April Events to Support Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid in Las Cruces, Albuquerque

From NM Alliance for Retired Americans:
Greetings Social Security supporters. Tea Party got you down? Join us this month to learn about the political attacks on our treasured public programs -- Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid -- and be the best advocate you can be for a strong Middle Class in these dangerous times.

While the Repubs' budget proposals mock working families and try to balance the budget on our backs, we at the NM Alliance have been hard at work with our partners, OLE NM, the National Committee to Preserve and Protect Medicare and Social Security, and Social Security Works to mobilize our state against the lying liars who would shred our safety nets while enjoying public benefits for themselves.

Here's a calendar of events for the rest of April. Come on out and stand up for your public programs before it's too late! Spread the word!

Wednesday, April 13, Las Cruces area:

"Hands-Off our Social Security" presentations with our National Committee, OLE partners. Please spread the word. Click for information on how Social Security Works for New Mexico (pdf).
