Negotiations are under way to craft a deficit reduction package before the end of the year. Call your senators and representative today and urge them to include a circle of protection around programs for hungry and poor people. Ask them to
- include explicit protections around effective programs for hungry and poor people — programs such as SNAP, WIC, the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit,
- and balance responsible spending cuts with new tax revenue.
