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

Said they will pass my message along to the Senator.

Will pass this on to the senator.

Out going Senator Ben Nelson is consistent lately with supporting Dem/Progressive concepts. The woman answering the call agreed that Ben Nelson would NOT alter Social Security. It should be noted that Ben Nelson signed the Grover Norquist "no new tax" pledge.

Was told this senator opposes cuts to medicare, medicaid, and social security.

They will let him know how I feel

— Holbrook, 2012-12-18 09:19:42

Asked them to tell Sen Nelson that I didn't want ANY deals that included any deals that included cuts to Social Security benefits.

— Maitland, 2012-12-18 09:20:21

Told me she would pass my message, to leave our 'SELF~EARNED' programs alone, to the Senator!!

Spokesperson said Senator Nelson will oppose any cuts to social security

— Battle Lake, 2012-12-18 09:31:19

line busy, left message

— Boynton Beach, 2012-12-18 10:05:18

His assistant sounded impatient. I asked if he would get the message personally and would she relay my message verbatim? She assured me that at the end of the day, she gives him all messages and that she would paraphrase my words, which was the script you emailed. She also assured me that he is opposed to cutting social security and Medicare benefits and I assured her that we have his back. She took my name and city info (omaha, ne). Joey Hoffman

Said would pass along the message. Didn't sound too interested in my opinion.

— Lincoln, 2012-12-18 10:45:15

The lady that answered said she would pass my message along to the Senator

— Lincoln, 2012-12-18 10:45:57

The aide I spoke to was very vocal about the Senator's opposition to cutting Social Security Benefits.

— , 2012-12-18 12:32:32

will pass my concerns to the senator

— OMAHA, 2012-12-18 12:39:53

Please stop social security and medicare cuts to the budget.

— AMES, 2012-12-18 12:59:23

Will pass my comments on to the Senator.

— Omaha, 2012-12-18 13:21:35

Talked with a staffer who answered the phone. Ben Nelson is still undecided - so I pledged to call back daily until he does make up his mind. They will pass the message along to the Senator. I also shared that if SS and Medicare, programs that I have been paying into, get cut that I will consider my tax obligations to the federal government paid in full until such a time as the benefits that i have paid into are restored in full.

— South Minden, 2012-12-18 13:59:13

i am on social security and cuts would really hurt

— Omaha, 2012-12-18 14:16:59

The person I spoke to will relay my message to Senator Nelson.

— Lincoln, 2012-12-18 14:37:09

I did not request a total stop but a negotiated graduated cut based on income so lower income people would not be affected at all. the message was to be passed on.

— Fremont, 2012-12-18 14:40:14

please do not make seniors and needy americans pay for this debacle called the fiscall cliff.

— cape coral, 2012-12-18 16:13:06

My husband also called (after hours) and left a message. That is two calls generated because of the email I received!

— Norfolk, 2012-12-18 22:00:02

Senator Nelson, "Do you commit to oppose any benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid? Social Security is not related to the deficit and should not be on the table in current negotiations. Sincerely, Manya Arond-Thomas, M.D.

— Lexington, 2012-12-19 05:36:55

They said they would pass my comments on to Ben Nelson.

— Omaha, 2012-12-19 06:03:42

the person that answered the phone listened to my concerns and was very nice and said he would pass it on.I also mentioned that I read somewhere that the cost of living that we get sometimes (we did receive a small amount for 2013) is being considered to be reduced as well which doesn't make sense as expenses are going up and our s.s. is going down . I worked since high school up to 3 yrs ago (I'm 77) and had to put my share into the fund and I feel like I'm entitled to receive my benefits.

— Omaha, 2012-12-19 08:35:40

The woman that answered the phone said that the Senator is against cuts to medicare, medicaid, and social security. He is in favor of letting the tax cuts for the wealthy expire.

— Lincoln, 2012-12-19 12:39:15

If we take cuts in Social Security congress should take cuts in all their benefits . Such as no retirement until 65 and pay for their own insurance.

— Roscoe, 2012-12-20 12:14:15

The staffer with whom I spoke said that she would pass along my message to the Senator.

— Lincoln, 2012-12-20 13:16:12
