Ohio Valley residents to stand up against cuts to Social Security, Medicare at Congressman Bill Johnson's Salem Office
Salem, Ohio - Veterans, seniors and other concerned citizens will meet at the Salem office of Congressman Bill Johnson (R-OH6) on Friday morning at 11:00am to stand up against proposed cuts to Social Security, Medicare and other vital programs that support local veterans, seniors and people with disabilities.
Under the Boehner/Johnson plan, Ohio veterans, seniors and people with disabilities could see major cuts to programs like transportation services, meals on wheels, and health care. Additionally, the Boehner/Johnson plan could cost Ohio up to 74,370 jobs and a loss to businesses in our state of up to $7.9 billion dollars, which could drastically impact our economic recovery and hurt the middle class.
Organizers of the local event have dubbed it "Stand up for those that stood up for us" to honor the service of our local veterans and others in the community.
Constituents of Congressman Johnson's district will meet outside of his office at 11:00am and then go inside to send a message back to Washington that the people of the Ohio Valley are standing up against cuts to Social Security, Medicare and that Ohioans cannot afford to lose more jobs and more business.
