Representative Petri, protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid!
These days, I’m retired and counting on the Social Security and Medicare I've paid into my entire working life - since I started working at the age of 16.
We need to make sure these programs are around for the folks who are working and contributing now-but some politicians in Congress want to cut taxes for the richest 2% of Americans and pay for it by cutting benefits from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, and other programs that support working families.
Politicians are also talking about raising the retirement age, which would be terrible, especially those working in construction, manufacturing or the service industry—can you imagine working those jobs until you’re 70?
Will you sign this petition to urge Congressman Petri to do what’s right for Wisconsin’s working families?
