The mega-millionaires are not wasting any time.
Within days of President Barack Obama’s re-election, a coalition of millionaires and corporate CEOs announced that they are launching a $35 million campaign to strong-arm Congress into cutting Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid benefits under the guise of “fixing the debt.”
Please call your Congressmembers now at 888-659-9401 and tell them to oppose benefit cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Encourage them to end the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2 percent. And don’t forget to sign the petition to the NYS Delegation at www.nysaflcio.org/ProtectOurFuture.
Congress needs to hear this message now. Members are back in Washington DC, ready to make high-stakes decisions on these issues.
