Right now, President Barack Obama is debating whether or not to embrace Social Security cuts in Tuesday's State of the Union address. President Obama should listen to Candidate Obama, who said "cutting benefits is not the right answer." Hear Candidate Obama's powerful words in the video on the right.

We have only a few days to make sure the President hears from the majority of Americans who agree with what he said then.

Sign this critical petition to the President below and after you have signed the petition, call the White House at 202-456-1111 and say "no to Social Security cuts." Then, please email at least five friends with the link for this petition, and share it on Facebook and Twitter.

PETITION TO PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: REJECT SOCIAL SECURITY CUTS

Please reject the proposal by the co-chairs of your deficit commission to slash Social Security benefits and raise the retirement age.

Social Security has its own financing and does not contribute one dime to the deficit. Social Security has successfully provided secure retirements for 75 years. It is fiscally sound and will never go bankrupt. Yes, work to bring down deficits and spur economic recovery, but don’t cut Social Security, which contributes nothing to the deficit.

I’m also worried that if you embrace proposals to cut Social Security, you will continue to lose seniors and anger future retirees whose retirement security has just been hit hard by the recession. And losing that support would endanger your re-election chances and the rest of your agenda for change.

You have continually fought to protect and strengthen Social Security. Don't stop now.
