Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Invitation to Join Them In La Crosse on Thursday

Join us tomorrow in La Crosse. State Rep. Steve Doyle and County Board Chair Tara Johnson will join local retirees, nursing aides, and families of the disabled to discuss choices facing Congress that could threaten vital services and the economy. Can we count on you to be there?

It is time for the wealthiest Americans and big corporations start paying their fair share - now's not the time to cut critical programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Families living paycheck to paycheck and all Americans working hard to make a better life for themselves won this election. By electing Tammy Baldwin to the U.S. Senate and re-electing President Barack Obama, Wisconsinites rejected a rigged system that only works for the wealthiest few and chose an economy that works for everyone.

Join us for tomorrow's 1 p.m. news conference in the lobby of the County Administrative Center,
400 N. Fourth St. In Wisconsin, Medicare provides health insurance for over 950,000 seniors - and Medicaid pays for more than two out of three nursing home residents are paid for by Medicaid. Funding for these critical programs is at risk in the lame duck budget session starting next Tuesday.

In Solidarity,

Phil Neuenfeldt, President
Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer
