This coming Tuesday, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address, and in early March, he will unveil his budget for the coming year. Early reports suggest that the State of the Union will focus on rising income inequality—but last year, the President’s budget included the Chained CPI. If enacted, this would have resulted in direct cuts to Social Security benefits at a time when people are relying on them more than ever.

Over 115,000 people signed our petition last week calling on the President to reject cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits in his budget and State of the Union address. But we need to keep the pressure on—Can you help?

We have created this web ad, which we plan to run throughout Washington, DC. The ad calls on President Obama to fight income inequality by introducing NO CUTS to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid in his State of the Union address or federal budget.

Together we defeated last year’s efforts by Wall Street CEOs, Republicans and some Democrats to cut our earned benefits. But they haven’t gone away!
We have a little more than a month to ensure that the President learned his lesson last year. Can you chip in whatever you can to help us get this ad up?

Please donate today to run this ad throughout our nation’s capitol and to tell the President where we stand. No cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid!

We must remind the President that Social Security is the most successful anti-inequality program in our country’s history and has never contributed a single penny to the deficit.
Help Social Security Works run this important ad by donating as generously as possible today!

Together, we are changing the conversation in Washington and strengthening the future of Social Security. Thank you for your continued support.
