Once again, Republicans are trying to take Washington hostage.
They are demanding cruel cuts to Social Security and Medicare, or else, on March 1 they will detonate the “austerity bomb” of across-the-board spending cuts killing 1 million jobs.
And the President is still pledging his willingness to cut Social Security benefits for today’s seniors by imposing an inaccurate “chained CPI” formula, and to make unnamed Medicare cuts, in return for Republican support for more tax increases.This would be a disastrous deal. It must be stopped. Use the form below to demand your representatives in Washington refuse to vote for any budget deal that cuts Social Security and Medicare.
