Very Important - Act Now

 Congress will soon be voting on the budget.  It is vital that they hear from their constituents before the vote.  Whether you are 6 years old or 96, the budget will impact on your lives in ways you can only imagine.  The Ryan budget would be a total disaster for everyone except the very wealthy.  It would destroy the already shaky economy.  The president's budget is better, but would still add taxes to the low and middle income people.

The best plan is not up for a vote as yet.  I can't stress how important it is for every one to contact their representatives quickly and urge them to vote for this plan.  It is The People's Budget.  You can learn all about it by following the two links I have provided.  After looking at the video and reading about it, please act on it.  Send the information to everyone on your e-mail list. 

One of the sponsors of this plan is Representative Raul Grijalva, from my state of Arizona.  Not all Arizonans are right wing dimwits.

I know it takes time and people are busy, but this is very important.  Time is of the essence.

Thank you!!! I have indicated my support to my senators and Congressman. The latter is Tea Party darling who espouses their agenda so I'm awaiting his reply -- NOT!!!

*Kay Dennison - Don't hold your breath.

This is the plan I am for -- of course. But sadly, I fear that it will not happen. Still, a voice for cutting the deficit by cutting the military may more things ever so slightly in the right (correct) direction.

I think I'm giving up.....I respond to the calls to call my congresspeople, but they're totally reliable. They don't need to hear from me to do the right thing. What about the other eejits?

*Anne - I share your fear. But we can't give up.

*Xteme English - I know my representatives won't listen to me, but I am going to keep giving them hell anyhow.
