The Bush Administration released its fiscal year 2007 budget which slashed Medicare by $36 billion over the next five years and $105 billion over the next ten years.
These are cuts to hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, ambulance services, and other providers and increases in Medicare premiums for certain beneficiaries. At the same time that the budget slashes Medicare funding, it protects the special interests, leaving intact the $10 billion Medicare slush fund for HMOs. We can't let our parents and grandparents pay the price for Republican corruption.
We must stop the reckless Bush Administration agenda. Join the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in sending this petition to tell Congress to put our seniors ahead of their big industry donors. Democrats are ready to act but need Republicans to vote against it as well. There are simply not enough Democrats to stop it without bipartisan support. Helping elect Democrats in the November election will ensure a Democratic Majority who would restore the People's House once again to the people putting our seniors first.
Sign the petition and tell Congress to Protect our Seniors from Billions In Harmful Medicare Cuts!

IAVA Joins Forces with "Veteran Films" Project
IAVA has teamed up with CA-based Sand Storm Productions to present the Veteran Films project. OIF Veteran Sean Huze, the mastermind behind Sand Storm Productions and this project, had this to say about the project's first film:
"Homecoming is the first in what we hope will be a series of short films related to the war in Iraq and/or the veterans' experience upon return. Homecoming focuses on the turmoil war inflicts on its combatants and their families and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Produced by Sand Storm Productions in association with Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the hope is that the film will raise both awareness and funds so that IAVA can make this veteran's issue a part of mainstream media and conversation."
