    With Senate votes happening in a matter of hours, there's no time to lose – we need to make sure our Senators know we're counting on them to stand strong against these harmful cuts. Will you take one simple step to make sure your impact is even bigger? It only takes a minute to spread the word on Facebook or Twitter – or just forward the email below!

    Thanks again for taking action. Together, we can make sure the voices of older Americans are loud and clear – and protect Social Security for today's seniors and future generations.

    Sincerely,
    Fred

    Hey–

    In a matter of hours, the Senate will begin voting on a budget plan that could include cuts to our Social Security benefits!

    President Obama has been pressuring the Senate to include chained CPI in a budget plan – a new way of calculating the cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) for Social Security benefits that would cut those benefits by $127 billion over the next 10 years.

    Our Senators need to know that there are real people behind Social Security checks. These benefits aren't expendable extras: they're key to survival for many!

    If chained CPI is included in the Senate budget, it's a big step towards having Social Security cuts enacted.

    There's no time to lose – I just made sure my Senators know I'm counting on them to stand strong against these harmful cuts to Social Security. Will you join me? It only takes a minute.
