Thanks to everyone who took the time to call or e-mail their Members of Congress yesterday. But we’re not out of the woods yet!
We need to keep the calls & e-mails coming to ensure that our Members of Congress understand what’s at stake. If Republicans are successful in pushing through staggering, life-threatening cuts to our health care and human services programs – it means more seniors will go hungry or homeless; fewer kids and families will have access to health care; and fewer resources will be available to invest in our nation’s economic recovery. Yet at the same time, the Republicans are stepping up efforts to ensure that billionaires and wealthy corporations will continue to enjoy outrageous tax breaks and loopholes while the rest of the country struggles.
That’s why we need to send a message to our Members of Congress TODAY! Please call or e-mail Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and your Representative in the House!

Once again — here are some key messages/talking points to help you as well:
- I’m calling/writing to ask that you please continue to stand firm against steep cuts to social security, health care, and other vital programs.
- Deep cuts to critical, life-sustaining programs like these will place seniors at grave risk, make it harder for low-income families to access quality, affordable healthcare, and obstruct our nation’s and our state’s much-needed economic recovery.
- There are more viable and humane solutions out there — allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire and institute the Schakowsky millionaire tax rates; end tax credits for the oil industry; and institute a Financial Speculation tax.
