Our advocacy isn’t done when the vote is tallied. We need to make sure your Senators know that you are watching their votes because this issue will come up again.
We can’t afford to give even more tax breaks to those who need them least when so many women and families are struggling just to make ends meet. Ending the Bush-era tax cuts on income above $250,000 would help protect programs like child care, Pell Grants, Head Start, Medicaid, and Title X family planning services.
