When you asked the Senator if they would do everything in their power to stop this deal if it includes the reported cuts to Social Security benefits, what did they say?

What Other MoveOn Members Are Hearing

I called with the no cuts to social security message, and the staff said they'd pass it on to Sen. Akaka. Thank you fir your great wirk!

— Waianae, 2012-12-18 09:12:33

Please protect our Social Security income.

— Kailua Kona, 2012-12-18 09:21:07

I know he is against cuts. I figured the more people who call the better sense he has of his constituency.

— Kihei, 2012-12-18 09:31:11

An aid said that he couldn't tell me Senator Akaka's position on this. But that they are receiving many calls like mine & are keeping him informed.

— Pahoa, 2012-12-18 10:18:52

We paid into it for decades. Why don't theyjust pull a gun on us and demand our wallets as well? Who needs the Middle Class anyway?

— Kaneohe, 2012-12-18 10:49:12

"I can't speak for the Senator but if you give me your zip code I will pass on yourm message to Sen. Akaka."

— Princeville, 2012-12-18 11:01:03

I also called and the staff member that answered the phone stated that he will make sure Sen. Akaka got the message, and that his phone was ringing off the hook regarding this from MoveOn members and others. Great work folks!

— Seabrook Island, 2012-12-18 11:04:12

The aide who responded said she would pass my request on to Senator Akaka. Thank you for your work on this important issue!

— Maunaloa, 2012-12-18 11:15:38

Spoke with an aide, who promised to take note of my concerns about making no cuts on Social Security Medicare 'paid benefits' (not entitlements). Explained that I am on disability and soon to go onto Medicare and so many, like, me have paid in over many years and strongly rely on these to remain intact in order for us to live. Aide requested my zip code and said the Senator would be informed of my call.

— Kihei, 2012-12-18 11:45:03

I said I knew Senator Akaka was a champion of social security and wouldn't support cuts, but I wanted them to know my husband and I thought Obama's newest proposal that seems to include cuts to cost of living increases for Social security was a really bad idea. He said thank you for the call and he would pass it on to Senator Akaka. I'm sure he agrees.

— Pukalani, 2012-12-18 12:01:51

A staff member thanked me for calling.

— Hanalei, 2012-12-18 12:02:47

Talked to aide who is sympathetic. Sen Akaka recently made strong comments about not making these cuts. However he will retire at end of Dec. I have called Congresswoman and Sen. Elect Hirono. Though I just talked to an aide, she is very likely to support this position (no cuts).

— Kaneohe, 2012-12-18 12:14:05

A very positive response and I hope he does his best. Clearly they are getting a lot of calls! Good thing too...

— Honolulu, 2012-12-18 12:28:35

They appreciate the call. Of course I gave my condolences for Senator Inoye. I pleaded not to make any cuts to our Medicare & SS. Obama can push Boehner back. He knows he can. He's just got a lot to deal with rt now.

— st.Helena, 2012-12-18 12:32:16

I spoke with a staffer who will report my request.

— Honolulu, 2012-12-18 12:40:12

We never talk directly to this Senator. Maybe Mazie will be more responsive. Aloha

— Kapa'au, 2012-12-18 13:03:31

Won't say which way he will vote on the budget "deal".

— Waialua, 2012-12-18 13:18:44

Yes...they would!

— Marina del Rey, 2012-12-18 13:37:53

I called and asked that Senator Akaka oppose any cuts to Social Security.

— Kapaa, 2012-12-18 13:55:34

They said that this has been going on for a long time. She spoke like a republican almost saying yes, that’s what is going to happen. Obama is going to do this. oh boy here is is from our own guy giving away the pot again...

— Pembroke Park, 2012-12-18 14:16:12

spoke eto his assistnt who said she would be sure to let him know my serious concerns. that was all she could promise.

— Pahoa, 2012-12-18 14:25:57

I called to request no cuts to SS. I talked to a young lady and she asked me for my zip code and that was it.

— Waianae, 2012-12-18 14:46:18

I called and left a message hopefully a human will call me back!. Enough is enough! Punishing the poor and enabling the rich while children are slaughtered in our schools because of gun lobbies and inadequate funds for mental health services.....I don't think so! Makaha 2012-18-12

— Waianae, 2012-12-18 15:21:20

Protect my right to social security benefits !!!

— Honolulu Hi. 96813, 2012-12-18 17:58:08

Social Security has nothing to do with the debt. Tell the Republicans to keep their hands OFF of S.S.

— Captain Cook, 2012-12-18 19:39:36

Called: Not even a voice mail to leave a message.

— Kailua Kona, 2012-12-18 21:01:53

No answer after 30 rings I hung up. Sen Inouye died today, so that may have resulted in staff closing the office. Dr. Akaka is also stepping down soon.

— Kaneohe, 2012-12-19 01:47:39

Clerk said she would pass my comments along to the Senator.

— Holualoa, 2012-12-19 08:57:15

As usual, staffer won't say what Akaka's position is, but I can tell they are getting a lot of calls

— Kailua-Kona, 2012-12-19 11:26:05

Aide put in information and request. Said he was unauthorized to disclose Senator's opinion on this matter.

— Honolulu, 2012-12-19 13:05:17

Please keep the Social Security from being cut... THanks so much for all you have done for Hawaii and the main land .... Am so sorry about Senetor Anoye, Thank you for you help.. ALoha, Dianne
