Add your name: Stop Paul Ryan from destroying Medicare!

Friend, right now, Republicans in Washington are preparing to destroy Medicare by handing it over to the greedy insurance industry in return for campaign donations and lobbyist cash. Medicare is a fundamental tool of economic security ― a guarantee that seniors will not be denied health care because they can’t afford it. Paul Ryan and his fellow Republicans want to end that guarantee.

Demand that Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell live up to President-Elect Donald Trump's campaign promise to not touch Medicare and Social Security. We must save Medicare from Speaker of the House Paul Ryan before he guts our earned benefits in the opening months of the new Congress. 

The American people are united. Medicare is overwhelmingly popular across the political spectrum, and we won’t stand for attempts to destroy it. Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, President-elect Donald Trump pledged to not touch Medicare and Social Security.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may use a parliamentary procedure called reconciliation to bring Speaker Ryan’s plan to destroy Medicare to a vote ― and it could happen as soon as this January. Reconciliation would allow this devastating bill to pass by a simple majority, without the opportunity for a filibuster. But the American people will not take this lying down.

Tell the Republicans that we are here to save Medicare from their plans to destroy it. 

Thank you,
