TELL DEMOCRATS TO STAND UPFOR PROGRESSIVE PRINCIPLES

DEAR FELLOW DEMOCRATS:

Democrats get six seats on the committee charged with cutting our deficit. And those Democrats should speak with one voice when it comes to these three progressive principles.

1. MEDICARE
We believe that any solution that ends Medicare as we know it–by slashing benefits or turning it into a voucher program–is no solution at all, and we will oppose it.

2. SOCIAL SECURITY
We believe that Social Security is a promise that must be kept. It provides economic security to millions of vulnerable Americans, did not cause the budget problem, and should not be cut as part of the solution.

3. SHARED SACRIFICE
We believe that we all must share the sacrifice–and that includes big corporations and the wealthy.

Democrats believe in fiscal responsibility. But with Republicans attempting to ram their extreme agenda through by force, I urge you to stand firm in support of these uniting principles.

Signed,
YOUR NAME

When it comes to the “super committee,” every Democrat should unite around three principles:

1. Oppose any plan that ends Medicare as we know it.
2. Protect Social Security–a program that isn’t responsible for the deficit.
3. Demand that big corporations and the wealthy share in the sacrifice.

Add your name to our letter today and tell Democrats to stand up for these progressive principles!
