Rally around Americans on this one! Senators and Representatives, Listen. This budgeting and taxing (funding) in American has to be finally done right!
Our futures need to be planned right.
BY THE WAY, I think that this could be the campaign issue or slogan through 2012 : “What kind of country cuts food aid to hungry pregnant women and children in the middle of an economic crisis—while giving a giant tax break to billionaires?”–KAS
Subject: Stop cuts to aid for hungry pregnant women and children
The Republicans just released their budget and it is filled with
brutal cuts to vital services–like aid for hungry pregnant women and
children. Since they control the House, it could become law. So we need to
create an outcry so loud that the Democrats can stop it.
I signed a petition urging Democrats to fight these horrible cuts. Can you
join me at the link below?
What kind of country cuts food aid to hungry pregnant women and children in the middle of an economic crisis—while giving a giant tax break to billionaires?
The Republicans are winning the battle over the budget, hands down, even though what they’re fighting for is, put simply, immoral. A cut of at least $400 million from a crucial program that puts food on the table for pregnant women and small children. Crippling the EPA. Completely eliminating funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, AmeriCorps, and high-speed rail.1
Instead of creating jobs, the Republican budget would destroy 700,000 of them. Our only hope is a public outcry strong enough to stiffen Democrats’ spines and cause Republicans to back down.
Sign our petition to Congress and the president, asking them to say “no” to these brutal cuts.
The petition says: “Cutting food aid to hungry women and children in the middle of an economic crisis is wrong. Please oppose the devastating cuts in the Republican budget.”
Thanks for all you do.
