RESPECTING OTHERS

NO CUTS TO MEDICARE, MEDICAID AND SOCIAL SECURITY

We all are aware that there is a push to slash Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. We need to make it clear that any attempt to privatize, cut, weaken or damage these earned benefits is completely unacceptable. But we must act now!

Please contact your members in Congress and voice a loud NO to anything resembling an attack on our earned benefits.

President Trump, in his 2016 campaign, pledged not to attack Medicare, Medicaid or our Social Security. We all know now that he has not kept this pledge. The ultimate goal is to end Medicare as we know it and replace it was a privatized program. They are also attacking programs such as SNAP, Meals on Wheels, and other programs that families rely on.

Please act now by contacting your elected officials in Washington. There is no time to waste.

Thanks for taking action.

 

NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH (NIH): FUND GUN VIOLENCE RESEARCH

Ninety-three people are killed on average by gun violence per day in the United States. This is a public health crisis. We MUST do so much better.

In 1996, the National Rifle Association (NRA) successfully pressured Congress to pass the Dickey Amendment, which banned federal funding for gun violence, first at the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) and then at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Since Sandy Hook, however, President Obama urged the NIH to begin to fund some gun violence research. Under President Trump, that funding ended.

NIH leaders need to know that people across the country are counting on them to stand up to the NRA and extreme Republicans and start funding gun violence research again. Please tell the NIH to do this!

Here is the information to contact the NIH:
