Lobbyists and billionaires have all the political access they want. The only way the rest of us can be heard is through emails and calls to our representatives, and through petitions like this one. These gestures are heard. Politicians want to be re-elected, and an massive show of opposition always gets their attention.

The American people overwhelmingly want these programs protected. These wealthy influence peddlers want them cut. The outcome of these negotiations will be an excellent test of our democratic processes: Do they respond to the people, or the privileged?

That's why we encourage you to add your name to this letter from Sen. Sanders, and more. The Campaign for America's Future and Social Security Works are cosponsoring this campaign, together with Sen. Sanders' Defending Social Security Caucus, the AFL-CIO, the Alliance for Retired Americans, the Center for Community Change, Credo Action, Daily Kos, DFA, MoveOn, the National Organization for Women, the Other 98%, Progressives United and USAction.

The risk is real. The time is short. The petition is here. Please sign it.
