Medicare slashed by $105 billion over the next 10 years - that's what will happen if the current version of the White House's 2007 budget is passed.

Tell the Congress to protect seniors from these harmful Medicare cuts at http://go.care2.com/e/Jd6/jw/pAxd

The Bush Administration has proposed cuts that will slash spending for hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and ambulance services - services that Seniors need to live long and healthy lives. The proposed budget also calls for increasing Medicare premiums for certain beneficiaries. Unfortunately for seniors, while the proposed budget slashes Medicare funding it protects rich special interests, leaving intact the $10 billion Medicare slush fund for HMOs.

Additionally, while planning cuts in Medicare the White House snuck $700 billion for privatization of Social Security in his budget. This is the same privatization plan Congress dumped the last time it was presented, in part because of our letters of outrage.

We must once again stop this reckless agenda the White House is putting forward, and must tell Congress to put our seniors ahead of big industry donors. Sign the petition and tell Congress to Protect our Seniors from Billions In Harmful Medicare Cuts!

Thank you for making a difference with Care2!
