Social Security Call Congress Day
A bipartisan group of senators continues to threaten needless Social Security cuts. But we can stop them.
Today, we need you to call your Senators and demand that they vote for the Sanders-Reid Social Security Protection Amendment.
Call your senators at 1-866-251-4044 today! Tell them to support the Sanders-Reid Social Security Protection Amendment.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senator Bernie Sanders are taking the lead to protect Social Security from drastic cuts.
Their amendment simply says: “Social Security benefits for current and future beneficiaries should not be cut and Social Security should not be privatized as part of any legislation to reduce the Federal deficit.”
You can help pass this amendment by picking up the phone RIGHT NOW!
Call your senators at 1-866-251-4044 and tell the person who answers the phone:
- I am a voter/constituent living in [your state].
- I am calling to ask the senator to oppose all cuts to Social Security
- Vote “Yes” on the Sanders-Reid Social Security Protection Amendment.
- Thank you.
The Strengthen Social Security coalition – made up of over 270 national and state organizations, including the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is leading today’s Social Security Call Congress Day.
Please take the time today to call 1-866-251-4044 in support of this critical effort and protect Social Security for everyone. This is for you, your children and your grandchildren. Nearly all Americans will depend on Social Security at some point in their lives, and LGBT people have less income in retirement and have to rely on Social Security more than straight people. The Task Force has been the leader in the LGBT movement for more than 10 years in our efforts to protect Social Security from threats of privatization.
Thank you for calling to strengthen Social Security.
