Several groups are sponsoring a rally.

Rally at Senator

McCaskill’s office

regarding federal budget

Friday, June 17th, 4p.m.-5p.m.

5850 Delmar, Suite A

St. Louis, MO 63112

Here’s the message Jobs with Justice sent out:

We are rallying to persuade Senator McCaskill to meet with community stakeholders regarding the current proposed federal budget.

The current proposed federal budget has massive cuts to vital federal public services, programs including Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security and to public employee wages. We must fight to protect critical health and retirement programs.

This event is sponsored by Missouri Jobs with Justice, American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), Missouri Health Care for All, Missouri Pro-Vote, The Missouri Budget Project, and Metropolitan Congregations United.

We will ask Senator McCaskill to oppose any legislation that will continue tax breaks for the very rich and big corporations at the expense of federal workers and the services they provide. Missouri’s veterans, farmers, and working families depend on government services, such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and others. A cut to the federal budget and workforce is a cut to Missouri! Join us in asking Senator McCaskill to stand strong against the proposed cuts to Federal Services!

Bring your friends, neighbors, family and co-workers – people you know who benefit from Federal programs

If you can’t attend this rally, send Senator McCaskill a note asking her to meet with community stakeholders and public workers before she cuts a deal on the budget!

I’ll be there to film it and write about it. Brave a bit of heat to put some heat on Claire.
