Both parties can agree that the federal budget needs a trim. But we can’t afford to cut critical services for low income people to provide access to better health & education!
Here’s a sample of the programs proposed to be cut by the Republican party & passed as part of H.R. 1 on February 19, 2011. This bill is about to be debated in the Senate, and they need to pass & reconcile a continuing resolution to fund the federal government or all operations will shut down after March 4.
Please contact your Senators today & ask them to protect these programs. You can find your Senators at Congress.org.
