Macy's vs. Medicare?

Dear Friend,

From Miracle on 34th Street to the Thanksgiving Day Parade, Macy's is a powerful symbol of the holidays for many Americans.

But this holiday season, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren is part of a coalition of ultra-wealthy CEOs who are actively working to undermine the economic security of countless American families.

These CEOs are lobbying Congress to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security benefits (not to mention other important safety net programs), all to get themselves and their companies massive tax breaks.

Macy's has spent vast amounts of money to project a brand image that's entirely incompatible with the deplorable actions of its CEO. And the holiday season is the worst time for the Macy's brand to be embroiled in this kind of controversy. So if enough of us speak out, this is a fight we can win.
