Click here ; < will add your name to this petition to Rep. Fincher:

"As a constituent, I am appalled that you voted for Rep. Paul Ryan's(R) irresponsible and extreme budget plan to end Medicare as we know it."

Rep. Paul Ryan's 2012 budget proposal was one of the most brutal attacks on the social safety net in decades.
And your member of Congress, Stephen Fincher, joined in by voting for it.

Paul Krugman called Rep. Ryan's budget bill both "ludicrous" and "cruel." "Ludicrous" because the budget projections were pure fantasy, "cruel" because it proposed massive spending cuts for programs that mainly help children, the poor and the elderly, while slashing taxes for corporations and the ultra-rich.

One of the main programs targeted by the Ryan budget was Medicare, which under the proposal would be destroyed in all but name, and replaced by a voucher program for seniors who'd be dumped into the private insurance market. And if the vouchers didn't cover the cost of insurance, too bad.

But the Ryan proposal does nothing to actually control costs. All the Ryan plan does is shift the cost of health care onto the backs of seniors. And, in fact, by forcing seniors into the inefficient private insurance market, it would actually drive up the cost of providing health care to them. During the last week, a number of Republicans who voted for this plan have been confronted by their constituents for supporting an end to Medicare while refusing to raise taxes on the rich.

With both the 2012 budget and the debt ceiling fights looming, this type of pushback is really important. Rep. Fincher needs to hear that he crossed a line.
And Rep. Fincher needs to know that he will be held accountable by his constituents for supporting such extreme and irresponsible proposals.
