S. 2708, the Choose Medicare Act, would (as its title suggests) let good Americans to buy into Medicare via the Affordable Care Act exchanges, which would make Medicare, essentially, a public option for folks under 65. Medicare works astoundingly well for a health insurance program that only includes people who are very likely to get sick; how much better would it work if younger, healthier people also bought in? The Choose Medicare Act would also let employers choose Medicare for their employees, which a lot of them will do, if they're actually sincere about cutting costs. And the Choose Medicare Act would (finally!) let Medicare negotiate drug pricing, which would certainly do a lot more to keep drug prices down than the corporate welfare handouts of the recent tax "reform" law. So CREDO helps you tell your Congressfolk to expand access to good health care for Americans by supporting the Choose Medicare Act.
Meanwhile, both Sum of Us and Public Citizen help you tell automobile manufacturing corporation Ford Motors to stop trying to gut the fuel efficiency standards set by the Obama Administration. Yes, despite their kind words about the standards in 2012, and despite their little PR campaigns in which they say they deplore climate change, they're trying to gut those fuel standards now that a Republican occupies the Oval Office, even though these standards actually save money for regular folks like you and I and save in long-term health care costs for regular folks like you and I. Sadly, corporate executives are not regular folks like you and I, and they "suffer" from being made to make their cars get more miles to the gallon by making less money. This, even though their choice in life is either to be rich or to be rich! Our choice in life, of course, is more stark: we'll either be free or we won't. Strike a blow for freedom by telling Ford to stop running us down.
Finally, Republicans have tried to privatize Social Security, and failed; they've tried to cut Social Security benefits, and failed; they've even tried to cut Social Security customer service funding, and failed. And they failed at each of these because we've stood in their way. But I guess they've got to get a win somewhere, so they're planning to let Social Security field office leases lapse without renewing them. You know, the way corporations like to let people leave without replacing them? Trouble with that, of course, is that people still need Social Security offices to serve their needs, and people who need Social Security offices did work for it and pay for it all their lives, did they not? Social Security Works helps you tell our government to stop closing Social Security offices that help good Americans enjoy the dignified retirement they deserve.
