Urge President Obama to Keep Medicare and Social Security Off Limits in Budget Talks with Republicans

Don’t Give In the Next Time the Radical Right Threatens Shutdown or Default


The deal struck to end the shutdown and forestall default includes a plan to negotiate over further budget cuts. Make no mistake, what the Republicans — and, sad to say, President Obama — are talking about is cutting Medicare and Social Security.

Make sure President Obama hears from you. Add your name to those urging the president to maintain the momentum we’ve just won by keeping Medicare and Social Security off limits in budget talks with Republicans.

PETITION TO PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA


You stood up to the regressive ideology and undemocratic grandstanding of Tea Party Republicans. But they will be back. We implore you: Never allow Medicare and Social Security to be put on the table in any negotiation with right-wing extremists.

Learn More about the distinction between these two components of Public Citizen.


Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation

Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
