The end of the year will bring automatic cuts to over 1,000 government programs! Including Medicare. Unless the Speaker and House of Representatives get serious about negotiating with the White House. Immediate Action will avert a major fiscal crisis in the United States on December 31, 2012, when the terms of the Budget Control Act of 2011 are scheduled to go into effect. Inaction by the House of Representatives will have devastating effects on average workers, including an automatic 2% tax increase for workers. Medicare, and Defense spending will face "deep, automatic cuts." Every American will be affected because over 1,000 government programs are scheduled for a budget cut.
We demand a leadership willing and able to work on behalf of all Americans, not just a select few or special interest groups. Americans cannot afford another 4 years of stonewalling and inaction by the U.S. House of Representatives. Please work with President Obama and the U.S. Senate to resolve this looming crisis and prevent the suffering of millions of American citizens.
