Tonight, Paul Ryan will deliver a nationally-televised speech at the Republican National Convention. I am here in Tampa to push back and set the record straight, and I need your help now.

You will hear a lot of attacks on President Obama and health care reform. But here's what Romney and Ryan won't tell the American people: What they won't tell us is the reality that the Romney-Ryan plan would slash Medicare benefits for seniors to pay for more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.

These next 48 hours are critical to ensuring that voters have the facts on the Republicans' radical budget plans.

Stand with President Obama: Donate $X or more to the DCCC's Rapid Response Fund and your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar

If Romney and Ryan get their way, seniors' Medicare would be replaced with a voucher that drops in value as health costs rise. Seniors will have to eat rising costs while millionaires like Mitt Romney get a tax cut.

The Republicans, backed by their Super PAC allies and secret donors, will do anything they can to distort the truth about their Medicare plans and go on the attack against Obamacare.

As a former DCCC Chairman, I know that we have to respond quickly and forcefully. That's where you come in:
