Beth Neilsen Chapman:
Cuts in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security hurt PEOPLE. Raising tax rates on the wealthy is just money. They do not equate, do not trade them. Please join Monday’s big, national event and add your voice.
The “Lame Duck” — unelected — Congress is deep in negotiations over the ‘fiscal cliff.’ Republicans are holding us hostage again, Some lawmakers are pushing a deal that includes steep cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, and more tax breaks for the richest 2%.
We voted to end tax cuts for the wealthy in November. We voted not to cut Medicare and Social Security for We, the People.
Monday, December 10th is International Human Rights Day, and all across the country, workers, seniors and supporters will be standing up for their rights at a series of vigils and actions to say NO to cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, and NO to extending tax cuts for the richest 2%.
Working families across the country are coming together to tell their members of Congress:
– NO tax cuts for the richest 2% of Americans;
– NO benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid.
