Sequester

Sequester Alert from NWLC

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?

Fired up? Now is the time to tell your Members of Congress to fix the sequester!

The brutal consequences of Republican deficit hysteria

In case you've been thinking that the impending sequester is just the bitter medicine America needs to get its fiscal house in order, you might want to reconsider. This bitter medicine will knock the house off its foundation almost certainly trigger the next Great Depression.
