From the Steps of the White House to the Front of the Capitol – Tweet the White House and Congressional Leadership
As Fiscal Cliff negotiations continue to heat up, we need to keep up the momentum. Urge President Obama and Congressional Leadership via social media to protect and strengthen SNAP and reject any SNAP cuts that might be on the table during negotiations. In addition, urge the President to protect tax credits for low-income working families, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC).
It’s time to rally - here’s how you can participate:
- Tuesday, Dec. 11: Speaker of the House John Boehner, @SpeakerBoehner
- Wednesday, Dec. 12: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, @SenatorReid
- Thursday, Dec. 13: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, @NancyPelosi
- Friday Dec. 14: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, @McConnellPress
As of December 11, 2012, H.R. 760 -- a resolution opposing cuts to SNAP -- has over 100 co-sponsors.
