Let's Fight to Protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security! #default

SindeyDemby.jpg.jpgLast month I joined hundreds of labor activists and union members from across the country in Washington, D.C. to urge our elected members of Congress to create jobs, and not cut funding to vital services like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security in the ongoing budget deal negotiations.

I went to our nation's capital because I hoped that I could make a difference. People in my community of Wilmington, Delaware always tell me that the "squeaking wheel gets the oil." When you don't say anything, they think you're going along with the program. Our leaders need to honor why we put them there. It shouldn't just stop after we've elected them.

Will you help me let Congress know what's at stake for America's hardworking middle class families? Click here to write a letter to your U.S. Representative.

I want vital services like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security to be there when we need them. Working people deserve it. After you've worked for half of your life, you should have the benefits that you've worked hard for. If Republicans in Congress have their way and continue to give tax breaks to the wealthy, working middle class people like me, who will do whatever it takes to support their families, will suffer.

It's time for the 1% to pay their fair share. Most of them got where they are on our backs. It was through our hard work and sweat that they got where they are.

I went to Washington, D.C. to speak for the people from my community who couldn't be there with me. But I know this fight is bigger than that. That's why I am continuing to fight not just for the people of Delaware, but also for middle class families everywhere.

Join me in the fight to protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security and send a letter to your representative, now!
