Sen. Kerry: Stand with us to protect the most vulnerable in our society!

Unitarian Universalist Congregations all over the Commonwealth of Massachusetts serve those most at risk in some way. We see first hand the impact that the economic down turn has had on people in our community. We see the increased numbers standing in line at our food pantries and soup kitchens, we see more individuals and families looking for housing assistance and we see more people in our homeless shelters.
We ask you to stand with us in love with those most at risk and use your position on the Super Committee to ensure we do not balance our budgets on their backs. Stand with us & Stand strong: Demand shared responsibility. Protect Medicaid and Medicare; don't shift costs to states and the seniors, people living with disabilities and children who rely on these programs.

      I want my country to treat people with respect, to ensure that the richest among us pay their fair share and that nobody goes hungry or without health care. I retire in a few years and will depend upon Social Security and Medicare - please do not cut one cent from these programs which need more funding, not less. thank you.

      We need to let Senator Kerry know that he represents people who share his values of caring for and standing with all, regardless of our place in society.

      The vulnerable in our society need to ne protected by the rest of us. Children, seniors, handicapped and others do no have the resources to take care of themselves.

      How can we say that we are meeting our Constitutional mandate to "promote the general welfare" when so many proposed cuts hurt the most needy and vulnerable among us? Please act to protect those who are dependent on government programs for their well-being.
