Resource: Defending Medicare is intended as the hub for a Campaign to Preserve and Protect Medicare. In an action similar to his designation of six conservative senators to craft a health care bill, President Obama has created a Deficit Commission to decide how to reduce the Federal deficit that is packed with conservatives: not surprisingly, the commission has put Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security on the chopping block, while ignoring the elephant in the room, military spending. On the site, you can email or call your congressmembers and tell them not to cut social programs. There is also a breakdown of Deficit Commission members and their support for cutting and/or privatizing Social Security and Medicare.
