“Fiscal Cliff” Stiffs Seniors, Veterans, protects Pentagon and military corporations from needed, prudent cuts.
As Ronald Reagan once quipped, “There they go again.” Conservatives who have long dreamed of dismantling Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans benefits, our social safety net and domestic spending have concocted a phony “fiscal cliff” crisis to allow them to do just that, something they could never get away with otherwise. Their priorities, and a proposed “deal” in the works, are exactly what the voters rejected, soundly, just six weeks ago!
Don’t let them do it! No Deal that shreds social spending while keeping Pentagon spending massive!
Call the White House (202-456-1111), your Senators and Congressperson (use this toll-free number for the Capitol Switchboard: 866-426-2631) and tell them:
-Hands off Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid – No Cuts No Way No How!
-Cut Pentagon bloat! The proposed $100 billion cut is far too small, Peace Action supports Barney Frank's proposed 25% reduction in military spending.
-Tax the top 2% and the corporations – make them pay their fair share!
Let’s raise our voices and demand peace and economic justice! Let’s make this an unhappy holiday for those who want to preserve the privileges of the 1% and the war machine.
Thanks for all you do,
