Tell Congress: We Need a Budget That Works for All

Our nation’s budget should reflect and respond to the needs of everyday individuals and families. How we spend money says a lot about our nation’s priorities and it is vital to securing our future and our children’s future. We need a budget that not just keeps us safe and secures us but also provides opportunities and gives us all the chance to succeed.

Tell Your Representative: Stop Congress from Gutting Health Care and Medicaid

House committees have approved an extreme bill that will deny health coverage to millions of people, and make additional millions pay thousands of dollars more for their insurance – more than many will be able to pay.  This bill is even more shocking because it hands tax cuts of at least $600 billion to the rich and to insurance, drug, and other health industry corporations.  It is headed to the House floor later in March.  But it is not a done deal:  hospitals, physicians, and other powerful players are voicing opposition.  Please join in. Please tell your representative to oppose the health care repeal legislation and spread the word to everyone you know.

Add Your Organization to CHN’s Letter to the New Administration and Congress Reaffirming the Principles and Priorities of the Strengthening America’s Values and Economy (SAVE) for All Campaign

The Coalition on Human Needs and hundreds of national, state, and local organizations are part of the Strengthening America’s Values and Economy (SAVE) for All Campaign. SAVE for All agrees on four guiding principles- that federal priorities must (1) protect and assist low-income and vulnerable people; (2) invest in broadly shared economic growth and jobs; (3) increase revenues from fair sources; and (4) seek savings from reducing waste in the Pentagon and elsewhere. This campaign is currently circulating a sign-on letter for organizations addressed to the incoming Administration and Congress. There is also a petition for individuals to sign. You can read the full letter here: letter (pdf).
