Are you worried about what the future holds for Social Security, The Affordable Health Care Act, Medicare/Medicaid and the social safety net programs enacted over the past 80 years? We know many of these programs are going to be under attack by the conservatives both in Washington, D.C. and the State Houses. What can you/we do to oppose these changes and to strengthen our alliances with other groups and individuals who share our values and concerns?
