NCDC Democratic triad powerhouse.
Some important issues were discussed not least of which was the NCDC's adoption of a Social Security resolution re-printed below with permission of the Committee. DINO-Joe and you other Democraticans (or is it Republicrats?) disregard at your own peril and it could be a career ending decision.
Resolution adopted and approved by NCDC, 24Mar2005;
Whereas Social Security( here after SS) is the most successful domestic program n Amercian history, having provided a guaranteed retirement safety net for millions of Americans since 1935, and
whereas current Congressional Budget Office projections report the trust fund will remain solvent through 2052, afterwards covering 81% of promised benefits, with no change to the program, while transition costs alone for abandoning SS in favor of private accounts are estimated at $2T ( that's two trillion dollars), and
whereas the so called "crisis" in SS is a manufactured scare tactic intended to bolster President Bush's plans to replace SS with an unstable market-based system,
Be it resolved the the North Country Democratic Committee of New Hampshire opposes any effort to phase out and'or replace SS, in whole or in part, in favor of a private accounts based system, and
Resolved that the North Country Democratic Committee of New Hampshire will not support ficancially any Democratic candidate who expresses support for, advocates for or votes for such a plan.
Like I said, this group is serious about taking back their Government for the people. I'd like to be a fly on the wall when this collective voice of North Country workers gets down to the Flatland and flexes their muscle to the party heads. No more binnez as usual. There's a new crew in town. I can't wait for the mid-terms. Cha...ching!
