Go Alan Grayson!
The GOP lives for austerity and strives for cuts to and the eventual elimination of successful programs that so many Americans depend on. Their watchword: Privatize. Their goal: Union busting (Read: Ending Democratic fundraising) and destroying their own government. Their prize: Money and power. They salivate over the prospect of profiting off of the misfortune of others, the needs of their fellow citizens, the public programs that have worked better than their for-profit corporate schemes.
Austerity hasn't worked overseas, it hasn't worked here.
"...End the sequester."
"Washington does not normally see 300,000 people speak as one. I am your legs today, and to some extent I'm your voice, but I'm not the one who matters. What matters is that we work together... In numbers there is strength."
"...They're gonna have to listen."
Now we have to make sure that everyone, including the White House, knows that the American people reject all benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid.
In an effort led by Alan Grayson, 31 members of Congress have pledged to vote against legislation that cuts Social Security, Medicaid or Medicare benefits.
Let's make sure the White House knows we reject all benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid.
If 100,000 of us sign this petition, Alan Grayson will deliver it to the White House.
