Petition: Support Medicare today!

The National Memo
Dear Fellow Progressive,

When middle class seniors in Ohio go to their doctor to have their blood pressure checked, are rushed to the hospital for a life-saving procedure, or go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, they turn to Medicare to make it affordable.

More than 1.9 million Ohioans benefit from Medicare. They've earned those benefits through years of hard work.

Protecting Medicare is a middle class priority -- which means it's one of my priorities, as well. And if you believe Medicare should be preserved for our seniors, not destroyed, click here and add your voice today.

Earlier this month, Mitt Romney chose his Republican running mate: Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.

Paul Ryan, if you're not familiar with him, is the man who wrote the disastrous Republican budget plan not long ago that sought to end Medicare as we know it today by turning it into a voucher program that would leave future seniors' health care up to the profit-focused private insurance companies.

Under the Ryan plan, Ohio seniors would have to pay thousands more toward their out-of-pocket costs every year. Prescription drug costs could skyrocket.

Medicare is a cornerstone of middle-class security in America. And by picking Rep. Ryan for the ticket, the Republican party has clearly marked ending Medicare as we know it as its priority.

Well it's not my priority. Help me send a clear message to the other side -- protecting Medicare is our priority. Click here to add your voice today.

Thank you, once again, for helping to firm up our support for Medicare.

In a perfect world, the focus of this campaign would be international and the degree to which creation of jobs in America is so closely interwoven with world affairs. If that were to be so, this election wouldn't even be close.
Leo W. Gerard: Romney, Ryan Don't Get the Average Joe
GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney foolishly revived the dust-up about his income tax secrecy last week. He claimed he paid at least 13 percent, an assertion easy enough for him to prove by releasing his tax documents. But he's refusing to do that.

These days, the business sections of newspapers read like rap sheets. Money laundering. Price fixing. Bid rigging. Securities fraud. Talking about the mob? No, unfortunately. Wall Street.

Yesterday's Facebook mystique has given way to a very public stock market debacle. Yet if the signals involved are well internalized by management and staff, Facebook could well avoid what could have been an even bigger reality shock down the road.
