This week Congress votes on human needs appropriations, and it's a must-pass test.
Call to make sure your Representative doesn't fail - leave NO Rep. behind!
toll-free, starting Monday, November 5:
The House of Representatives will vote on the Labor-HHS-Education appropriations bill as early as Tuesday, November 6. Please call 1-888-460-0813 before the vote and ask to speak to your Rep. When connected, urge him/her to:
This vote is critically important. The President has said he will veto this bill. It will take two-thirds majority to override a veto. Without that, the modest progress in this bill will be replaced by cuts - for the seventh year in a row. We are only a few votes away from a veto-proof majority!
So please call your Rep. next week and forward this message to your networks and friends!
It is especially important for Reps. who voted against the Labor-HHS-Ed bill earlier this year to hear from their constituents. Check to see if your Rep. passed the test before: http://www.chn.org/pdf/2007/lhhsedhousevote.pdf.
