The Stand

Call Congress on Valentine’s Day, tell them ‘Stop Heartless Cuts!’

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WASHINGTON, D.C. — 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 on Thursday, Feb. 14 — a national call-in day on Valentine’s Day — 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.
