You voted for a “Budget for All”. Now it’s time to have the Massachusetts Legislature send your message to Congress and the President

In the big 2012 election, Massachusetts voted for the Budget for All public policy question, passing it by an average 3 to 1 margin in each of the 91 cities and towns where it appeared on the ballot (including towns that voted for Romney or Scott Brown). That referendum called on state senators and representatives to vote for a resolution from the Mass. state legislature calling upon Congress and the President them to:

Prevent cuts to vital programs that help all of our families: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans benefits, and housing, food and unemployment assistance.

Create and protect jobs in fields like manufacturing, education, transportation, and other public services.

End corporate tax breaks, loopholes and offshore tax havens, so that wealthy individuals and corporations pay their fair share.

Redirect Pentagon spending to meet human needs. The US war budget is greater than the military spending of the next 10 largest military powers combined. While over half of the country’s discretionary budget is being spent to prepare for war, millions of us are unable to get their basic needs met.

Will the Legislature respect the people’s vote? The Massachusetts House and Senate will hold hearings on the Budget for All resolutions, S.1906 and H.3144.

See you at the State House October 28!
