Occasionally elected officials will attempt to intercede on behalf of their constituents, as with this letter from three New York members of Congress. It says in part: "The proposed closing of four Social Security offices -- in Amherst, Bronx Hub, Kingston, and Williamsburg, New York -- threaten the promise Congress made to provide personal assistance to seniors and Americans with disabilities in these areas."

Unfortunately they're up against a majority of their colleagues. Even worse, their cause lacks national champions. This sounds like an ideal election-year issue for Democrats, but so far they've been disappointingly quiet on the subject. Unless something changes, these cuts will take place as scheduled -- with more coming next year.
