MoveOn to Rosa: Cut Military Spending Not Social Security

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

MoveOn, the progressive advocacy group, will hold a protest today at the New Haven headquarters of Democratic U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro.

The group will deliver a petition to DeLauro urging her to oppose cuts to Social Security.

\”It is absurd that Social Security cuts are being considered given how bloated the Pentagon budget is,\’\’ said Megan Iorio, who dropped off the petition started by New Haven resident Henry Lowendorf.

\”We expect Rep. DeLauro to listen to her constituents and pledge to vote against the President\’s proposed budget, which funds military waste at the expense of human needs—the exact opposite of what New Haven residents voted on in a referendum last November,\’\’ Iorio said in a press release announcing the protest.

Usually this problem is connected with one specific RSS reader or client. :”
