After watching today's fiscal commission meeting it appears, as expected, it's unlikely there will be 14 members in support of the Fiscal Commission's report.  That vote will come on Friday and there are several key Democratic members who NEED to hear from seniors today.   Based on their comments today, it appears some these folks will ultimately vote against this report; however, they are not all expressing the clear reservations we would expect to hear from members who support Social Security and Medicare.  We urge you to offer these members a respectful, yet clear reminder of why deep cuts in benefits, raising the retirement age, cost sharing in Medicare, and countless other provisions don't represent  the "shared sacrifice" promised by this commission. Tell them cutting Social Security benefits to avoid paying back the billions you’ve contributed for a working lifetime to the Trust Fund is NOT the “shared sacrifice” Washington promised.  Middle class Americans can not continue to foot the bill for Washington’s fiscal failures. They should Vote NO on a fiscal commission report that uses Social Security as Washington’s piggy bank! Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) 202-224-2152 Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) 202-224-2651 Rep.
