Don't Throw Granny Off a Cliff!
This week marks the 47th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid. Every year these programs dramatically improve the lives of more than 100 million seniors and other Americans, and along with Social Security have provided a vital safety net to those in need and greatly expanded the middle class. Now Republicans like Pat McCrory, Robert Pittenger and Mitt Romney say they’re all behind the Ryan budget that would literally end Medicare as we have known it by turning it into a voucher program, and cut Medicaid in half. All while saying that they won’t put one more penny of taxes on the wealthy and corporations that aren’t paying their fair share.
It’s time we stand up to this extremist agenda before it’s too late, and also tell Pat McCrory and the legislature to quit playing politics and expand Medicaid so that 500,000 more North Carolinians can have quality, affordable health care.
If you think we need to keep moving forward rather than let these people take us backwards to the 1950s, come join us! We’ll sing, chant, eat some birthday cake, blow some noisemakers, and make sure the GOP knows we’re fighting back.
