Oppose Medicare cut
The proposed Republican budget contains a proposal to raise Medicare eligibility to age 67. This is a huge benefit cut and will do great harm to our middle and working class people.
It is difficult for a lot of people, especially those who have done manual labor, to work to age 67. For others who want to start their own business Medicare gives them security about health care and allows them to retire form their jobs. This increased overall economic activity. I know that I personally would have a hard time working until I’m 67.
I think this is really a slap in the face to middle and working class Americans, especially when Trump’s proposed tax reform will primarily benefit millionaires and billionaires. Republicans are once again taking from the middle class to give to the wealthy, who already control a disproportionate share of our national wealth.
Please contact all of those in Congress to oppose this massive cut.
