The social insurance programs that have delivered increased health and financial security to those who need it most are being dealt away in a show of political theater over debt ceilings and corporate greed.
On July 30th, Medicare turns 46. That’s almost half a century of reducing poverty, increasing health outcomes, and keeping administrative costs below 3%.
Combined with Social Security and Medicaid, more people are able to enjoy hard-earned and well-deserved economic and health security.
If you haven’t yet, help us burn up the phone lines in honor of the anniversary of our most beloved social program: Medicare. Protect it. Improve it. Expand it to all.
We can’t let beltway politics rob us of these important programs. Call NOW at 866-220-0044 to connect to your Representative or Senators. Tell them NOT to accept any cuts to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. Instead, improve and expand Medicare for all.
If you don’t know who your elected officials are, click here and we’ll connect you.
In addition to calling our elected officials, you can join up with demonstrations at Congressional offices across the country on Tuesday, July 26th at noon. More information from MoveON here.
And of course Medicare’s Anniversary actions are planned across the country through the end of July.
Calls and in-person actions are most effective right now because of the extreme urgency. However, you can send an email here if calling is not possible.
