Mitt Romney and President Obama will be in New York City on Thursday, October 18, for the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner. This is the only NYC event with both presidential candidates present.

STAND UP to cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security
STAND UP to cuts to our Social Safety Net
STAND UP to Austerity

…with an equal opportunity protest against BOTH presidential candidates.

When: Thursday, October 18, 5:30 PM
Where: The Waldorf Astoria Hotel
301 Park Avenue @ E.50th St, NYC

Changes to Medicare have been a central issue in the debates. STAND UP for the only change that needs to be made: Improving and Expanding Medicare for All – implementing a universal healthcare system in the United States.

Join Physicians for a National Health Program-NY Metro and others against cuts to our social safety net – Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

“When Paul Ryan was picked as Mitt Romney’s running mate back in August, Medicare was pushed to center stage as the main issue of the elections. Ryan is the architect of the plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program–a move that would end the popular and efficient public program as we know it and jeopardize the health of close to 50 million elderly and disabled Americans. He and other Republican leaders also want to block-grant Medicaid. While most Democrats oppose these proposals, they have their own plans to drastically cut these safety net programs if they enter into an anticipated ‘grand bargain’ on the deficit.”
