Dear Brothers and Sisters,
March 20, 2013 is a National Day of Action. Call your members of Congress now at 888-659-9401 and tell them to Repeal Sequestration.
Across-the-board budget cuts -called sequestration- will cost more than 1 million jobs this year and many more jobs over the next decade. There is a simple solution to make this problem go away : repeal sequestration. It is that simple.
Republicans are using sequestration as leverage to get their way in Congress. They want to cut Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare benefits and gut essential services working people depend on, while protecting tax breaks for Wall Street and the richest 2% of Americans. The solution is to repeal sequestration -not replace it- so we can put these manufactured crises behind us and focus on the urgent problems of putting America back to work, raising wages and reducing economic inequality.
"Sequestration: a fancy word for a dumb idea." - President Richard Trumka, AFL-CIO
Thank you for your participation in this important National Day Of Action.
