By now, you've probably heard about the insulting remarks made by former Wyoming Senator Alan Simpson (R), co-chair of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, describing Social Security as a "milk cow with 310 million tits."
Last month NOW called on President Obama to relieve Simpson of his duties on the commission, while a number of Congress members called for him to resign or be fired. However, the president has yet to ask Simpson to step down. Now, Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) are circulating a letter asking the president to remove Simpson from the commission. They aim to get every Democratic woman member of the House to sign this letter.
Take Action NOW: If your House member is a woman Democrat, please call her or use our message below to urge her to sign on to the Woolsey/DeLauro letter.
