Tell the Vice President: No Cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid

Republicans are holding the economy hostage again, threatening to destroy America's credit rating so they can get brutal cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. In poll after poll, the American Majority repudiates the Republican obsession with decimating our retirement security. There's no reason to cut a bad deal. Vice-President Joe Biden is leading negotiations, right now, with the Republican hostage-takers. We need to send him a message that if he stands firm against cruel cuts, the American Majority will stand with him.

Dear Vice-President Biden,

I urge you to stand firm against the Republican demands to cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid in your debt limit negotiations. There is broad consensus around a job-first approach to reducing our debt: investing in stimulus now to grow the economy, raising taxes on millionaires, ending oil subsidies and cutting wasteful military spending, on top of the health care reforms already enacted that are expected to save hundreds of billions. And there is little or no support for cutting Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. Stand strong for us in the middle class, and we'll be there for you.
