No on the America First Budget

The image above is from the Washington Post.

Recently President Donald Trump unveiled his America First Budget that increases military and defense spending and cuts money to nearly every other federal agency from NASA to the State Department. We need to let Congress know, we do not approve of this budget and neither should they.

PHONE CALL SCRIPT:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling the office of [NAME OF REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR] because I am a constituent. I live at [ADDRESS, CITY, and STATE] and my phone number is [PHONE NUMBER].

I’m calling to ask the [REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR] to oppose by all means President Trump’s America First Budget. We already spend more money than any other nation on our military and defense by a huge margin. We need to continue fund agencies like the EPA, Education Department, State Department, NASA, and Energy Department that help keep us safe from nonmilitary threats like climate change and move the country forward with innovative ideas and discoveries. Please do not vote for this budget.

I ask that my representatives in Congress raise their voice on this issue and any others like it that arise.

You will be hearing from me on more issues in the future. Thank you for your time.
