Watch our video, then tell President Obama—Hands off Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid !

Dear Underdog Readers ,

Since the creation of the powerful Super Committee in Congress, we’ve heard an outpouring from people around the country who are worried that it will target Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid for cuts to reach its goal of $1.5 TRILLION in deficit reduction. In early September, President Obama will give a speech laying out his agenda to create jobs. He is also expected to ask the Super Committee to consider his plan for reducing the deficit by $4 TRILLION. The President was negotiating that plan with House Speaker Boehner in July.
We need to draw a line in the sand now before President Obama makes his speech and tell the White House no cuts to Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.
In July the President proposed $650 billion in cuts to these crucial programs. These cuts included reducing the Social Security cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), which would affect seniors immediately, raising the Medicare eligibility age to 67, and deeply cutting Medicaid.
We can’t let these cuts happen. Social Security does not even contribute a penny to the federal deficit!

President Obama knows that is not the America we want.
Now it’s up to us to remind himno cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

We can stop this from happening – if we work together. Sign the Petition
