House Cancels Budget Cut Vote
This just in from the National Women's Law Center:
Two Important Victories in the Budget Battle!
This afternoon, the House Republican leadership cancelled the expected vote on the spending reconciliation bill -- because they didn't have the votes to pass it. And, this morning, at the last minute, Senate Finance Committee Chair Charles Grassley (R-IA) cancelled a scheduled mark-up of the Senate reconciliation tax cut plan, because in the face of moderate opposition, it couldn’t get through the Committee.
Your calls and e-mails made the difference: Members of Congress got the message that cutting services for women and their families to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy few are the wrong priorities. Please thank members of both parties who stood up for America's families -- and call on them to continue to do so.
This fight isn't over yet -- but the momentum is on our side! Congratulations!
