National Seniors Group Mobilizes Members & Supporters for December 5th Congressional Call-in Day

The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare is joining advocates across the nation in a Congressional Call-In day on Wednesday, December 5th.  Our goal is to flood Members of Congress with calls reminding them that Americans of all ages and political parties oppose cutting middle-class benefits to pay for deficit reduction. Our message to Congress is simple:

NO CUTS to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.  They should not be a part of this deficit debate.”

The threat to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid during this Lame Duck Congress is as serious as any time in these programs’ long and successful histories.  Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid do not belong in this deficit debate and Americans throughout the nation are urging Congress to take these programs off the table.   

NCPSSM’s Legislative Hotline will connect callers directly to their Congressional leaders from one toll-free number:


(800) 998-0180

This national call-in day is just one of many deficit debate mobilizations being led by the National Committee.  More than 100,000 letters urging no cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid have been delivered to the House with 65,000 petitions scheduled to be delivered to the Senate at a Capitol Hill event next week. National Committee grassroots volunteers are visiting Congressional district offices in targeted states.  In Washington, the National Committee continues to meet with key leaders in the deficit debate urging no cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.


The National Committee, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization acts in the interests of its membership through advocacy, education, services, grassroots efforts and the leadership of the Board of Directors and professional staff. The work of the National Committee is directed toward developing better-informed citizens and voters.

Ryan's Revised Healthcare Bill Even Worse Than the Original

Let us not speak of pigs and lipstick, but simply say that the freshly tweaked GOP health care bill introduced last night still socks it to older Americans. In an attempt to throw bones to both moderate Republicans and Tea Partiers, Speaker Paul Ryan has come up with a revised bill that’s even worse than the original for seniors and “near seniors” (under 64 years of age).
