Tell Congress: Stop these cuts to our communities!
On March 1st at midnight, the deadline for $1.2 trillion in automatic cuts came and went without a resolution.
But it didn’t have to be this way. For months, the Republican leadership in the House and President Obama have butted heads over the sequestration — where the GOP wanted to do away with the cuts to the Pentagon, while the White House called for making millionaires and corporations pay their fair share.
And there you have it. Millions of programs, particularly those helping our most vulnerable like Head Start and unemployment benefits, will be slashed because Republicans didn’t want to ask their fat cat friends on Wall Street to pay more in taxes.
Tell Congress: Stop these cuts to our communities and our families, pull the pork from the Pentagon and make millionaires pay their fair share instead!
