIZED and Undeserved Entitlements. Lets do those cuts before we cut-off Grandma's Stipend or Grandpa's heating allowance. I urge you do not be this century's HOOVER.

— West Palm Beach, 2012-12-18 12:27:53

They said nothing just listened. I asked him to suggest that Sen nelson consider the following revenue enhancements. End the war and occupation of Afghanistan at once savings about 500 Billion 2 Eliminate farm subsidies that benefit BIG Ag companies like Aecher daniels not "farmers" savings 250 Billion over 10 years Cut Defense Budget by 10% by closing 10% of our Over 1000 Military bases around the world and at home. savings 564 Billion over 10 years. Eliminate carried Interest deduction Increase national gas tax by 28 cents a gallon raising $1 Trillion over 10 years End Bush Tax Cuts (Tax deferrments) for everyone 4.5 Trillion over 10 years. Eliminate the ceiling on Social Security taxes (currently 110,000) And make all income taxable Do this while Lowering the rate and business es will benefit as well as middle class wage earners. And this will offset most if not all of what John Boehner complains about the Hike in taxes on the 2% hurting small business. If it costs 2 or 4 % less per employee that will offset a 2% increase in income tax Finally, Institute a National sales Tax collection and make it mandatory to ciollect sales tax on all Internet sales and return it to the states. This will stimulate the economy and produce jobs.

— ft myers, 2012-12-18 12:45:54

Couldn't get him PERSONALLY on the phone. I got an aide who told me he would pass my message along to Sen. Nelson. I made a nice, but VERY firm statement about how I felt and would rather go over the cliff and let Bush tax cuts expire than get deal with Chained CPI on our SS! Asked him to tell Sen. Nelson to vote NO if that was in the deal he voted on.

I did not spoke with him. I spoke with one of his employees and I told her to tell Senator Nelson to use all his power to stop any deals in cutting social security benefits. That I will be retiring next year and after 40 years working I do not want my or my clients social security benefits to be cut.

— MIAMI, 2012-12-18 12:50:00

I told him I support him and asked him to oppose any changes that would result in a decrease in SS benefits to seniors like myself who depend on those benefits to survive

— , 2012-12-18 12:50:07

Nelson better stick with his constituants or feel the pain they will send him by flooding the place with phone cals .

— st cloud, 2012-12-18 12:55:36

Spoke with a staffer, told her before any cuts to SS, Medicare, Medicaid their should be cuts to the Pensions, Benefits even Salaries of House of Reps Memebers, & Senators Pensions & benefits, They should be paying for their own not we the people. I am also a Disabled Senior I had to go on SS early so I already had 30% reduction in my benefits, I am now one of the elderly poor. Reduce ALL Federal Politicians pay and ENTITLEMENTS by 30%.

— Orlando, 2012-12-18 12:56:41

Additionally I requested that no increase in age be agreed to for SS or Medicare. We are a middle-income family and are more willing to have an increase in taxes than cuts to ss or Meidcare. Fix social security, medicare and medicaid - yes. Deal with overbilling, double billing, etc. But after Susan Rice took herself out of the running for Secy of State because of Repub pressure, Obama "should not compromise." (Although I personally believe he will because he did at the beginning of his last term. Why would we expect that he would behave differently now?) Our representatives have been elected to carry out our wishes and I hope they will stand firm. They will relay my comments to Sen. Nelson.

— St Petersburg, 2012-12-18 12:57:20

I spoke to a staff member who indicated that she would give my message to the Senator.

— West Palm Beach, 2012-12-18 13:01:46

He has no position on something that is just conjecture (COLA) for Social Security and Medicare

— Miami Beach, 2012-12-18 13:03:36

telephone staffer is not aware of the latest suggestions to cut social security. i voiced my opinion which she said she would share. i hope it helps.

— GULFPORT, 2012-12-18 13:04:23

I spoke with a member of Senator Nelson's staff and repeated emphatically that my husband and I both are very much against cuts to social security in anyway. He must do everything possible to stop the deal of reported cuts to social security. Respnonse was a young lady advising me should would let him know, she then took my zip code and closed with a thank you.

