Obama: $400 Billion in Safety Net Cuts
President Obama’s opening position on a “cliff deal” includes $400 billion in “savings” (cuts) to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security over ten years.
This is unacceptable.
We can’t allow any deal to pass that threatens Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. We know improved Medicare-for-all is the solution–it would save Medicare, halt out-of-control healthcare costs, ease the deficit pressure, and bring universal healthcare to the nation.
Single-payer supporters have already sent in nearly 10,000 emails and phone calls to Congress. And right now we’re organizing coordinated actions and lobby visits around the country the week of December 10 (International Human Rights Day).
Every dollar of your generous donation will go towards purchasing campaign materials and furthering our outreach to new allies in the movement.
If you can spare $20, we’ll send you a Healthcare-NOW! bumper sticker and 1.5 inch button.
A $40 donation will get you a copy of John Geyman’s brand new book Health Care Wars: How Market Ideology and Corporate Power Are Killing Americans.
And for $50 or more we’ll send you a beautiful Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. poster with his quote: “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhumane.”
For check and/or tax-deductible donations, make a check out to “IFCO/Healthcare-NOW!” and mail it to 1315 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107.
These threats to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are real. But we can stop them with your help.
Please support Healthcare-NOW! and our hundreds of single-payer activists all over the country today.
