Last week, devastating budget cuts went into effect because Congress failed to compromise -- with some Republicans choosing to protect tax loopholes for millionaires and billionaires over programs that millions of middle-class families rely on.
This is frustrating, and it's at times like these when Washington feels more broken than ever. But here's what President Obama had to say:
"The question is: Can the American people help persuade their members of Congress to do the right thing? And I have a lot of confidence that over time, if the American people express their displeasure about how something is working, that eventually Congress responds."
So today, we're asking that Organizing for Action supporters do one easy thing to make their voice heard: Tweet at your member of Congress.
Tweeting is a public way to demand a response from your legislator -- it's one of the most direct ways to get your point across.
Tweet at Rep. Rob Wittman right now and demand action:
Organizing for Action
P.S. -- Keep an eye on the hashtag #CutsWeCantAfford all day to see folks around the country speaking up, too.
Let's finish what we started. Chip in $25 or more to Organizing for Action, the grassroots movement that will get the job done.
Contributions or gifts to Organizing for Action are not tax deductible.
