Tell Congress HANDS OFF our Social Security and Medicare

      Greensburg, PA

In community after community throughout the United States, senior citizens and the disabled depend on social security, medicare, and medicaid to survive from paycheck to paycheck and for critical healthcare needs. We all know these folks, they are our mothers and fathers, our relatives, our neighbors, and our friends.

It has just come out that as part of the ongoing debt ceiling negotiations, the Obama Administration may put cutting social security, medicare, and medicaid on the table for program cuts when negotiating. We owe it as a moral obligation to our senior citizens and future generations of young workers, the middle class, and the disabled to preserve each of these three programs.

Tell Congress, your Senators, and the White House... HANDS OFF our social security, medicare, and medicaid today.

Sincerely,

Westmoreland Young Democrats

      Social Security & Medicare is the BEST ideas government EVER had. Keep it funded by other means if necessary, but keep your greedy republican hands out of it.

      With two disabled parents, it disgusts me to see the attacks on Social Security and Medicaid/Medicare. SS is the only thing keeping my family afloat.

      I depend on Social Security and Medicare. I would be destitute without them.

      I am totally outraged with our politicians at this moment, especially with the House Republicans. America better wake up and recognize what these Neocons are trying to do to this country.

      The only reason any American will lose or have Social Security privatized would be because of simple greed from our Congress. Let's remove the corporations from our welfare roles and put that money into these programs as it is our money anyway, and I know I'm physically ill thinking they get bailouts while my grandmother can't afford groceries, medications, or to see a physician. We want that money back!!! The majority of American people support Social Security and Medicare and do not want them cut. Congress should not be able to mess with any of it as long as we support it. How did they get so far away from the People's will???
