Contribute Now to Tell Congress: No cuts to Medicare
Democrats on the so-called Super Committee are caving to Republican demands and pushing a plan that would make drastic cuts to Medicare.
This is bad policy and bad politics. Cuts like these are the worst possible way to reduce the deficit. They protect the status quo for the richest 1 percent while the 99 percent are expected to sacrifice vital healthcare that they need to survive in tough economic times like these -- and they'll hamstring Democrats running for reelection in 2012.
We've been down this road before. Republicans and some Democrats have been pushing plans to destroy Medicare and Social Security for months.
We beat them before and we'll do whatever it takes to beat them again -- ads, calls to Congress, polling. Please contribute now to give us the resources to fight back and win.
