Are you going to be a idle witness to the death of these programs that have helped so many, maybe even you? It’s time to take back this country from those who falsely claim they represent the people, when, in fact, they are the paid representatives of Corporate America. Privatization is a false god, it is evil, and it is trying to steal the country right out from under you.

 

Tuesday, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (WI-01) announced the Republican’s budget proposal.  It is unbelievably bad – literally.  The GOP budget not only repeals the new health care law it eliminates Medicare and Medicaid as we know it.1
Fight for these life saving programs today.  Call you Member of Congress and tell them to vote NO on the Republican’s extremist budget.

The Republican’s proposal gives millionaires huge tax breaks while seniors and hard-working families pay more for health care and get less coverage.  Ryan’s plan would radically undermine the economic security of America’s middle class.  It helps Wall Street-run health insurance companies make record-breaking profits and pay their CEOs outrageous sums to deny people the care they paid for and need.2
Nowhere in the Republican plan is there any shared sacrifice. There’s no fairness.

 

The big corporations and super-rich aren’t asked to pitch in. Instead they get even richer. This budget changes the rules and reshapes this country in a breathtakingly dangerous way.

This budget would eviscerated programs that everyone in this country depend on.  Republicans are attacking every single one of us.3
The GOP’s budget breaks America’s most basic promise: That if you work hard and play by the rules, you can take care of your family and retire with peace of mind.4 Call Congress today.
