Call the Super Committee to Oppose Safety Net Cuts!

The deadline is looming for the deficit reduction super committee.

Some of the proposals coming out of the committee have included $400 billion in cuts to Medicare, a permanent extension of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and "adjustments" to Social Security.

These proposals would do little to reduce the deficit and destroy the social safety net in the process. We cannot let this happen.

Call the Super Committee today to oppose social safety net cuts.

Script:

Hello, my name is ____{name}____ and I'm calling today to ask that (Senator or Congressman) ____{name}____ vote against any super committee proposal containing cuts to programs like Social Security or Medicare.

I understand that the committee has floated proposals containing deep cuts to these programs. This is unacceptable.

Any attempt to reduce the deficit should not be done on the backs of the most vulnerable Americans.

I hope (Senator or Congressman) ____{name}____ does the right thing and votes against any proposal containing cuts to social safety net programs.

Thank you for your time.
