Call Congress on Valentine’s Day
Published 13 Feb, 2013
Congressional Republicans are taking the economy hostage again—threatening to blow it up unless vital services for working families are cut.
Call your members of Congress Feb. 14 and tell them to stand up to these bullies, reject benefit cuts for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and cancel the across-the-board budget cuts to food and workplace safety, education and more.
Instead, Congress should close loopholes for Wall Street and the richest 2%—especially loopholes that encourage job offshoring, allow corporations to pay no taxes, enrich the already wealthy and bar the government from negotiating with drug companies to lower prices.
CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS FEB. 14 AT 888-659-9401
Tell them to:
- OPPOSE BENEFIT CUTS to Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid; and
- CLOSE LOOPHOLES for Wall Street and the richest 2% of Americans and cancel sequestration.
