Support a budget that works for everyone

Progressive Congress logoA major budget fight is looming in Congress. After the elections are over, Republicans are aiming to slash Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other domestic spending in order to avoid cuts to the military and the expiration of the Bush tax cuts for the rich.

Help strengthen the Democratic negotiating position in this upcoming fight by becoming a citizen co-sponsor of the Deal for all (PDF)—a resolution from the Congressional Progressive Caucus urging all Democrats to stand up for a budget that is not balanced on the backs of the middle class.

Join with Daily Kos, Progressive Congress, and Democracy for America by signing the petition telling all Democrats to adopt the following four principles in the upcoming budget fight:

Be it resolved, any deal on taxes and spending to replace the Budget Control Act –

(1) must not cut Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security benefits;
(2) must contain serious revenue increases, including closing corporate tax loopholes and increasing individual income tax rates for the top 2%;
(3) must significantly reduce defense spending to focus our armed forces on combating 21st century risks; and
(4) must promote economic growth and expand economic opportunity by including strong levels of job-creating federal investments in areas such as infrastructure and education.
