Narrow the Gap

Women in the U.S. make 81 cents to the dollar men earn doing the same job.    This clever tool is another brain child of Lifehacker founder Gina Trapani.  This is especially important because a woman who gets paid eight grand less than her male counterpart will ultimately be living on a much smaller Social Security allotment as well.  

Social Security income allows people to live carefully, but with a little dignity and does not contribute a single cent to the federal debt.  

“Social Security benefits are financed only through payroll taxes and the Trust Fund,” Baucus (left) said during a hearing held by his committee entitled “Perspectives on Deficit Reduction: Social Security.” Social Security, he continued, “is not responsible for the deficits we face in the general fund today. Therefore, I believe Social Security should not be part of our efforts to reduce those deficits.”  By law, Baucus said,
Social Security must remain separated from the rest of the Federal budget and the program cannot borrow money from the general Federal budget.”

Please tell Senators Baucus and Tester that cutting our little safety net to give more to the wealthy is stupid and morally wrong.  It would be much kinder and wiser to just let the tax cuts expire.

No deal is better than a bad deal.

No Deal Is Better Than a Bad Deal.
