Tell The Catfood Commission What You Think

The President’s Deficit Commission (popularly known as the Catfood Commission)  has been hearing from organizations and experts since April.  Now, as they begin their deliberations, they need to hear from all of us:

1.  Don’t extend the tax breaks for the wealthiest households.  These tax cuts were the largest contributor to the deficits that accumulated between 2001 and 2007.  Not extending them will save $1 trillion over the next 10 years,

2.  Cut Pentagon spending substantially.  This is the “25% solution.”  Use the recommendations of the Sustainable Defense Task Force to bring Pentagon spending in line with what our nation actually needs and can afford.

3.  Invest in programs that create jobs, assist those hardest hit by the recession, and take care of our elders – on whose shoulders we stand – and children – who will create our future.

Do not try to the cut the deficit by cutting social security and medicare.

Tell your neighbors how you feel, and tell the Commission.  E-mail them at commission@fc.eop.gov.
