127 corporations that want to "Fix the Debt" by gutting your retirement

We're grateful for author Gaius bringing mention of this to the fore. However, the major component is absent - the adhesive, the Super-Glu binding these frauds together under a cloak of "public service" is Peter G. Peterson, one of the grand masters of the Conspiracy:  Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations. We do not count him among America's greatest allies or patriots. Certainly no friend of individual liberty!

The Campaign to Fix the Debt is the latest incarnation of a decades-long effort by former Nixon man turned Wall Street billionaire Pete Peterson to slash earned benefit programs such as Social Security and Medicare under the guise of fixing the nation's "debt problem." Through this special report -- and in partnership with The Nation magazine -- the Center for Media and Democracy exposes the funding, the leaders, the partner groups, and phony state "chapters" of this $60 million "astroturf supergroup," whose goal is to achieve a grand bargain on austerity by July 4, 2013.[1]

We urge you to see the beneficial interlocks that "Fix the Debt" has set up for their corporatist allies colluding with government at your expense. GO HERE

127 corporations that want to “Fix the Debt” by gutting your retirement

The CEOs of the following corporations don’t think they have enough money — perhaps because they don’t have it all. So they got together a little group called “Fix the Debt” to cobble up some more. The source of their added wealth? Your government retirement and medical insurance programs. You know, Social Security and Medicare. ‘Cause all your money aren’t yet belong to them; you still have some left.

I wrote about Fix the Debt earlier, the truly bipartisan group that wants Obama to do what he also wants to do, reduce the safety net. The following is a list of corporations who are driven by their millionaire and billionaire CEOs to help him get ‘er done.

The source is the amazing group SourceWatch. Also amazing — the list itself. Take a gander:
