Tell President Obama: Jobs, Not Cuts

Tell President Obama: Jobs, Not Cuts

On September 8th, President Obama will give a speech laying out his agenda to create jobs. He is also expected to ask the Super Committee to consider his plan for reducing the deficit by $4 TRILLION. The President was negotiating that plan with House Speaker Boehner in July.

We need to draw a line in the sand now before President Obama makes his speech and tell the White House no cuts to Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.

Petition Text:

Mr. President,

Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are the foundations of our economic security. I am counting on you to spare them from cuts as you and the Super Committee debate ways to reduce the federal deficit. Social Security does not contribute a penny to the deficit. Its benefits should not be cut, including reducing the Social Security COLA. Medicare is a sacred trust. Medicaid is crucial for seniors, women, children and people with disabilities. Please stand strong with working families.
