Tell Congress to Oppose Fiscal Commission Legislation

Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI) and Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA) in the House and Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) in the Senate have introduced bills to create a “fiscal commission.”

The commission would be tasked with recommending cuts to programs like Social Security and Medicare with no amendments or proper debate. There is no requirement that the commission’s deliberations would be open to the public, allowing politicians to fast-track cuts to these critical benefits behind closed doors.
