Defend Medicare from Republican Attacks

Defend Medicare from Republican Attacks

    1. Sponsored by

      Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee

Radical Republicans in the House want to end Medicare. Senate Democrats have the votes to stop them, for now. But if Republicans gain just four Senate seats, we’ll lose our ability to save Medicare.

More than 130,000 people have signed our petition, but we can’t let up. We must oppose every Republican effort in the Senate to destroy our nation’s safety net.

Sign our petition and stand against GOP efforts in the Senate to destroy Medicare.

I won’t stand by silently as radical Republicans destroy Medicare and shift money to the wealthy and corporations in the form of huge tax cuts. I stand with Democrats to protect Medicare.

      Without Medicare, we'll be well on our way to being a third world country.

      I lived without health care for many years after losing my job. My health deteriorated rapidly as a result. If I hadn't finally received Medicare, I'd be dead. Medicare is a lifeline for millions. Please don't squeeze the poor any more.

      Medicare is a deduction that is taken out of our paychecks to provide for our care if we become disabled and when you retire. I REFUSE to let the RICH REPUBLICAN ELITE [who do not have a clue what it is like to be part of the 99%] TO STEAL MY OWN MONEY WHICH WAS DESIGNATED FOR MY MEDICAL CARE AND DEDUCTED FROM MY paychecks. Support this effort and the AARP. Do not allow cuts to programs that you paid into which were intended to provide medical care for the disabled and senior citizens of the USA! STOP WASTING OUR MONEY ON WAR! Heal the nation!!

      Why does the GOP want to destroy the safety net, our safety net?? Can't they see how un American it is to even think that medicare and social security should be discontinued or changed/reduced in any way?? Shame on the thoughtless and heartless Tea partying GOP!!! Our men and women served this great country of ours, came back to a country that didn't always make them feel welcome, worked long difficult hours in the factories, mills, and refineries etc. so they could raise families and now the GOP wants them all to go away and die!! How is that possible??

      Medicare is the only way many of our elderly Americans receive any healthcare at all, other than going through the E.R. Ending this program is a ploy to kill off what members of the senate consider dispensable. Just one of many reasons Republicans should be ashamed.
