Call Senator Durbin Today!

Call Senator Durbin Today!

By all accounts, Republicans and Democrats alike are pushing federal budget plans that will make deadly cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other vital safety net programs instead of raising substantial revenue from the wealthy and big corporations. This will literally result in sickness, misery and death for millions, so that we can continue as a nation to simply let the rich get richer at our expense. The answer is not deep cuts and “some”revenue”, the answer is a lot more revenue from those who can afford to pay and have not been doing their fair share. Senator Dick Durbin is a key decision maker who is advancing this unacceptable and morally reprehensible approach.
Please call Senator Durbin’s office and deliver this message:
tell them you name, city of residence, (and organizational affiliation is applicable)
I demand the Senator Durbin commit to stopping any cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and that instead of cuts to vital programs he support ending the Bush tax cuts for the top 2%, impose a tax on Wall Street speculation and pursue other progressive revenue solutions.
