Tell President Obama and Congress: Hold the Line Against Social Security Benefit Cuts
Republicans once again are demanding benefit cuts to pay for tax cuts for the rich, and threatening to harm the economy unless they get their way.
House Speaker John Boehner’s recent “Plan B” proposal would extend tax cuts on income between $250,000 and $1 million a year—which would benefit millionaires as well. In fact, about half of the Boehner tax cut would go to millionaires.
At the same time, Republicans are demanding to cut Social Security Cost-of-Living Adjustments through the so-called “Chained CPI.”
Tell your legislators and President Obama to reject House Speaker Boehner’s proposal to extend tax cuts for the richest Americans and that they oppose any cuts to Social Security, Medicaid or Medicare benefits, regardless of who proposes them.
