Tell Rep. Meeks: Sign the Grayson-Takano letter

Reps. Alan Grayson, Mark Takano, and other members of Congress have promised to vote against any cuts to Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid benefits. Can you ask Rep. Meeks to become a co-signer on the Grayson-Takano letter today?

Dear MoveOn member,

President Obama's State of the Union address last night made many of us proud. He talked about climate change and new jobs programs, and he issued a stern call for a vote on laws to curb gun violence.

But the president left the door dangerously open for cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits, claiming they are justified by the need to address the deficit.

MoveOn members have consistently made it clear that we don't agree. And as of this morning, neither do the bold members of Congress who have signed Representatives Alan Grayson and Mark Takano's letter promising to "vote against any and every cut to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits."

Can you call Representative Gregory Meeks today and ask him to cosign the Grayson-Takano letter promising to vote against any and every cut to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits?

Republicans have been using every excuse in the book to try to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and the current debate is just the latest false cover. But they can't cut these critical, popular programs that millions of Americans depend on without Democratic support. That's why getting Democrats like Rep. Meeks signed on to the Grayson-Takano letter is so important.

If enough of us get our members of Congress to sign, we can take Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefit cuts off the table for good and turn the focus to where it belongs: jobs, immigration, climate change, and so much more.

Will you make a call right now to whip up support for Reps. Grayson and Takano's letter?
