Dear MoveOn member,
If you want to understand the fight over Social Security cuts that ended last week (we won!), you’ve got to hear this podcast.
We’ve put together what might be the clearest and most entertaining explanation of the battle that you can find anywhere. It’s a story that goes a lot deeper than what you might have read in the paper. And it’s online now, free.
Yes! I want to hear the inside story of the Social Security battle.

This is no dry policy debate. This is a story of Wall Street billionaires, Tea Party obstructionists, grassroots progressives—and an Obama administration trying to find its way. It’s the real story behind the constant clashes over the debt ceiling, the deficit, and the so-called grand bargain. And it’ll leave you cheering.
Joining us is a guy who was at the center of it all. We interviewed Alex Lawson, the charmingly fired-up wonk-activist who, working behind the scenes, led a citizen coalition—including MoveOn members like us—to challenge the idea that there was any good reason to propose Social Security cuts. In fact, we argued, Social Security should be expanded.
You’ll love not only Alex’s energy but also his bracingly insightful point of view. Even on an issue that might feel intimidating or complex, things look pretty clear when you’re David aiming your slingshot as you look up at Goliath.

This is a story that all of us are part of. MoveOn members and our allies have stood strong in the conviction that nobody in this country should have to work for a lifetime and wind up in poverty. The fight goes on, of course, as it always does. But there’s something deeply gratifying about being on the right side of history.
Thanks for all you do.
P.S. “The Good Fight” is a MoveOn-backed podcast and radio show about people changing the world. Since launching a few months ago, we’ve hit the No. 1 spot on the podcast charts, been named one of Apple’s best podcasts of 2013, and interviewed guests from Senator Al Franken to Sister Simone Campbell, the nun who helped save Obamacare. Our goal: tell the inside stories of the fights behind the headlines, introduce you to the heroes and villains shaping politics, and inspire more people to get involved.
