Even before the President issued his budget that includes cuts to the social safety net, Congressmen Alan Grayson (D-FL) and Mark Takano (D-CA) had written a letter to the President. In it they respectfully promise to vote against any and every cut to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits -- including raising the retirement age or cutting the cost of living adjustments that your constituents earned and need.
Please sign this petition asking your Illinois Congressional representative to support the people of Illinois by signing the Grayson-Takano letter.
Give your address and zip code, and we can deliver your petition to your representative.
BTW: If a representative has already signed, we will thank him or her.
- Members of Illinois' Democratic Congressional delegation
Take Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security off the chopping block.
As a voter in your district, I urge you to join with over 30 of your colleagues and sign the Grayson-Takano letter promising to vote against any cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits -- including raising the retirement age or cutting the cost of living adjustments that your constituents earned and need.
Democrats built these popular programs. Please declare your intention to protect and improve them as necessary.
