Call Congress about the Budget Resolution

The House will vote on the Budget Resolution Thursday or Friday – Please call!
  1. Dial the Capitol Switchboard 1-888-245-0215 [toll-free] or 202-224-3121 and ask for the office of your Representative
  2. Ask to speak to the staff person working on budget issues
  3. Identify yourself as a constituent

Message to Representatives:

Please vote NO on the House Budget Committee's Budget Resolution.
It would slash Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, education... in fact, all the investments that help Americans to be economically secure. People with disabilities disproportionately rely on government services to live, learn and work in their communities. These services assist many people with disabilities to live independently in the community avoiding costly institutional care and increasing the opportunities to work and pay taxes.
