Take action on the federal budget

NETWORK, the Catholic social justice lobby, reports today:
The budget proposal for fiscal year 2007 – H. Con Res. 83 – has now reached the House floor and will likely come to a vote this week. The House’s budget bill is considerably harsher than the Senate version in its cuts to health, housing and other human needs programs: $10.3 billion for next year alone and $167 billion over the next five years. At the same time, the budget proposal includes $228 billion in tax cuts, most of which benefit the wealthiest families in America.

Take action here.
