Don’t Strip Health and Retirement Benefits From Millions of Seniors During Pandemic

Target: Mitt Romney, junior United States Senator, Utah

Goal: Withdraw legislation that would gut Social Security and Medicare.

Health and retirement benefits relied upon by generations of Americans could soon be under threat by legislation introduced by Senator Mitt Romney in an effort to cut the national deficit by harming the most vulnerable citizens. The Time to Rescue United States Trusts (TRUST) Act was introduced by Romney in 2019 with a small group of bipartisan supporters. If passed into law, the act would allow Congress to appoint small committees behind closed doors with little oversight. These committees would then propose cuts to public trust funds like Social Security and Medicare in an effort to offset federal spending by robbing older Americans of the benefits they’ve earned after long years of work.

In recent discussions about how to recover from COVID-19, Romney’s heinous bill has resurfaced as a possible component in Congressional economic planning. At a time when tens of thousands of Americans are dying due to the pandemic without adequate access to medical care, it is a shocking decision to take away medicine from vulnerable older people. Sign the petition below to demand that Senator Romney withdraw this grotesque proposal and fight instead to protect the people he’s sworn to serve.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Romney,

Even as more than 100,000 people have died from coronavirus in the United States, you have pushed a bill which would give lawmakers unprecedented power to destroy Medicare and Social Security just as our senior citizens need it most. This attack on the rights and benefits of millions of people is an insulting threat to countless families.

I demand you withdraw this bill and act with decency and morals to protect hardworking older Americans.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is Romney’s way of terminating the old people to make room for new liberal voters.