— North Miami Beach, 2012-12-18 13:05:40

He is not in favor of cuts to social security

— Orlando, 2012-12-18 13:06:45

The lines were busy and hopefully it is calls from like minded constituents opposing changes in social security benefits. Any cuts have a far greater impact among those of us barely getting by than a tax increase for the wealthy.

— Tampa, 2012-12-18 13:08:37

Spoke to a very pleasant staffer. Requested that she please let Senator Nelson not allow cuts to benefits.

Stop Stop Stop

— lake worth, 2012-12-18 13:12:18

I called back for clarification of his position. Nelson opposes cuts to Soc. Sec, Medicare and Medicaid. However, he has no position on what is being floated today since it is not a bill. I made it clear that I am not happy with that answer. I also let her know that I am disabled and cannot afford a cut in cost of living. I also said that I voted for him and donated to his campaign.

— Miami Beach, 2012-12-18 13:13:49

I told them the budget shouldn't be balanced on the backs of seniors and disabled citizens on a fixed income. Also to do something about the NRA and the politicians who fill their pockets with their money, David Rivera, Allen West, Marco Rubio and Mario Diaz-Balart .

— Miami, 2012-12-18 13:14:45

The staffer said she would give my message to Sen. Nelson and that he was opposed to any cuts to these programs. I also mentioned that not only did I vote for Pres. Obama, but that I was a volunteer for his reelection campaign and that if this deal goes through, he is really selling us under the table. She said she would let him know.

The man who answered the phone stated that he would let Senator Nelson know that I called and I am against cuts to SS and that tax rates for the wealthy (250,000) should be raised - not incomes of over 1 million dollars. That is outrageous. Pres. Obama needs to stick to his campaign promises and not back down. This is one reason he was re-elected, to protect those of us who have the most to lose. it is appaling what the Republicans want to do and the election result is a direct correlation between the ethics of both parties.

— Port Charlotte, 2012-12-18 14:19:54

Lets hear something publicly from you supporting not messing with social security.

— Flagler Beach, 2012-12-18 16:29:10

Dear Senator Nelson, I urge you not to vote for cuts in SS for American Citizens. You are well aware of the amounts of dollars issued to the elderly of legal residents who have came to this country to receive benefits but who have never paid one dime into the program. That is certainly an area for congress to look for cuts. There are millions if not billions who receive such funds. Ward Morrow a Florida resident.

— University, 2012-12-18 16:31:08

Please leave social security alone. The people who receive social security earned that money. It is not something to use just because those in charge could not implement programs to manage the budget. The social security monies people worked all of their lives for is not for anyone to touch. This is a disgraceful consideration. Balance the budget; keep it balanced without taking money from people who earned social security. It is not the governments money to use. This is disgraceful. This is stealing from people who have worked hard all of their lives to have a retirement, not for someone in the government to consider it as money they could use.

— Palm Harbor, 2012-12-18 16:31:11

— Brooksville, 2012-12-18 18:30:57

Senator Nelson: Please do NOT do anything that would reduce Social Security benefits for the country's elderly. Add a year before anyone becomes eligible and also withhold FICA tax for anyone earning over 110 thousand dollars a year. Those two moves alone will make Social Security viable for well into the future.

I am strongly against cuts against Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. My parents paid into it their whole lives. They invested in the stock market and lost everything. Now I live with them to help cover their medical bills and care for them. While still maintaining a full time job. How much money can one man spend in a lifetime? Why should the many be made to suffer, so the few can . . . hoard wealthy?!? Stop rewarding greed. Tax the rich. The elderly did their part allow them to retire with electricity, heat, water, shelter, food & free of needless suffering.

— , 2012-12-19 00:02:57

Dear Senator, Please stand strong in your demonstrated commitment to uphold the present and reasonable future basis of Social Security. Cutting into it at this time would create further personal and national real estate disaster while it's hard enough for so many of us even now ! Thank you and God Bless us all !

left a message and stated I would rather :fall of the fiscal cliff" than accept the Republicans proposals. According to AARP SS is fiscally sound until 2033. The changes proposed are unnecessary and will only hurt those who need it most. I explain to Nelson we need to start doing what is right for the country in lieu of caving in to Grover Norquest and his poison.

