Our Backs Are to the Wall
The Senate vote on tax giveaways and budget cuts is expected on Thursday, November 30. It already passed the House, so the two bills could be reconciled very soon.
Fight is On!
We fight better when our backs are to the wall. We are calling Congress with the free Alliance for Retired Americans hotline:
Thanks to our Austin Chapter, we have also found a way to influence non-Texans by participating in a virtual phone bank. Click this link for instructions: Stop the Tax Scam Virtual Phone Bank.
Our seven chapters across Texas are working on press conferences and other public events.
Our national organization says that the Tax Bill will trigger drastic cuts in Medicare and Medicaid. It is nothing but a gigantic handout to the rich at our expense!
We Aren’t the Only Ones With Backs to the Wall!
Big corporations and their political stooges know that they have to move fast. They don’t want the American people to realize the full extent of their robbery. If they can’t carry the heist out before Christmas, they are less likely to try it in an election year.
Congress is also facing a December 8th deadline on their debt ceiling. Americans are demanding that they fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and that they do something positive about immigration.
Keep up the fight!
