Ask Our Senators to Invest in America

In the next few days, the U.S. Senate will have an opportunity to Invest in America by voting on an appropriation bill that will help many working families in our nation. Please take a minute and ask them to do so.

The Labor-Health and Human Services-Education spending bill helps fund child care for low-income workers, job training for those who lose their jobs, veterans' health, Head Start and more. Despite modest increases in spending levels, President Bush is threatening to veto this important bill. While spending nearly one-half trillion dollars on the war in Iraq, Bush is unwilling to spend just 1.4 percent more for these vital services here in our country. Therefore, we need as many senators to vote for this spending bill as possible.

Go to the link below to send a message to Senators Lincoln and Pryor. Tell them it's time to invest in America. Tell them to vote YES for the Labor-Health and Human Services-Education appropriations bill.
