I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

The Washington Post is aiding and abetting Donald Trump’s stealth attack on Social Security.

from “Social Security Works”

The Post and the Trump administration are running parallel campaigns to divide the American people―pitting retired workers against people with disabilities―in an attempt to achieve their ultimate goal of dismantling Social Security.

Trump’s Budget Director and Tea Party darling, Mick Mulvaney recently showed his hand in an interview with CNBC when he said: “Do you really think that Social Security disability insurance is part of what people think of when they think of Social Security?”

This is a long-favored tactic of opponents of Social Security who seek to employ a divide-and-conquer strategy.

The Washington Post, in a recent front-page article, attempted to justify the Trump administration’s argument for Social Security cuts by arguing that working-age people in rural America are using Social Security Disability Insurance as a form of unemployment insurance.

But our friends at recently exposed the truth about the Post article―it was based on completely inaccurate data that overcounted the number of Social Security Disability beneficiaries by literally millions.

Not bound by facts, the Washington Post and the Trump administration are using false numbers and an underhanded scheme to divide the American people, cut disability insurance and dismantle Social Security.

It’s time to hold the Washington Post accountable!

Click here to send a letter directly to the Washington Post to demand they retract their false numbers and stop their attack on Social Security beneficiaries.

Donald Trump may have run on a promise to protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, but in his first failed piece of legislation he attempted to gut Medicare and Medicaid to give $1 trillion in tax breaks to the wealthy.

Don’t let the Washington Post give cover to Donald Trump’s attempt to destroy Social Security.

Write to the Washington Post and demand a retraction of the inaccurate and dangerous portrait they are painting of Social Security.

Together, we are holding the media and our elected officials accountable as we fight to protect and expand Social Security for current and future generations.

Thank you,
