Tell President Obama: Don't cut Social Security and Medicare benefits

Dear Friend,

According to the New York Times, President Obama is poised to propose
cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits in the budget he’ll
unveil on Wednesday.

It’s really hard to fathom why the president is working so hard to
preemptively cave on these core issues. There is nothing smart, tough
or pragmatic about proposing policies that will push more seniors into
poverty. And this is especially the case when the proposed policies
are deeply, deeply unpopular.

Cutting benefits is opposed by an overwhelming majority of Americans.
And if the American people really wanted a president who would start
to dismantle our Social Security system or cut Medicare benefits, it’d
be Mitt Romney in office, not Barack Obama.

Tell President Obama: Benefit cuts are wrong, and they’re not what we
voted for. Click the link below to sign the petition.
