Coalition On Human Needs

Why is there so much emphasis on recording your views with the White House?

The other day we asked you to
call (1-888-245-0215 toll-free) now we’re asking you to write. We still want to ensure that a deficit reduction deal does not cut programs for low- and moderate-income people. We want a deal that protects American families in this difficult economic time. President Obama has been meeting with Congressional leaders this week and has been talking about a fair approach that asks millionaires and billionaires to share in reducing the deficit.  Faced with opponents who want to protect the wealthy at the expense of the poor, he needs our support now.  The Administration also needs to hear that you care about protecting low-income people, because threats to Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP, and other services remain very grave. If you haven't called yet, please call. If you prefer to write, please click the "submit a message" button below.

You'll be redirected to the White House comment form. Please share the following message with the President and Vice President – you can simply copy and paste it into the comment box; or of course feel free to put your message in your own words:

Please hold firm and prevent harmful cuts or caps to low-income programs in the negotiations to reduce the deficit. Please insist on fair increases in revenues to prevent reckless cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, and other essential services.
Take action today by asking the White House to protect our families in the deficit reduction deal.

Call 1-888-245-0215 toll-free, and you'll be connected to the White House Comment Line.  Feel free to use the message above in blue - or put your own message into words.
