======== STATE HOUSE HEARING: BUDGET FOR ALL RESOLUTION ======================

.... Wednesday, July 10, 2013
     Rally 10am – State House Steps
     Hearing 11am - room A2

-->With widespread support among voters across the state, the Massachusetts  
House and Senate will hold hearings on the Budget for All resolutions, S.1750  
and H.3211. Make sure our State Legislature tells Congress to:

 * Prevent cuts to vital programs that help all of our families: Social
   Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans benefits and housing, food and
   unemployment assistance.
 * Create and protect jobs in fields like manufacturing, education,
   transportation, and other public services.
 * End corporate tax breaks, loopholes and offshore tax havens, so that
   wealthy individuals and corporations pay their fair share!
 * Redirect Pentagon spending to meet human needs. The US war budget is
   greater than the military spending of the next 10 largest military powers
   combined. While over half of the country’s discretionary budget is being
   spent to prepare for war, millions of veterans and civilians are unable to
   get their basic needs met.

Sequestration has made this fight more important than ever.

Budget-cutters in Washington have slashed Meals on Wheels, Head Start,  
Housing, Education, Fuel Assistance, Unemployment, Health Programs, AIDS  
Housing, and Family Violence Prevention. Jobs are being threatened and lost,  
and the President wants to cut even more social programs.
