Tell your U.S. representative:
• Oppose the proposed FY 2013 budget. If the extreme cuts are approved, most of our federal assistance programs will cease to exist by 2050.
• Don't cut SNAP! The proposed budget cuts SNAP by billions, sets new barriers to access the program, and caps funding levels. This could mean millions of Americans could get kicked off the program.
• The deal reached in the Budget Control Act of 2011 should not be broken. The lower spending level in this budget leads to exponentially higher cuts to programs for hungry and poor people and it eliminates the protections Congress agreed to in August.
Call your U.S. representative at 1-800-326-4941 by Thursday, March 29. If you're on Twitter, tweet your support for a circle of protection around programs for poor and hungry people.
