RE: S1750, Resolutions: Budget for All
DATE: July 10, 2013
I am writing in support of S1750, the Budget For All resolution.
Resolutions such as this are an important way to bring to the attention of Congress the need to prepare budgets in a different way: to prevent cuts in social security and other benefits and in housing, food and unemployment assistance; to create jobs by investing in public services; to provide new revenue by closing corporate tax loopholes, and by redirecting military spending.
Strong support for the November 2012 ballot question in 91 cities and towns indicates that there is public support and I hope the Committee will report S1750 favorably.
