Take Action with NOW
Please send a message to your House member to protect programs on which women and their families depend and to oppose right-wing efforts to pass dangerous measures, such as a balanced-budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
As negotiations to pass the 2012 budget proceed, even more radical proposals are being advanced in the name of forcing harsh austerity measures on an already fragile economy. In addition to deep funding cuts to domestic programs that disproportionately serve and employ women, extremists in the House are also proposing a number of measures that would permanently shrink federal budgets. These radical proposals would throw hundreds of thousands out of work (jobs mostly held by women) and create long-term economic problems for our nation.
Conservative lawmakers are withholding their votes to increase the debt ceiling (which needs to be done in the next few weeks) in exchange for passage of their extreme and dangerous proposals. Your House member needs to hear from you!
Please tell your House member that:
1) Funding for vital social programs that help women and their families must be protected;
2) Such measures as the balanced-budget amendment, across-the-board spending caps, and reduction in the cost-of-living allowance will be harmful to the economy and to millions of working women and their families.
