Today is national call-in day to oppose the creation of a proposed fast-track deficit reduction commission that will target cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and other federal programs needed to ensure economic security for elders and their families. The Senate votes on the fast-track commission tomorrow.
Here's what you can do to voice your opposition:
1. Watch the "Social Security Matters" video created by our friends at the Older Women's League.
2. Call 1-800-998-0180 and tell your Senator to vote NO to the undemocratic commission.
3. Sign the petition, sponsored by the Campaign for America's Future and Frances Perkin Center, opposing the commission.
