If you have "no place to go," come here!

Today, Nov 30, is National Call-In Day, Call 866-220-0044 and tell them: Keep Your Hands OFF Our Medicare and Social Security!

From Healthcare-NOW! --

Tell Congress: Don’t Cut Our Social Security and Medicare programs. CALL TODAY.

Join today’s National Call Congress Day and tell your Representative and Senators to SAY NO to cutting our Social Security and Medicare.

Call 866-220-0044 for the capitol switchboard and ask to be connected. Don’t know your Representative or Senators? Go here.

The Co-Chairs of the National Fiscal Commission have proposed deep cuts to Social Security and Medicare – increasing the retirement age to 69, making Medicare recipients pay more out-of-pocket for healthcare, cutting benefits for middle-class workers and reducing annual Cost of Living Adjustments.

We need your help to stop them!

Social Security and Medicare are promises that must not be broken–we’ve worked hard and paid for them in taxes. Social Security and Medicare belong to our children, our parents, our neighbors and ourselves.

ACT NOW! Your voice needs to be heard.

Call your Congress people RIGHT NOW at 866-220-0044 or go here if you don’t know who they are.

Tell the person who answers the phone:

“I am a voter/constituent living in [your state]. I am calling to tell the [Rep. or Senator] – NO CUTS TO, PRIVATIZATION OF, OR RAISING THE ELIGIBILITY AGE FOR SOCIAL SECURITY OR MEDICARE! HANDS OFF SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE.”

Please take the time for this very important effort today. An improved Medicare for All system will control health costs and make Medicare sustainable for future generations. We still need improved Medicare for All.

They are my Senators - and Giffords (my Representative) is as bad as the other two! She supported Obama after she got his PAC money and after Arizona Dems "elected" Hillary in our primary.

She is no Democrat IMHO.

Arizona is screwed!

After listening forever to Chuck Schumer's voice loop around and resonantly tell me a few times just how important my opinion was to him, I got a busy signal. After three calls I gave up. I think he is one of the few senators who don't have after hours voice mail, though that may be changing and worsening.

The operator told me that Gillibrand's lines were all tied up and didn't even try to send me there.

I got through to Carolyn Maloney's office and was really angry at that point and told them I was so disgusted with the Dems in this country, and this cat food commission was just one more fresh hell, that I had joined the Green Party. The guy on the phone asked me to explain what it was I was upset about again after I had mentioned social security cuts, medicare cuts and raising retirement age, like it was a rare thing to hear about this or maybe he just didn't know. Not a good sign. But I am glad I called. Thank you.

Since there is a three hour time difference from east to west, and I could not get an answer in DC, I called their Portland offices this afternoon.

Sen. Jeff Merkley's office sent me to voicemail, presumably because of the volume of calls. I left him a message with the particulars. I spoke to a live person at Congressman Earl Blumenauer's office. Got bounced from the phone at Sen. Ron Wyden's office. I'll try Wyden again in a bit.

The person at Blumenauer's office said they are getting alot of calls, she didn't say about what, but she did say that people are very upset about talk of cutting SS in any way.

i'm glad to hear they are getting an earful. thanks for reporting that. i figured the busy signals, filled inboxes, etc, meant that people were calling in large numbers, but it's nice to get some confirmation.
