There are folks who would have us believe that we can’t change the federal budget. That we can’t afford changes that would fight inequality, reduce wasteful and destructive Pentagon spending, and shift toward a budget that better reflects our collective values.
They’re wrong, and we’re not buying it.
NPP exists to make you more powerful and to keep you informed about our federal budget so that together we can advocate for our friends and families, and our communities.
Make a contribution to NPP today to help us fight for a federal budget that reflects the values and needs of all Americans!
The White House Office of Public Engagement has scheduled a series of ten state calls (see list and specific invitation below). Note there are two calls today (Wednesday) for folks in California and Colorado and the rest through the end of this week. You are welcome to forward this invitation far and wide.
White House staff want to speak with constituents about the federal budget deficit/debt deal. There will be an opportunity to ask questions. NPP hopes you will be able to join in and ask a question and/or make a comment. (Tip: Call facilitators often give instructions about how to ask a question right at the beginning; If so, follow the instruction right away, so you can get an early spot in the line for questions.).
