Open my email and always more mail. Washington can is demonstrating today against the new state budget proposal in Olympia and wants support. Another number to call for those who can't make it.
Dear Joseph,Two weeks ago, we invited you to join us for the We Are One week of action at the Capitol. We didn’t know then that our timing couldn’t have been better. On Monday, the House released its budget for the 2011-2013 fiscal years and there is only one word to describe it: UNJUST.Our state budget no longer respects the dignity and the values of the people of Washington. That’s why TODAY, April 6th at 3pm, hundreds of Washingtonians are going to take over the rotunda of the legislative building to say, “NO MORE. We won’t let any more people suffer while corporations and special interests get all the breaks.”Stand with us in demanding that lawmakers close tax loopholes to prevent further cuts. Rally with us at 3pm in the rotunda of the Legislative Building.Can’t make it to the capitol? Stand with us by calling your lawmakers 800-562-6000 and demand that they close tax loopholes.Tell us how it went.The House’s budget calls for deeper cuts to health care, education, services for seniors, and other core services. Not a single cut or reduction in tax breaks for special interests and corporations was included. For too long, lawmakers have used the excuse of Tim Eyman’s 2/3 majority vote to justify devastating cuts. The bottom line is a vote is a choice, and lawmakers have to choose. Who will they cut?Demand that lawmakers protect people not corporations. Demand that lawmakers cut tax loopholes. Demand a just budget.1. Join us in Olympia TODAY at 3pm in the rotunda of the Legislative Building.2. Stand with us by calling your lawmakers 800-562-6000 demanding that they close tax loopholes and report back how it went.We cannot remain silent as the lives of thousands of Washingtonians hang in the balance. Stand strong with us and exercise your voice.Thank you for all you do,the Washington CAN team
