This morning, the Senate passed a budget hurting low-income families just four days before Christmas. It included cuts to health care, child support, and educational assistance to low-income families while further lowering taxes for the wealthiest Americans and increasing the deficit for the next generations.
The vote was so narrow that Vice President Cheney cut short a diplomatic trip to the Middle East to break a 50-50 tie.
The bill has been amended to remove some of its more harmful provisions. The House must now approve the Senate’s version and could vote as early as Thursday, or as late as February. We have one last chance to reject these harmful cuts to children and struggling families.
Please call Your House Representative and ask him/her to vote no.
