Until They Get the Point: "Oppose Any Cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid!"
The agreement by the U.S. House and Senate to fund the government until January 15, and to raise the debt ceiling through February 7 is good news, but it leaves us with a new deadline for tough decisions – December 13th. A ‘grand bargain’ that would cut Social Security and Medicare would be a “Grand Betrayal."
Our messages continue to make a difference. We’ve done it before and we’ll do it again – until they get the point! We call on Congress to oppose any cuts in Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid benefits, including the chained CPI or any shifting of health care costs onto Medicare beneficiaries!
