Oh for fuck’s sake:
Dear MoveOn member,
Last year, President Obama offered Republicans a heartbreaking deal that would have slashed Social Security benefits by $112 billion over a decade. MoveOn members overwhelmingly opposed it. And together with allies, we won.
Hahaha. Sure you did. And as I recall, you spent your entire war chest in the service of re-electing—unconditionally—the same president who offered “a heartbreaking deal that would have slashed Social Security benefits by $112 billion over a decade.”
Now, here’s the state of play. Over the weekend, faced with Republican obstructionism, the president once again—and more clearly than ever—offered to put our social safety net on the negotiating table.
OMFG I AM SO SHOCKED!
We have a plan to launch an ambitious push, with allies inside and outside of Congress, to oppose any benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.
The time for your “ambitious push” was before the November election. Idiots.
Can you chip in $5 to fund our emergency campaign to save the social safety net?
Um, no. But just FYI, I chipped in a whole lot more than that to Jill Stein’s presidential campaign.
Ambitious pushes = Ur doin’ it rong.
