The Super Committee ~ Good or Bad ?

Strengthen Social Security ~ Don`t Weaken It !

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. Watch the video with the link below, then tell President Obama—Hands off Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid ! 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 this is not the America we want. Now it's up to us to remind him - no cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

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

"The past is the cause of the present and the present will be the cause of the future"!

Thanks for all you do!

We should protect the money that was taken from us for Social Security and Medicare. After all, it's our own money, and doesn't belong to the government. However, Medicaid is just another welfare program. Should the government take from your Medicare to pay for someone else's Medicaid? Tennessee has TennCare, which is the biggest driver of debt that the state has. It, like all the other 49 state's social medical plans, is a failure. Too many people have done whatever they needed to do to get added to Medicaid. There are way too many able-bodied people who collect welfare from those of us who have worked all our lives, done the right thing, and made ends meet for our families without demanding handouts. When will we hold others accountable for their own debts? How many Medicaid recipients do you want to personally sponsor?
