Fight Against Cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

Fight Against Cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

With talks under way between the White House, Senate, and the House, proposals are on the table to cut Medicaid by $100 billion dollars, raise the Social Security retirement age from 65 to 67, reduce the monthly Social Security check, and possibly raise Medicare premiums. We're convening an emergency coalition to save Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security here: http://www.keepourpromise.org

Cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security benefits would hurt tens of millions of Americans. It would also devastate countless hospitals, medical practices, retirement communities, clinics, and the people they serve. Jobs will be lost. Economic growth will suffer. All Americans will endure hardship and pain if these cuts happen. Help us make sure those cuts don't happen.

We demand that our politicians keep our promise between generations and among all Americans to preserve, protect--and even expand and improve--Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.  Help us Save Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. Visit our website regularly, share it on Facebook, Tweet our articles.
