Tell Your Representatives:
Cut Benefits and I Won't Support You

President Obama has officially endorsed cuts to Social Security benefits in his most recent budget proposal. This cruel and senseless recommendation should not even be considered by congress.

This is a good time to call your representatives and remind them that you will not support anyone who votes to cut Social Security benefits.

Call your senators and member of congress to oppose any plan that cuts Social Security benefits:

Sample script:

Hello, my name is ____{name}____ and I'm calling today to let ____{Offical's name}____ know that I will not support him/her if she facilitates any budget that includes cuts to Social Security benefits.

In his budget proposal, the president has officially signaled his support for using Chained CPI to calculate cost of living adjustments. This is an accounting gimmick that slashes benefits at a time when these programs are desperately needed. If ____{name}____ supports this budget, or any that facilitates cuts to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid he/she will forfeit my support.

Thank you for your time.
