Take action at a Progressive Democrats of America Brown Bag Lunch Vigil.
In a press conference about the proposed cuts to entitlements held yesterday morning, President Obama said, “The American people want to see something done.” Yes, we do.
60% of Americans want to keep Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are.
61% think people on Medicare pay enough of their healthcare costs.
58% say low-income people should keep their Medicaid benefits.
We want something done that doesn’t destroy our social insurance programs or throw our most vulnerable populations under the bus. We know Medicare is the solution to our health and fiscal crisis, and not the problem. We want improved and expanded Medicare-for-all.
Hold a Brown Bag Lunch Vigil at your Congressmembers’ offices on July 20 so they hear our message loud and clear:
Hands off Medicare!
Hands off Medicaid!
Hands off Social Security!
END CORPORATE WELFARE!
Started over a year ago by our friends at Progressive Democrats of America (PDA), Brown Bag Lunch Vigils’ original aim was to get out a simple message: “Healthcare NOT Warfare.” As the attacks on progressive values and the principles of democracy, equality and fairness have escalated over the last year, the focus and action have broadened.
