Save Medicare and Medicaid

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Re-elected Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI), wants to cut Medicare as part of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. Ryan has stated that Medicare is approaching bankruptcy, which has been rated by The Washington Post as a four Pinocchio lie. Ryan plans to have the government issue vouchers for recipients to purchase their own private insurance.

As of 2014, 44.9 million seniors and 8.9 million disabled citizens are enrolled in Medicare. They earned their coverage through payroll taxes paid for as long as they were able to work. Why does Congress want to abolish it when Medicare’s costs rise slower than private insurance? Ask your grandparents or your parents, they want to keep their Medicare!

Tell Congress to leave Medicare alone!
