Do not to give in to a “grand bargain” that will jeopardize vital social programs.
As Congress gears up for a major showdown over the “fiscal cliff” and federal spending, I call on you to help work towards a balanced solution to our nation's fiscal challenges that includes:
- drawing a clear line in the sand against harmful cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid;
- ending the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2% once and for all;
- closing tax loopholes for corporations; and
- making deeper cuts in military spending.
The American people can not afford to accept another bad deal that further burdens the most vulnerable populations while continuing to cater to the ultra-rich and greedy corporations. I call on you to reject any deal that extends the Bush tax cuts for the rich or make cuts to vital programs.
