The debt ceiling package recently signed into law by President Obama created a Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (Super Committee). This committee is tasked with identifying $1.5 trillion in cuts with the supposed goal of reducing the federal deficit.
Members of the committee claim that “everything is on the table.”
The committee will be looking at our most important social insurance programs – Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security – as targets for cuts.
Demand the Super Committee prioritize the preservation of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security and focus on finding a means of balancing the budget that doesn’t harm working families.
We need an improved Medicare-for-all system to guarantee the healthcare we need and get the economy back on track.
Tell your Representative to take Medicare and Medicaid off the table to sign sign on to Rep. John Conyers’ resolution 72.
