Hi,

when you have a minute, please consider signing this petition and tell Congress to Protect our Seniors from Billions In Harmful Medicare Cuts:
 


http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/383717952


The Bush Administration released its fiscal year 2007 budget which slashed Medicare by $36 billion over the next five years and $105 billion over the next ten years.  
These are cuts to hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, ambulance services, and other providers and increases in Medicare premiums for certain beneficiaries. At the same time that the budget slashes Medicare funding, it protects the special interests, leaving intact the $10 billion Medicare slush fund for HMOs. We can't let our parents and grandparents pay the price for Republican corruption.

Thank You.

~Virva~
