Demand That Paul Ryan Leave Medicare Alone

Sign the Petition Opposing Paul Ryan and the Congressional Republicans’ Plan to End Medicare as We Know It

Paul Ryan and too many other members of Congress pretend that Medicare cuts are necessitated by a concern that the program could bankrupt our country.

But the reality is that corporate stooges and anti-progressives in Congress have always wanted to dismantle Medicare, despite — or maybe because of? — its unassailable success.

So now they’re exploiting our nation’s economic anxieties to manufacture a false crisis that gives them cover to go after Medicare.

We have a very simple response: Leave Medicare alone.

Add Your Name to the Petition to Tell Paul Ryan: Leave Medicare Alone!
