Rally to Tell Ron Wyden:
Don’t Privatize Medicare!
Wednesday, March 14, 2012
SE Corner of Holladay Park
NE 13th and NE Hollday
Senator Ron Wyden has gone too far.
In attempting to be “bipartisan,” he has volunteered to put Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security on the chopping block, with no regard for how it will affect our senior citizens. The plan he has produced with Senator Paul Ryan would shift health care costs to seniors, increase insurance industry control over people’s lives, and give a boost to Rep. Ryan’s not-so-secret plan to ruin Medicare.
Senator Wyden’s special interests are no doubt influencing his decision to slash our essential retirement security programs. With big-money funders like BlueCross/BlueShield and Medco, Wyden’s backers have a dog in the fight against Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
Join us on Wednesday as we rally at the park, then march to Senator Wyden's office.
Thanks, and see you next week!