Do not mess with social security this is hard earned monies that seniors put in all their life.. the seniors have subsidized these monies not the government.. now after all these years of putting money into a program they are going to reduce it.. what kind of minds would do this.. the money is ours not for anyone to decide about cutting the income to people who desperately need it..meanwhile they are fighting who they are going to ask to pay more taxes..people who are earning 250,000 or more that is the worry and the fight over compromise, how dare them use social security as a way to reduce the deficit or negotiate whether the rich should pay more taxes or not..this is a travesty, ahd hopefully any senator or representative that votes against social security will almost for sure will not get reelected.

The lady who answered said that Senator Nelson is opposed to any cuts. I reminded her that most the people in FL are elderly and paid into the system. I also suggested if anyone gets cuts to their benefits, it should be Congress themselves. I forgot to suggest that certain amendment that mandates Congress follow passed laws..requiring them to pay in SS, which would mean they would only strengthen it.

— Tampa, 2012-12-19 08:49:16

Spoke with a female staff member . Very receptive. I told her that since I didn't have money to give, I made phone calls 'til I was hoarse, went home and returned next day and repeated. Then I burned shoe leather registering people to vote; burned more shoe leather door-to-door reminding voters where their precincts were, where to vote early, whether they would need a ride to polls. I walked so much that I was afraid to stop knocking on doors for fear that if I sat down I wouldn't be able to get up again. I believed everything Prez Obama said on the stump. EVERYTHING!!! I told Sen Nelson's staff member that I do not understand why the Prez has not learned from his experiences with the "SAY-NO" rethuglicans, and now that WE the worker bees have proved that we have his back, he seems to be lowering the boom on us slowly, but none the less, lowering the boom on us. We do not like that.

I worked for my SS my whole life, this is MY money and unless the DC people don't want a total shake up in 2014 they NEED to stay away from playing with MY MONEY. Let the rich pay their dues along with the old sour face Repulicans.

we can't afford another cut in ss

— Opa Locka, 2012-12-19 15:33:07

They said nothing as all I could get was message machine. I left a message with my name and said I was opposed to any cuts to Social Security or Medicare as I was soon going to be retired and living off these benefits. Idid not get enough time to state even that amount of money is hard to live on! Qill call and try again.

— Key West, 2012-12-20 05:59:33

I spoke to a staffer, and told her why it would be treason to his constituents if he voted in favor of cuts to Social Security benefits. Also, i reminded her of the recent Bloomberg news poll that most americans are opposed to SS cuts ad in favor of tax increases to those earning more than $250,000. I will also send an email to his web site.

— Miami, 2012-12-20 06:34:21

I left a very passionate message and do believe that Bill will vote against a cut in SS.

— North Fort Myers, 2012-12-20 06:37:41

I spoke with one of Nelson's staff to emphasize that as someone who contributed to his campaign and voted for him, I expect him to protect Social Security. The money in SS does not belong to the government. It belongs to the people who contributed to it. The government has already "borrowed" from it before. That is not right. The staffer took my zip code and said the message would be relayed.

— Holmes Beach, 2012-12-20 06:42:14

We should also go to his website and leave a message there.

— Osprey, 2012-12-20 06:47:23

no comment, but I told them my feelings.

— Clearwater, 2012-12-20 07:38:02

I do not want any deals with Republicans that cut medicare or social security. We have paid for these, CUT YOUR insurance, cut your payments, and raise taxes to the millionaires they do not care about Social security because they do not need it, but we do. - The world doesn't revolve around the 1% of this country... make them pay what they are supposed to... do not understand why Mitt Romney only pays 13% in taxes and I pay 35%... I can't even afford one house and have to pay so much, he has what 5 houses? and only pays 13% REALLY? and you are defending those jerks that screw the country... DONOT cut social security or medicare.

— Sarasota, 2012-12-20 08:30:37

Called today 12/20 and got an answering machine after 10 minutes on hold. I was then told to leave a message since there was no staff person available to answer my call. I left a message asking the Senator to state his position on SS cuts as part of the president's plan. Urged him not to vote for it.

— Venice, 2012-12-20 08:33:04

He doesn't feel SS is causing the deficit. He agree's it shouldn't be touched. I asked staff to relay, "Concider the 28th amendment and explain why washingtons health care is better than 'we the people's' and that it's against the law. Staff person was uncomfortable and had no response.

