Contact your senators this week to urge a “NO” vote on the Senate Budget Resolution!
The full Senate is expected to vote on its fiscal year 2018 Budget Resolution on Thursday.
The Senate Budget Resolution would set up a process for consideration of massive tax cuts for the wealthy, paid for by assuming trillions of dollars in cuts to government programs over the next 10 years. The Senate’s resolution would harm American families by threatening critical programs that serve low- and moderate- income households, including SNAP, low-income tax credits, Medicaid, and programs that assist persons with disabilities.
YOU can help TODAY with just 5 minutes of your time!
Make a Phone Call
Please take a few minutes to make a phone call to your senators to urge them to vote NO on the Senate Budget Resolution.
Call 202-225-3121 for the Capitol Switchboard.
Tell them that you oppose tax cuts for the wealthiest that would ultimately be paid for by cuts to safety net programs like SNAP and other critical programs that serve low- and moderate-income families.
