Support Grayson-Takano to protect SS, Medicare and Medicaid!

DuPage County... just wanted to make sure you saw yesterday's email. Can you join over 130,000 others and become a citizen supporter to the Grayson-Takano letter against benefit cuts?
Thanks! -- Amanda Johnson

From Yesterday's Email:
DuPage County,
Great news! Alan Grayson (D-FL) and Mark Takano (D-CA) have been joined by a dozen of their House colleagues on a bold letter vowing to vote against any deal that cuts Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid benefits!
Working with allies, we achieved this momentum in just 24 hours -- along with over 4,000 calls to Congress and over 130,000 of us becoming citizen signers of the Grayson-Takano letter.
We are proud to work with a coalition of 10 progressive and labor groups to mobilize support for this letter -- which many Democratic members of Congress are just hearing about thanks to more and more grassroots activism.
Democratic votes will be needed to pass any deal. That means the more House Democrats sign this letter, the more leverage Democratic leaders will have as they negotiate with Republicans who are hell-bent on cutting benefits and hurting people.
