Ask your representative to vote no on the Ryan budget

April 14, 2011 at 10:51 pm Leave a comment

As soon as tomorrow, your U.S.  Representative will vote on a House Budget Committee proposal that would have devastating  consequences for low-income Americans. 
The  budget proposed for federal fiscal year 2012 would make  significant cuts to programs that provide critical support for our friends and neighbors that struggle to afford an adequate and nutritious diet—including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly  the Food Stamp Program), and other services for children,  older people,  and people with disabilities.
Please contact your representative today to tell him/her to oppose the House budget proposal. Using our online system, you can email this message or write your own:
I  am a constituent and I strongly urge you to vote NO on the  House Budget  Committee’s Budget Resolution.  It would cut the  Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and other investments that  help Americans to be economically secure.  The federal budget simply cannot be balanced on  the backs of low-income Americans.

Your voice is urgently needed.  Please contact your representative  today to  prevent harmful cuts to SNAP—a critical nutrition program that serves more than 750,000 low-income Oregonians.

Thank you for your support,
