Call Congress Toll Free
On October 17 and 18, the American Friends Service committee is sponsoring toll free lines to the Capital switchboard. Dial 1-800-426-8073 and ask to speak to your Rep or Senator.
When they answer the phone, say something like: My name is -----, and I live in ---. I would like Senator ____ to oppose the cuts being proposed in the budget reconciliation process. The right priorities are protecting people from hardship, sickness, and investing in housing, education and jobs. More tax cuts to the wealthy should not be a priority - should not even be a consideration.
Repeat process with your other senator and representative. Be patient if the lines are busy - they should be!!
