White House still holding Social Security hostage:

The best thing you can do right now is write letters to your congress critters and/or your local papers, since as venal as they are, they still have to worry about getting reelected

.

I think that letters to the editor is even more important since congressional press secretaries watch letters to the editors.

When… members of Congress get generic letters to their offices saying, “Why are you cutting education”, it just rolls off them like water off a duck’s back… What they’re not prepared for is the specific critique in their local news. So to really put a member of Congress on the spot, send a letter to the editor on of your local paper explaining how his or her vote actually hurts your town or state. That’ll get to them faster than an oil company lobbyist.
