Congress to Vote on Budget Cuts
October 28, 2005
On Wednesday, October 26, the President urged Congress to "push the envelope" and make deep budget cuts in order to pay for hurricane relief and "show the American people we’re capable of being wise about the money and at the same time meet our priorities." WRONG.
Tell Congress these cuts are not wise and that reducing human needs programs like foster care, food stamps and Medicaid are not our priorities.
Committees in both the House and Senate have passed various versions of a budget reconciliation bill and votes are likely to occur early in November on both the House and Senate floor. Members from both parties are concerned about these cuts and our voices must support their protests. Our concerns have resonated and we must continue the pressure.
Send an email to Congress today, demanding that they not cut aid to the poor, uninsured, hungry and homeless!
