Stop Sequestration Now!

Stop Sequestration Now!

Let’s be honest – sequestration is just plain stupid. It would slash funding across the board for nearly every federal account, with no regard to how that will harm vital programs and services.

We’ve got to stop it.

That’s why we need you to call both of your senators and your representative right now. Yes, we’re asking you to make three calls. But it will only take a few minutes, and that’s what it’s going to take to win this fight.

Call each of your three lawmakers toll free at 1-888-775-3148. Follow the prompts to be connected directly to your lawmakers’ offices. Leave the following message with the receptionist:

Do not use a government phone, government computer, or duty time to contact congress.

“My name is _________ and I’m calling from _________ (give your city). Please tell the senator (or representative) to stop the sequester right now. And ask the senator (or representative) to do so by asking the very rich, big corporations and Wall Street to pay their fair share. No more cuts for the working Americans who have already sacrificed enough. Thank you for taking my call.”

Again, don’t forget to call both of your senators and your representative.

Thanks for making your calls and for helping to stop the sequester madness.

Do not use a government phone, government computer, or duty time to contact congress.
