What Other MoveOn Members Are Hearing

aide says she hasn't discussed this with him, but will see he gets the message

— Westover, 2012-12-18 08:21:47

please,please,please, do not let the republicans convince you that cutting social security or cutting the COLA for S.S. would help the deficit cause it won't.S.S. doesn't add one cent to the deficit and should not even be in the discussion for the fiscal cliff. Raising the age of medicare or cutting any of those benefits would be disastrous to seniors.

— Prairie View, 2012-12-18 09:26:01

Senator Manchin's aide said will pass on message.

— Charleston, 2012-12-18 09:34:36

I called and left a message and my phone number...maybe he will call back.

I do not think that the nation's debt should be balanced in any way by considering Social Security an entitlement. It is an earned benefit, and I would urge Democratic leaders to use the correct term in discussing these matters. It is a dynamic program that requires adjustments every so often to continue its solvency. SS will be solvent for many more years and we have plenty of time to re-adjust it to protect its operations. In addition, SS has not in any way affected or caused the nation's indebtedness and therefore should not be cut in any way during this lame duck session negotiation. We did not give our daily efforts to elect democrats to see this happen. The only issue that might be included in this session is eliminating SS benefits to the very wealthy who don't actually need the funds to live but accrue them to increase their wealth. Currently most of them decline to eschew the benefits as they can easily do on the SS website by opting out. So the very rich who want to complain about SS are also benefiting from it. If you are going to in any way cut these earned benefits set an income limit for receiving the benefits or the very wealthy should either be ineligible or taxed at a much higher rate on those benefits. At the very least everyone should be required to pay in. Please do not compromise on SS benefits for the majority of older people. Medicare does deserve to be looked at for better administration and cost-cutting but I do not support specific cuts in Medicare being guaranteed in this fiscal cliff negotiation either. More care should be taken with any Medicare negotiation. Take away the mortgage benefit for second houses. Tighten up the excesses of tax deductions that include things like private jets and other similar unnecessary deductions brought to us by lobbyists favoring corporate entities and the richest among us who are addicted to the subsidized greed of their own prosperity. I do not trust the republicans in Congress many of whom currently serve due to the gerrymandering of their electoral redistricting to ensure their own power. They have not demonstrated that they are ready to support the will of the majority of American voters.

Message was to Stop the cuts in Social Security. Remember the WV citizens who voted him the privelege to be their Senator and speak for them

— Huttonsville, 2012-12-18 09:47:05

Clay took message, will pass it to sen. I left my address to get a response.

— Valley Grove, 2012-12-18 09:58:40

Secretary said he supported not cutting Social Security. A lawyer friend of mine told me long ago that he was a republican in everything but name. I don't trust him.

— White Sulphur Springs, 2012-12-18 09:58:54

Spoke with aide, who said he will give him the message.

— Winfield, 2012-12-18 10:02:47

Aide said he would pass the message on .

— Moundsville, 2012-12-18 10:14:01

No Cuts to S.S., Medicare-Medicaid.

— Wittmann, 2012-12-18 10:14:22

aide will pass message along

— Charleston, 2012-12-18 11:09:01

Left message with aide and he will tell Joe Manchin.

— LAS VEGAS, 2012-12-18 12:03:21

The aide said he would report my message of no cuts to the Senator

— agoura hills, 2012-12-18 12:23:00

Secretary said she will pass the message along. I said his constituents are watching and expect the Senator to take a strong, bold stance and be the leader we elected him to be, not backing down in the crowd of concessions. He will long be remembered for his vote on social security. We need public policy makers to not disconnect from what the citizens of this country want amd need.

just got a recording

— HUNTINGTON, 2012-12-18 13:01:29

left a message Not to touch social security with his staffer, who said will pass it on to the senator.

— White Plains, 2012-12-18 13:52:37

I was only able to speak with a male staff worker.. he stated that he hadn't had an opportunity to speak with the Senator about this particular issue.

— Lewisburg, 2012-12-18 14:09:06

Staff said he wants to protect social security and medicare.

— Hayward, 2012-12-18 14:18:40

Told him for the VeryFIRST Time I was proud of him concerning gun control and that we need to educate what gun control means.

— Saint Albans, 2012-12-18 15:22:51

Do not cut benefits or I will work to replace you with people who will stand with the less among the population.

— Stockton, 2012-12-18 23:11:01

the Senator is working on the issue as we spoke.

— Williamstown, 2012-12-19 06:26:44

Aide will pass message on to the Senator

— Harpers Ferry, 2012-12-19 09:32:51

Please Send to: Member of Congress and the Senate Social Security Pledge I, ________________, as a Member of Congress or the Senate Pledge to never cut Social Security. I will not lower Social Security by using a chained- CPI. I will never insult the intelligence of the United States Citizens on how the chained- CPI is more accurate for a population that is already buying the cheapest products already. I will not use any stupid statements like the following: “The Chained- CPI uses the effect of consumer substitution as people change from consuming goods that increase rapidly in price to goods with less rapid price increases.” I know that people on Disability and those whom live on only Social Security don’t have the option of buying cheaper products, because they are shopping at the Dollar Store NOW! The only way I as a Member of Congress or the Senate would think about a Chained- CPI is if it counted ALL THE PRODUCTS That the DISABILLED and OLDER Americans use, increasing their yearly income. I Pledge to NEVER tell people that can’t afford steak that they can switch to chicken. If I become of a lower intelligence and think that the Chained – CPI works I will quit the Congress or Senate, because if I am stupid enough to believe that it works then lets just say that the Brooklyn Bridge is worth 50 Trillion Dollars and now we have a surplus. Please if you can believe it works then PLEASE do this Great Nation a SURVICE and QUIT. Name _________________, Sign here; ______________ Thank you, Jon E.

— Altamonte Springs, 2012-12-19 12:22:46

At 202-224-3954 I got Harry Reid's office. If this gets to Joe Manchin, we need him to firmly reject any present and future reductions to senior SS or medical coverage. If it must go over the cliff to convince the republicans that the message in the vote in November was absolutely get the rich to pay their share and do not touch SS for their benefit. That was absolutely what my vote was for.

Save Medicare & Social Security!

— Trinity, 2012-12-19 13:49:02

Dear Sen. Machin - please do not alter benefits as it affects mostly poor people and retired people on fixed incomes. My income is $768 a month. I do qualify for food stamps of $30 monthly. My average money spent on food is approximately $45 a week. I dare you to live on that; I do, but barely. Most of my expenses are utility related and they are always increasing! I am so angry about what is going on in Washington. STOP SPENDING!!! Please do not change Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid as this will cause much suffering of those who can least afford it. People who are well off will just have to cut back a little, unlike those of us on a fixed income will be forced to cut back to the point where eating every other day will become the norm. Respectfully, Diane Brown

What is wrong with the senate and the congress and the president? you give billions to dictator's and you want to steal from the elderly , the children and the disable. Would you borrow money to feed a person that want's to destroy us and then let your family go hungry? That is exactly what you are doing. While here I have another question. Why did our leadership vot for Obama care that will force us to take the RFID CHIP IMPLANT?
