Another Attack Underway

But the Republicans in Congress are beating the war drums for more attacks. Their tax code and budget efforts would cut away seniors’ rights in order to provide giveaways to the very rich.

Organizer Judy Bryant writes, “On Monday, the AFL-CIO will notify state Federations and Central Labor Councils that they will be prioritizing mobilization around the GOP budget. In turn, we at the Alliance will send out a Tax and Budgets toolkit. The Alliance patch through line –(866) 828-4162 – is set to contact Members of the House next week and then will switch to the Senate the following week.”
