Dear Mr. President….

Dear Mr. President,

Stop calling the Social Security and Medicare benefits THAT I EARNED OVER A LIFE-TIME OF WORK “entitlements.” That is NOT a Democratic term. These are benefits that my fellow workers and I earned.

*NO to raising the Medicare age to 67. I was forced by ill-health to retire at 61 and take lesser benefits. Lots of folks have to retire early because they cannot keep up the hours and schedules demanded by our corporate overlords.

*NO to any changes in Social Security benefits or Medicare or Medicaid.

*Go back to the Reagan-era tax codes—i.e. 70% taxes on the wealthy.

*Keep reminding people that George Bush raised the debt limit seven times.

Stand up for your party and for the people who elected you. Push back hard against Republican ideas.
