Forum Post: Massive protest after SS increase?

Is anyone planning a massive protest on Washington to remove current members of congress after this social security tax increase?

It's not that the tax increase itself warrants removal, but this just seems like the straw that broke the camel's back. It's too much! Today I found out that, including a raise this year, I am now making less than I was this time last year! It wouldn't be so bad if grocery prices weren't still going up and if the government still didn't have tax cuts for the wealthy. But they are and they do.

Any big protests planned?

Would you attend?

I would definitely attend! That's why I'm asking if there's a group being organized that's planning on doing this. There needs to be a large group so that we're not overlooked and so that we're heard.

Yeah no reason to be heard before huh? We don't want to prevent the cut, just complain about it afterwards.

Good plan!

After? Is that a joke? How about a massive protest to agitate all pols to remove the ss payroll tax cap.

That's the answer.
