Tell Senators to Vote to Prevent Harmful Cuts Due to Start in March

More than $85 billion in cuts to current year spending are now scheduled to start on March 1. They will impose indiscriminate and needless cuts to domestic programs: denying WIC nutrition aid to 600,000 children and mothers, leaving 70,000 children without Head Start and 30,000 without child care, cutting unemployment benefits, denying rental housing vouchers to 125,000 families, cutting home energy and homeless aid, education and training, and much more. Medicare will be cut by $11.2 billion. Senators can stop these senseless cuts to vital services by voting for the American Family Economic Protection Act to be introduced by Senate Democrats (a vote is expected February 27 or 28). This bill stops the cuts to human needs programs, replacing them with a minimum tax on millionaires, ending certain corporate tax loopholes, and reductions in farm subsidies. Please tell your Senators to vote for this bill and to oppose other plans that keep or worsen cuts that will harm our people and stunt economic growth.

The republiCONS WANT this to happen. They voted for it, they refuse to work on it, they left town for 9 days...
They want to blame the President. Nothing new...it's all they have done since day one.
But poll after poll shows THEY will be BLAMED. May it come back and bite them in their dead asses!
I'm tired of their games, their lies, their bullshit! They need to put the country ahead of their party!!!

We’re collecting nothing from the big banks; instead we’re demanding sacrifice from the elderly, the disabled, the poor, the young, the middle class - pretty much everybody, in fact, who isn’t “too big to fail.” Representative John Conyers understands that and released "The Cancel the Sequester Act of 2013 (HR 900)." It is a simple one sentence bill that, if passed, would completely eliminate the sequester.

janice b. mentions Rep. Conyers' "Cancel the Sequester Act." SignOn.org has a petition on that one:

So simple--"Cancel the sequester"--yet so difficult for the GOP . . .

lake has got it fixed ..... wants more information but no matter what I tried I could not get his "information" boxes to come up.

I'm going to give him a phone call and I know I MUST be courteous.

In fact, I think I'll call both of them Senators living off of our money.

It is incomprehensible to me how our government finds the billions of dollars spent on weapons- and war-related programs, but wants to cut programs that help the elderly, disabled, veterans and WIC, of all things! I used to be a cashier and often checked out families making grocery purchases with their WIC benefits for things like milk, eggs, beans and bread. To deny these elementary foods is unbelievable! Shame on our legislators. I hope they will have to answer for their actions one day!
