Group Spending At Least $2 Million to Protect Social Security, Medicare

September 20, 2011

With just about two months looming before the Super Committee has to recommend how to cut spending by more than $1 trillion, the National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare is spending at least $2 million to ensure Social Security and Medicare are not touched.

The grassroots and media campaign, which begins Wednesday with an event at the group's headquarters and on mobile billboards throughout Washington, is going to "make a lot of noise" around the country, said spokeswoman Pamela Tainter-Causey. Radio and TV ads will start in mid-October, and grassroots outreach will encourage voters to tell their lawmakers that they don't want Social Security and Medicare cut at all.

So far, there have been more than 20,000 such calls to Congress, Tainter-Causey said. The group is prepared to spend even more when Congress takes up the Super Committee's recommendations.

"We'll keep banging the drum," Tainter-Causey said. "Washington is going to get the message by the time we're done."
