Dear U.S. Representative Baron Hill,

As your constituents, and supporters of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, we are writing to urge you to please oppose any legislation, plan, or commission that will in any way harm the benefits, structure, or traditional role of Social Security or Medicare. This includes further efforts to privatize Social Security and Medicare, which will undermine the principles that have made these programs so successful.

As you know, President Roosevelt and Congress created Social Security in 1935 to protect retiring Americans from experiencing a "...poverty old age." And America's more than 36 million seniors have invested their hard-earned money in Social Security and Medicare during their long working lives.

Social Security and Medicare represent a covenant between the government and it's citizens. We therefore stand against plans that in any way will harm or diminish these critically important protections against poverty and the devastating cost of medical care.

One of the top priorities as citizens and voters is the protection of Social Security and Medicare for all current and future retires. Among your top priorities as our elected representative should be the defeat of proposals that threaten retirement security.

We urge you to work closely with the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare to protect the benefits we have worked for, paid for, and earned.
