TAKE ACTION: Please send a message to your representative right away urging support for the Back to Work FY 2014 budget proposed by the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC). This budget plan will truly help women and their families by reducing the federal deficit sensibly and humanely through job creation rather than drastic cuts in social programs.
Tell your representative that you strongly oppose the Republican budget plan, which is a retread of last year's failed Romney-Ryan budget, enhancing tax breaks for corporations and billionaires while sticking it to the most vulnerable -- disproportionately women, especially women of color. Let them know, also, that the Democratic leadership's proposal, while far superior to the Republicans', falls short of the aggressive jobs program we need right now. The CPC's Back to Work proposal is the best of the three.
Votes in the House on the Progressives' Back to Work plan are set to begin on Wednesday (3/20), followed by the Democratic leadership's plan, and then debate and voting on the potentially devastating Ryan budget.
Take action NOW!
