Minnesotans + Social Security

The AFL-CIO Working Families group sent out this info about how Bush's Social Security plan affects Minnesotans:

Seventy percent of Minnesota's Social Security recipients--535,367 Minnesotans--would lose an average of about $258 a month if the latest Social Security benefit cuts President George W. Bush proposes were in full effect today. That's $3,091 less each year for basics like food, medicine and utilities.* And that's for workers who DON'T sink part of their Social Security money into risky, privatized accounts.
