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!

TAX BREAK DISASTER & ILLEGAL WAR

Thanks to the Bush Regime, the nations Treasury has
been looted because of tax cuts for the rich and an
illegal War in Iraq.

Now the Bush regime plans to loot the nations domestic
programs, to cover more tax cuts for the super rich...

The national debt on November 01:
$8,032,811,700,768.35
Your share of the national debt: $26,995.78

More tax cuts for the rich means that your share of
the burden increases...
