Subject: Tell Senate Democrats: Absolutely no cuts to Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security benefitsDear Friend,
It's official: There's now a bipartisan consensus on the Super Committee to cut Medicare and Social Security benefits.
The Republicans have a longstanding desire to dismantle Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. But according to recent news reports, a majority of Democrats on the Super Committee just proposed their own plan to reduce the deficit that included slashing Medicare benefits by $200 billion and dramatically reducing future Social Security benefits.
It's hard to imagine how the Democrats on the Super Committee could be any more out-of-touch or wrongheaded.
In the face of massive unemployment, rampant foreclosures, a sputtering economy and widespread anger that the country is systematically prioritizing the needs of the ultra-rich and wealthy corporations over the needs of the other 99% of us, the Democrats who support this plan think the best thing to do is make it harder and more expensive for seniors and the less fortunate to get medical care or pay for their basic living expenses.
Tell Harry Reid and the Democratic senators on the Super Committee: Absolutely no cuts to Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security benefits.
