The fact is that President's Fiscal Commission continues to debate cuts to Social Security as a means to reduce the deficit. We all need to stand together and protect Social Security from budget-driven cuts.
Coming from anyone these comments would be over the line. But what makes them more offensive is Senator Simpson's position: co-chair of President Obama's Fiscal Commission, which is currently considering changes to Social Security as a solution to reduce the deficit. How can a commission led by Sen. Simpson fairly make recommendations on the future of important programs like Social Security?
