Teamsters take action: Call Capitol Hill today

CLEVELAND, December 5 — Today, members of the BLET and other Teamsters are making their voices heard as we fight back against those who continue to wage a War on Workers on Capitol Hill. Following the November elections, Congress is back in Washington for a lame-duck session and will consider proposals to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Retired members or those with elderly parents know how important these social programs are to the American society. Please call your Representatives in Congress at (888) 979-9806 today and tell them to make no cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and end tax breaks for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans.

It is time that politicians who talk about “shared sacrifice” ensure that the middle class and working families are not deprived of the benefits they have already paid for during their working lives, while the wealthy and corporations are let off the hook.

Call (888) 979-9806 today and demand your Representative make no cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and end tax breaks for the wealthiest 2 percent.
