Social Security and Medicare At Risk: Stop Harsh Cuts
At this moment, Speaker Boehner is crafting a deficit deal that would gut Medicare and Social Security, while slashing benefits for seniors and the middle class in order to make sure he protects tax breaks for millionaires.
This is unacceptable and House Democrats will not stand for this.
We need to show our strength on this issue with one, unified voice -- and time is critical. Take action right now and join House Democrats in declaring that Social Security and Medicare cuts are off the table.
Time is running short. If we don’t stand up against these radical cuts right away, decades of progress could be lost.
We must not balance the budget on the backs of seniors, women and people with disabilities.
Social Security and Medicare are vital programs that Americans pay into with the knowledge that they will receive the rightful services they are entitled to.
I join House Democrats in declaring that Social Security and Medicare cuts are off the table.
