The American people are angry. They are angry that they are being forced to live through the worst recession in our lifetimes — with sky-high unemployment, with millions of people losing their homes and their life savings.

It has trillions in spending cuts that will hurt poor and middle-class families and no taxes on the rich. It also lines up Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits for future cuts.

Nancy Pelosi said “none of us may be able to support it” — but many Democrats are making up their minds in the next few hours.

Your Representative, Mazie Hirono, signed a letter pledging not to vote for any deal that cuts Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Can you call her right now?

Tell Rep. Hirono to keep her promise and vote NO on this bad deal — click here for the number and a script. Here’s what folks are saying about this deal: Continue reading
