I pledge to speak up for America’s kids by urging Congress to make the right choices to support public education and working families.
It’s time to stop giving tax breaks to the wealthiest two percent and corporations, while sticking kids and working families with the tab. If Congress fails to do the right thing, massive across-the-board cuts could mean another $3 billion taken from our schools – hurting students and costing jobs.
In real terms, those cuts mean kids packed into overcrowded classrooms, fewer services for special education students, and four-year-olds cheated out of early childhood education.
Instead of more cuts to vital services Americans depend on, like schools, health care, and Social Security, we need a good deal — one that protects what’s important to me, my family, and my community.
By signing this pledge, I am signaling my commitment to hold my members of Congress accountable. It’s time for the wealthiest and corporations to pay their fair share!
