As Clarion goes to press, news reports abound that President Obama is discussing an agreement with Republicans that would reduce future Social Security cost-of-living adjustments and make beneficiaries poorer over time.
This is not what we voted for in November, 2012. Please call your Congressmembers now at 888-659-9401 and tell them to oppose benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Encourage them to end the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2%. And don’t forget to sign the petition to the NYS Delegation.
Congress needs to hear this message today. Senators and Representatives are back in Washington, DC, ready to make high-stakes decisions on these issues.
