Sometimes our representatives in Washington lose their way.
It’s as simple as this: America needs good jobs, not more healthcare cuts.
Democratic and Republican members of the congressional “Super-Committee” are poised to cut Medicare and Medicaid rather than end tax giveaways for big corporations and millionaires.
But cutting healthcare programs is the wrong way to go to trim the budget deficit. Call your member of Congress and tell them to focus on creating jobs, not gutting the programs that so many Americans rely on for their healthcare and their livelihoods.

Recent news reports say that these members of Congress are reviewing proposals that include staggering cuts to Medicaid and Medicare to the tune of $500 billion or more.
Cuts of this magnitude would be a terrible deal for 99% of Americans and especially disastrous for seniors, people with disabilities and children who rely on these lifesaving healthcare services. America’s middle class is hurting. Instead of cutting healthcare and cutting jobs, it’s time for Congress to ask millionaires and big corporations to do their part in reducing our nation’s deficit.
