Whereas: Social Security and Medicare represent a covenant between the government and its citizens;
Whereas: Social Security and Medicare belong to the people who have worked hard all their lives and contributed to the programs — not to the politicians in Washington who want to use them as a piggy bank;
Whereas: Social Security and Medicare are based on a promise that if you contribute then you earn the right to guaranteed benefits;
Whereas: America’s more than 40 million seniors have paid (and over 160 million workers are currently paying) their hard-earned money into Social Security and Medicare; and
Whereas: One of my top priorities as a citizen and voter is the protection of Social Security and Medicare for current and future retirees.
Therefore, Be It Resolved I urge you to work closely with the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare to protect the benefits we have worked for, paid for and earned. Among your top priorities as my elected representatives should be to defeat privatization and other proposals that threaten my retirement and health security.
