There is so much going on in the news, but the National Budget is going to make a very big impact on our values. There are so many of my core values not included in that budget. “Deep cuts are expected on Medicaid, housing, nutrition assistance, legal aid, and other programs families rely on.” (link from Indivisible)
Please call your Senators, Congresspersons, State House and State Senate members and say you want a budget that will benefit families. The Congressional Progressive Caucus has written a terrific budget that benefits people: Congressional Progressive Caucus Budget.
Spend the week reading the budget, picking out your favorite items, and speaking with your family and friends about your priorities. As you feel more comfortable and learn more, consider tweeting, putting your views on Facebook, and writing a letter to the editor. Use your creativity and express yourself to the world! Start a wave of caring and compassion!
Have a great week!
