New Years Resolution to Defend Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

We the undersigned call on all candidates and members of Congress to join our New Year’s Resolution, to defend Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare against any attempts to cut benefits or negotiate them away in 2012.

Why is this important?

The Republicans’ relentless assault on the American Dream hasn’t stopped in 2011 - every day, Republicans try a new code word or political maneuver to destroy Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid - the programs that built the middle class in this country. Working families rely on these programs every day. We oppose any attempts to balance the budget on the backs of the 99% of us - seniors and working families who have been struggling in this recession.