— Port Charlotte, 2012-12-20 08:36:13

Spoke to staffer and she will pass on my concerns as well as many others she said he was against cut in social security

— St. Petersburg,, 2012-12-20 09:47:47

He avoided my message. Got a recording which he left his web address and said one of his staff would be with me, but I was left hanging. I guess I know where we stand with him. Good luck Sen. Nelson on your next election.

E-mailed Sen. Bill Nelson saying that cuts to SS benefits was a stunning betrayal of the electorate and he should vote against cuts to SS. As yet, I have not received a reply. I will support a primary candidate to ANY Democrat who votes to cut SS in ANY way.

Do not allow cuts to social scurity!

— West Palm Beach, 2012-12-21 06:46:36

I informed Senator Nelson that I did not support President Obama's efforts. Not only is Obama incompetent at negotiating, he seems to believe he is a "moderate Republican." NO DEMOCRATIC MEMBER OF CONGRESS should support the tomfoolery Obama is doing against the interests of the US of A. Obama is supporting the interests of a few rich people and corporations. This ignorance and back stabbing behavior must be opposed. Senator Nelson replied with an unsatisfactory and not thoughtful form letter. Dorian Lucey

— Coconut Creek, 2012-12-21 12:41:02

Called number and received message all circuits busy but I did leave a message that I am greatly opposed to any cuts in Social Security. Also stated I am a Social Worker.

— Pensacola Beach, 2012-12-21 14:52:09

Directed to website where I left this message: Dear Senator Nelson, Social Security, which I had paid into for 51 years when I retired in 2011, does not affect the deficit (watch Ronald Reagan's speech on this if you don't believe me). So why would you cut it to fix the deficit? The chained CPI sounds very much to me like accumulating interest on investments for retirement where a small percentage makes a huge difference down the road. Seniors like myself understand this very well and it is not too technical for us! So forget it! If you want to cut the deficit quit paying welfare to banks and oil corporations and agri-giants. Middle class income and jobs have been slashed and millions of us have lost our homes or lost the equity in our homes while the top 2% have profited from our tax dollars bailing them out and from the stock markets return, and our government continues to increase military spending which has doubled since 911. These are the places you need to cut. Plus everyone should be paying their fair share, not hiding millions overseas or paying workers such low wages that it costs taxpayers billions in welfare to make up the difference, and I am referring here to our biggest welfare queen, Walmart. If you don't think the people who voted for you in November can't see these facts then think again and leave Social security, medicare and medicaid out of your bargain to cut the deficit because they didn't cause it and neither did we, Send the bill to the people and parts of the government that did. Thank you for listening. I voted for you this year because I believe you are a responsible person who will represent my interests as a middle class American. Don't let us down.

— Gainesville, 2012-12-21 18:40:02

Keep your hands off my Social Security. Why dont you cut your pention and benefits. Live in our shoes. HANDS OFF We pay into SS each payroll.

I left a message asking him to oppose both cuts to Social Security and increases to Medicare costs which seniors can little afford.

— Sarasota, 2012-12-23 12:02:12

According to staffer, Senator Nelson is still undecided!!! I find this extremely alarming and left a message for the senator stating his opposition to SS cuts is needed.

— Venetian Islands, 2012-12-26 12:42:23

Sen Nelson staffer stated he has not made up his mind on this issue. Social Security is solvent and has NOTHING to do with the defecit. I left a message stating we need and expect his voice to stand out in opposition to the proposed cuts.

— Miami Beach, 2012-12-26 12:52:51

Left automated message with my name, requesting that no cuts be made to those who receive benefits. I believe when I voted that was clearly our party position. We won. No cuts.

He has always backed social security from any cuts in the past, but at this time until we know exactly what is going to be included in the bill "we really can't answer that yet, but Sen. Nelson has always supported social security in the past."

My democratic senator made it clear he supports a Republican agenda - and is in favor of destroying Social Security. I may as well vote FOR A REPUBLICAN as vote for that filthy-liar. I hope my pseudo-democrat senator drops dead or is shot by some Stand-Your-Ground crazy.
