Received this e-mail today from Senator John Walsh's (D. MT) campaign:

We all know that we need to reduce the debt, but we can't do it on the backs of our seniors. That means – when it comes to spending cuts – Medicare's off the table.

I won’t let Washington cut the benefits our seniors have earned, while corporations that send American jobs overseas get tax breaks.

More than 46 million Americans rely on Medicare. We have smart, responsible ways to find savings, like allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices – that alone would save hundreds of billions of dollars.

I am taking a stand. My colleagues and I are fighting to keep the Medicare eligibility age from being raised – and we need you.

Stand with us by signing our petition to pass the Medicare Protection Act. Let’s keep Congressman Steve Daines and his allies from hurting seniors in order to serve themselves.

Click here to tell Congress to show some courage by protecting the benefits seniors have earned and depend on.

Congressman Daines supported the disastrous Ryan budget, which would privatize Medicare and turn it into a voucher system that’ll hit seniors directly in their pocketbooks when they can least afford it.

That’s not fiscally responsible – that’s irresponsible.

I won’t stand for it. That’s why I was recently endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. But protecting Medicare will take more than an army of one, or a few. It will take you.

Let’s send a strong message to Congress that we want the Medicare Protection Act passed now.

Thank you for standing with our seniors,

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
