Social Security, MedicCare and Medicaid are not the reason we have a deficit problem. The two Bush tax cuts, 2 unpaid wars, Medicare Part D and the Wall Street Meltdown comprise the vast majority of our deficit problem. Cutting our social safety net to pay for republican budgetary, taxation and regulatory incompetence is unacceptable and inexcusable.

Ed Rendell joined the main group hell-bent on cutting Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security benefits while giving tax breaks to big corporations. It's called Fix The Debt and is funded by big corporations.Join thousands of others in fighting back. Sign the citizen statement:CITIZEN STATEMENT: Any deal that cuts Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits is unacceptable. I will work to hold accountable Democratic politicians who side with the millionaires and corporate interests that are working to enrich themselves and cut these benefits.Click the link below.
