From the National Women's Law Center's email today:
Did you see the news? Like magic, just before Members of Congress headed home (many on airplanes), they quickly passed a bill to prevent long delays at airports — delays caused by the draconian federal budget cuts known as the "sequester," including furloughs of air traffic controllers. How convenient!
From this experience we learn that Congress actually can act quickly — really, really quickly — if it wants to. So we have a question for you, Congress: What about fixing the rest of the sequester — especially the cuts to essential services for low-income women and their families?
