UJP: Stand Firm, Senator Kerry!


Dear friend,

Three years after the onset of the Great Recession, Washington is focused on
cutting deficits instead of on creating jobs.  Senator John Kerry is one of 12
members of a Super Committee charged with cutting $1.5 trillion from the
deficit.   Will he stand firm?


Join UJP's 25% Campaign, Massachusetts Peace Action, and Progressive Democrats
of America at a Brown Bag Lunch Vigil at Sen. Kerry’s office this Wednesday
noon [1]!  We'll say: Create jobs; no cuts in Social Security, Medicare,
Medicaid, or services; ask the affluent to pay their fair share of taxes; stop
the wars  in Iraq and Afghanistan and reduce Pentagon spending significantly!


Senator Kerry says [2] that cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are
inevitable.  But that is not true: ending the wars and a 25% cut to the
military would alone save far more than $1.5 trillion.


Call your Member of Congress!  The Massachusetts House delegation's meeting
with Sen. Kerry about the Super Committee will take place this Wednesday. If you
didn't call or email your Member of Congress last week, please do it now at
(202) 224-3121. Or send your Representative an email using our online form [3].
Ask him or her to tell Sen. Kerry: stand firm against cuts in Social Security,
Medicare and Medicaid and insist on real solutions instead.


Together, we can remind Sen. Kerry to stand with the people of Massachusetts,
not with the billionaires and the military-industrial complex!
