Congress Punishing Families Again

The FAIR TAXES FOR ALL national coalition has designated Wednesday, March 10 a National Call In Day to oppose the Senate Budget Resolution. PAFCO and many other local member groups are members of this national coalition protecting federal funding for education, health, social services, environmental and other needed citizen programs.

Call our Senators at 202-224-3121 (or at numbers below) on Wednesday March 10 and urge them to oppose the proposed Budget Resolution, because it cuts Medicaid, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and other children's programs, while cutting taxes so that we would still have a budget deficit of $200 billion in 2005.

The message:

• Ask them to vote against the reconciliation instruction to cut Medicaid and the EITC, against the two year budget cap, and for any amendment that would require tax cuts to be balanced by other increases in revenues. Senator McCain is a key Senate vote. Make sure to call his office to urge him to vote against this budget resolution.
• Urge members of Congress to enact a responsible budget resolution with fair tax policies that result in adequate revenue to assure the well-being of America’s children and families.

Please take action so these twisted budget rules can be defeated. If these rules are not defeated, poor and vulnerable families will suffer from the budget cuts that will result. Specific addresses and phone numbers are below if you prefer not to go through the switchboard number provided above.
