Washington is wrestling with its self-imposed budget sequestration, set to take effect at the end of the year if our representatives don’t act to stop it. Among the items being considered for cuts are Medicare and Social Security. You may or may not believe these programs should be touched, adjusted, or otherwise “fixed” in some way, but Congress needs to hear from you now if you want these programs protected.
Ronni Bennett over at Time Goes By offers these quick, easy methods for making your voice heard in Washington. If you have something to say, today is the time to say it.
Petitions (these will be delivered to Congress as hard copies, so numbers are particularly important):
Tweets — find your representatives here
Facebook — leave messages on your representatives’ pages (google their names with the word Facebook)
Email and phone — find your representatives’ contact information here:
Email the president — Easy online form here
All-in-one email — Email all your representatives and the president with one email, one click
It’s a busy time for everyone, but Congress must act before the end of the year and so must you.
