Demand Rep. John Kline (R-MN) Vote For A Moral Budget!

This holiday season, Congress will face a decision about whether or not to cut vital services like food stamps and child care from low income, working familes. We must make sure they do what is right.

Representative John Kline has already been busy this month voting himself a raise, voting tax cuts to the wealthy and then voting to pay for it with cuts to healthcare for working families and elderly. Let's see if we can't get him to vote Minnesota values instead of Bu$hism.

Join others with others for a Candle Light Vigil outside John Kline's Office (101 W. Burnsville Parkway in Burnsville) on Wednesday, December 14 at 6:00 - 7:00 PM. It's time we demand a budget that will be fair and just. Budgets are moral documents! They are about priorities and choices.

In the wake of the recent hurricanes, Congress has the chance to reassess its plans and set a new course—one that places a priority on meeting the needs of vulnerable families, including those directly impacted by the hurricanes, rather than cutting vital programs or dispensing unnecessary tax breaks to the wealthy that pile more debt on future generations. Congress can and should choose to do the right thing this fall.
