Despite what we heard on the campaign trail about protecting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Donald Trump’s transition team, cabinet and members of Congress seem to have other ideas. They want to dismantle Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security even though this program protects nearly 60 million grandparents, parents, children, veterans and Americans with disabilities from poverty! It’s time to fight back.
The California Alliance for Retired Americans (CARA) is hosting a National Day of Action today to call Congress.
Together, we can tell Congress to keep their hands off Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid! We need to act to protect and expand these programs, not cut benefits.
National CALL-IN Day to Congress – January 4
Hands Off Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security
Protect, Improve and Expand these Programs – NO Cuts
Call your Congressional Representative at 866-828-4162 today and tell them:
My name is ___________________ and I am a constituent from your district. I am calling to tell you that I am expecting you to fight against any proposals to cut, privatize, or limit America’s most essential social programs – Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. These programs must be protected, improved and expanded – not cut. I depend on these programs, I earned them, and I could not live without them – just as millions of other Californians do. I am counting on you to represent my interests and those of my friends, family and colleagues in your district. I am watching you and how you vote on these critical programs. Thank you.
Then, call U.S. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris with the same message at THIS NUMBER 866-220-0044 (different from above).
