John Boehner is calling for cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid this spring claiming these programs aren’t sustainable.
The only thing unsustainable is the parasitic greed of the corporations and a Congress complicit in supporting them. Just a few weeks ago Congress approved huge tax cuts to the wealthy, and now we have to pay for them by cutting essential social programs.
Let’s be clear, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are not responsible for adding money to the deficit. Corporate greed and out-of-control military spending are.
Help us get our message to Speaker Boehner about the human cost of these cuts.
To continue our “Will You Cry for Me, John Boehner?” campaign, we need your financial support. For every $30 you donate to Healthcare NOW! we will deliver a box of tissues to Speaker Boehner.
Already 423 people have submitted testimonials about how the healthcare crisis has hurt them or their families through bankruptcy, illness, and loss. We plan to deliver each story to Speaker Boehner.
Congress should join with the majority of people who support: taxing the rich to reduce the deficit; a national, universal, and equitable single-payer healthcare system; and strengthening Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, not weakening them.
