Please forward this to anyone who might be interested.

The Alliance for Retired Americans and the AFL-CIO are calling a national day of action against any cuts to Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.

Our most precious and popular social programs – Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are under attack – and not just by the far right. President Obama, along with Democratic leaders, are proposing huge changes – from the Chained CPI (which is a cut, changing the way the COLA is calculated), to increases in Medicare premiums, rate reductions for Medicare and Medicaid providers, and even raising the beneficiary age for Medicare and Social Security. THESE CUTS MUST BE STOPPED. Actions across the country will involve making human chains to break the chained CPI and other cuts to our essential programs.

Many of you/your organizations have been involved in petition drives, phone- in days, legislative visits, media campaigns and more to have your voices heard against these cuts. But we need to do more. It is time to put our feet to the street.

Please come to the SF Bay Area planning meeting: Wed., May 29th, 10 AM.
