Don't Let Washington Cut Medicare Benefits!

Right now, some politicians in Washington are trying to cram changes to Medicare benefits into a last-minute budget deal before the end of the year. This change would raise the Medicare eligibility age to 67, shifting thousands of dollars in costs to seniors and making Medicare premiums more expensive.

Washington should be having an open discussion about how to strengthen Medicare, not cutting the benefits millions rely on as part of a short-sighted budget deal.

Tell Congress and President Obama: Don't raise the Medicare eligibility age as part of a last-minute budget deal!
