Budget Showdown: Working People Are Calling Congress Today

Visit for all the information you need on the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress. 

No more tax breaks for the wealthiest 2%. No benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. These are the two messages members of Congress are hearing today as seniors and working people of all ages are calling their representatives in Washington, D.C., about the upcoming budget showdown. 

AFSCME, the National Education Association (NEA), the Alliance for Retired Americans and others are calling on our representatives to protect these vital family protection lifelines and ask the wealthy to pay their fair share. 

Across America, 62% of voters want the rich to pay higher tax rates and 73% want to protect Social Security and Medicare benefits from cuts. 

Call your representative at 1-888-659-9401.
