Call to Action

From Robert Mason, Community Relations Director, St. Joseph’s Mercy Care

You are urged  to call his office at 202-224-3521 to say that safety net programs, both discretionary and mandatory should be spared any further cuts.   The links below will give further information on how to take action.

Hello,

This is a call for help.  As we know, after both the Presidential and Congressional elections are over the issues of addressing budget reductions that will threaten safety net programs (Medicaid, health centers, housing assistance, etc.) will be a major priority when this session of Congress begins November 13.  Our own Senator Saxby Chambliss is one of the “Gang of Eight” working on a deficit reduction plan.  I urge you to call his office at 202-224-3521 to say that safety net programs, both discretionary and mandatory should be spared any further cuts.   The links below will give further information on how to take action. 

Thank you very much.

 

The link to the Mobilizer is http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs139/1102502633393/archive/1111... which has a lot of great resources, some of which provide state by state data.  The loss of jobs due to the Sequester is an especially good resource, found athttp://library.constantcontact.com/doc200/1102502633393/doc/Hukj8Jx....  The NDD Summit, a coalition in DC, also has great materials.  Their website is http://publichealthfunding.org/index.php/ndd_united1/reports_resour....

Thank you.
