Come on, Democrats, wake up.Social Security and Medicare are binding legal contracts with all workers and retirees.

They were established to protect against old age and to provide affordable health care. Millions of senior Americans have paid into Social Security and Medicare all their working lives and depend on these programs to provide guaranteed benefits.

Do you want these benefits to stay in place? Then it's a no-brainer. Vote straight Democrat on Nov. 6.
