From The Other 98% :
I've got some super-exciting news.
We're teaming up with Senator Bernie Sanders TODAY to deliver millions of signatures to the White House and Congress with one message: hands off our Social Security.
And the best part? You can watch it live.
Join us, Bernie, and a broad coalition of progressive allied groups to make it clear that any member of Congress who votes to cut Social Security is voting to end their political career: the video will begin streaming at 12:45 eastern, and you can check for updates starting NOW.
Thank you for all you do to make this movement real.

BTW - what I added when I signed the petition:
I'm asking you, as my Representative in Congress, to support the one-sentence Cancel The Sequester Act, and get back to fixing actual longstanding problems we face back at home.
Get the corpoRAT tax loopholes closed and collect taxes from them - the wealthy successful businesses that are underpaying or even not paying 0r worst actually getting public/government money while not paying taxes.
Go after the 32 trillion hidden in tax havens.
Instead of public austerity - we should be looking into public prosperity.
End the fossil fuel subsidies and redirect into green energy development and implementation.
Get the "People's" government working for the People ALL of the People.
