Do NOT cut Social Security or Medicare. Ever. Americans want them expanded!
339 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!
I’m writing because I understand that Republicans are contemplating cuts to Social Security and Medicare. I want you to understand that I—and most Americans—oppose these cuts vehemently.
Don’t believe me? Polls say 82% of voters want Congress to raise Social Security benefits across the board. This includes 83% of Democrats, 73% of independents, and 73% of Republicans. They want to strengthen Social Security and pay for it by making the wealthy contribute their fair share.
And according to a recent AARP poll, 96 percent of those polled regardless of affiliation said Social Security was either the most important government program or an important one compared with other government programs. And 2 in 5 of those surveyed said they will rely on Social Security as a substantial source of income in retirement. More than 69 million people — and almost 9 out of 10 of those 65 and older — get Social Security benefits.
Mess with Social Security and lose my vote. Expand it, and earn my everlasting gratitude and support. That is all. Thanks.
