Act Now!: Say 'NO' to the House Proposed Budget

Hundreds of Bread members have called Congress since last week’s action alert on the proposed fiscal year 2013 budget being debated by the House of Representatives. Let’s keep up the momentum!

If you haven’t done so, please tell your representative in Congress to oppose this budget.

We have analyzed the budget, and the news is bad for people who are struggling:

  • The proposed budget cuts the highly effective Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program by 17 percent over the next 10 years. This will put millions more American families at risk of hunger.
  • The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reports that the cuts are so severe that most of the government—aside from health care, Social Security, and defense—would cease to exist by 2050.

The next 24 hours are crucial as the House of Representatives plans to vote on this budget tomorrow, March 29. Please call your representative now. Use our toll-free number, 1-800-326-4941. If the line is busy, please redial and call again. 

+Contact your member of Congress and ask them to oppose the proposed House budget.
