Hey, Congress-critters, I’ve Got Your Grand Bargain Right Here !!!

OPEN LETTER to CONGRESS

We support increasing Social Security benefits. Therefore, in upcoming budget negotiations, a Grand Bargain that cuts Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid benefits must be off the table.

Recent polls show that expanding Social Security benefits is overwhelmingly popular in states as diverse as Texas, Kentucky, Colorado, Iowa, and Hawaii. In the future, separate from budget discussions, Congress should debate expanding Social Security.

Signed,

Adam Green and Stephanie Taylor, Progressive Change Campaign Committee

This letter was also signed by representatives of the AFL-CIO, NOW, Latinos for a Secure Retirement, MovingOn.org, Democracy for America, Social Security Works, Alliance of Retired Americans, Progressives United, Campaign for America’s Future, USAction, Working Families, National Association of Social Workers, Americans for Democratic Action, Gray Panthers . . . . .
