We are living in unprecedented and scary times. The country is coming close to defaulting on its financial obligations yet many members of Congress refuse to raise revenues to reduce the deficit as part of a debt deal and to rule out cutting Social Security benefits.
Why? In order to protect huge tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires and for companies making record profits, many of which are shipping American jobs overseas.
To stop this madness we are asking you TODAY to call and email your U.S. Representative and Senator Warner to stop Social Security cuts and a disastrous debt deal!
While the deficit talks have temporarily collapsed in Washington, they will be resurrected at any time and Senator Warner continues to play a huge role. In these extraordinary and desperate times there is the real possibility for a disastrous debt deal to be negotiated – one that puts Social Security on the chopping block and lets the wealthy and corporations off the hook from paying their fair share. We need you to help make sure that does not happen.
Let Senator Warner know:
- Social Security should not be cut to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and tax breaks for corporations.
- Social Security belongs to the people – not to politicians in Washington. We pay for Social Security. It does not cause the deficit.
- Social Security should not be raided and used as a piggybank to continue lower tax rates for the wealthy and tax breaks for corporations.
