Dear MoveOn member,
Last Friday, my friend Congressman John Conyers introduced a bill called the "Cancel the Sequester Act of 2013"—a bill that, not surprisingly, cancels the sequester.
In case you haven't heard, the sequester is an endless series of irrational and cruel budget cuts. Fortunately, since Congress invented the sequester, Congress can also kill it.
Here's the entire bill:
"Section 251A of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 is repealed."
That's it. That's the solution, in a single sentence. No loopholes. No self-imposed crises. Just one sentence.
Join us by signing a petition in support of just-say-no to the sequester. 75,000 people already have.
I thought you'd like to know that the end to our current crisis is at hand. And you can help. Join us.
This petition was created by the organization Social Security Works on SignOn.org, the progressive, nonprofit petition site. SignOn.org is sponsored by MoveOn Civic Action, which is not responsible for the contents of this or other petitions posted on the site. Representative Alan Grayson and Social Security Works didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.
