The current situation in Washington, DC by the U.S. Congress is an abomination! They are playing politics with the poor and with the US economy. It is unacceptable! Community Action must stand up to this nonsense!! I ask that you contact your U.S. Congressmen and Senators right away.
Can we tolerate a country where, within a short period of time, there will be no meals for homebound elderly, no formula for infants, no deliveries for oil heat households, and no social security checks sent out? For the millions being harmed by Congress' actions we plead, "Open Up the U.S. Government". America is the world's bright light. Mr. Speaker, you and the minority members of the House Republicans whom you lead are tarnishing that light and bringing misery to the innocent victims of your political fight.
