We Say Feed the People NOT the Pentagon!
|Video: A Defining Moment|
It’s down to this; the Senate says cut $4 billion from the food stamps program, the House says cut $20 billion. The “compromise” will no doubt be somewhere in between.
We say no.
We join with Rep. Jim McGovern to ask for a “No!” vote on the farm bill, if these awful cuts remain.
We say no more hunger, at a time when more people rely on food stamps than ever before.
We say no to cutting up to 2 million poor people from food stamps, including hundreds of thousands of hungry children.
We say either restore the food stamp cuts, or vote No on the farm bill.
If you agree with us, join our “Educate Congress” letter drops this week. If you agree with us, please call and email your elected officials. We are progressives. And progressives do not pick on the weak, the poor, the hungry. Progressives do not add to the military budget, while carving up the food stamp budget.
Restore the food stamp cuts, or vote No on the farm bill.
Peace and Justice,
Executive Director, PDA
