The Senior Citizens League will collect both online and print petitions and bring a collective voice to members of Congress urging them to reject any budget deal that includes cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
We, the Undersigned, support your efforts to reach a long-term budget agreement that will bring solvency to the nation and prevent a financial meltdown.
However, we refuse to accept any deal that cuts the benefits America’s seniors worked for our whole lives, earned and rely on.
Manipulating the way our cost-of-living adjustments are calculated, raising our premiums or increasing our deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses may look good on a balance sheet, or sound good as part of a backroom deal. But in the real world they affect our lives.
Seniors aren’t bargaining chips, and we refuse to be treated that way!
We urge you to refuse to give your support to any deal that cuts Social Security and Medicare. We will be studying your voting record with interest to ensure you do not sell seniors out in this fight.
Respectfully signed by this concerned citizen:
