Action Alert: State of the Union

Tonight, President Obama will deliver the State of the Union Address to those who are anxiously waiting to hear what he will say about Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

While President Obama has stated he will not urge cuts to Social Security in his speech tonight, a narrowly defeated proposal by the Deficit Commission to cut these programs means we have to continue to be vigilant.

Leaders in Congress are still seeking to privatize Social Security and turn Medicare into a voucher program, claiming it will save money.

Tell President Obama “No cuts, no privatization, and no raising the eligibility age of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid” on his watch.

Email President Obama here. Or call the White House at 202-456-1414.

The vast majority of Americans support increasing taxes on the rich to fund these programs rather than cut them.

Make your voice heard. Email President Obama here. Or call the White House at 202-456-1414.
