Tell the politicians "Hands off Social Security and Medicare!"


The latest brainchild of the GOP and Conservadems is to cut the deficit by poaching off the needy and disabled people in our society by cutting Social Security and Medicare. This is wrong and again shows just how pathetically out of touch our elected representatives are with the American people.

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
President of the United States
The growing movement to cut Social Security and Medicare as a means of cutting the deficit shows how pathetically out of touch you are with the needs of the American people. Instead of cutting Social Security, particularly in these horrendous economic times, you might consider ending the costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that have bankrupted our nation and, by the way, made us much less secure. Then, you can improve the situation more by reducing the bloated defense budget, and allowing the Bush tax cuts that benefit the top 1% of the population to expire.

If you really want to help the American people, you can start by looking at yourselves and finding ways to improve your own performance, rather than cut programs that have been successfully helping people for years.
