Across-the-board budget cuts—called sequestration—will cost more than 1 million jobs this year and many more jobs over the next decade. There is a simple solution to make this problem go away: repeal sequestration. It is that simple.
Republicans are using sequestration as leverage to get their way in Congress. They want to cut Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare benefits and gut essential services working people depend on, while protecting tax breaks for Wall Street and the richest 2% of Americans.
The solution is to repeal sequestration—not replace it—so we can put these manufactured crises behind us and focus on the urgent problems of putting America back to work, raising wages and reducing economic inequality.
On March 20th hundreds of New Yorkers stood in the cold to tell congress that enough is enough. We need jobs not more cuts. Thank you to everyone who came out. Please take a moment to call Congress and keep up the pressure, tell them to repeal sequestration today.
