Long-time opponents of Social Security spun wild yarns about the debt and deficit this summer, and during the run-up to the so-called “fiscal cliff”. Ignoring ten years of war and tax cuts for the wealthy (both purchased on the national credit card), as well as a pandemic of Wall Street greed that nearly sunk the American economy, they pointed their finger at America’s last stronghold of economic safety: Social Security.

Now, one well-known economist has had enough – and he’s visiting Washington state to talk about how to defend and improve Social Security for future generations.

Please join us at a forum to hear economist Dean Baker talk about the challenges and opportunities facing our Social Security system, on February 20 from 5:30 – 7:00 PM at the University of Washington-Tacoma’s Philip Hall.

For more information, please visit http://ssworkswa.org/

Please plan on attending.  Also, please distribute this notice to your organizations and members.  Look forward to seeing you on February 20th!
