Promise to Americans: Back Off Our Benefits Bus Tour
Promise to Americans-Back Off Our Benefits Bus Tour Preview
Americans count on Social Security for retirement and rely on Medicare and Medicaid for prescription drugs and
essential care. After a lifetime of hard work and paying in, these programs allow Americans to live and age with dignity
Some in Congress want to end these guarantees by refusing to pay America’s bills. They would rather default on our
debt obligations or make extreme cuts to hard-earned benefits than protect the seniors, veterans, teachers, health care
workers, small business owners, and millions of Americans they swore to serve.
Ahead of the default crisis deadline this summer, Courage for America will drive a bus across the country to call on
House members to promise their constituents they will not play politics with their hard-earned benefits and send a
strong message to House leaders that Americans are paying attention. Kicking off in McCarthy’s district in Bakersfield,
CA at the end of March when members head home for recess and finishing up in D.C. to mark Speaker McCarthy and
the MAGA House agenda’s 100th day, the tour will elevate stories of communities impacted by extremists in the House
who are willing to put the country’s economic stability and Americans’ livelihoods at risk for political gain.
From Rep. Schweikert’s home district in Arizona to Rep. Stefanik’s in New York, the Courage for America bus will
stop in over ten districts to remind key members of the MAGA conference that Americans do not want to see programs
like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid cut, voucherized or privatized. At each tour stop, Courage for America —
joined by members of our council, local community leaders and elected officials, and other special guests — will invite
each House member to meet with their constituents and sign a promise to always protect their hard-earned benefits.
