Budget Priorities

This week, congress will take action on a new budget. Much talk about reducing the budget has centered around cutting much needed services to those who in our country can least afford it. Cuts are planned for social services, aid to the homeless and poor, environmental regulation, health, and education services. Some are even talking about doing away with Medicare and Social Security. But no one seems to be talking about reducing our nation's military budget, which makes up 58% of our overall discretionary spending.

This is insane!

Call your member of congress and let them know that we cannot afford to make the kinds of cuts which affect our most needy citizens.
