AFSC has joined 93 other national organizations in calling on Congress to emphasize jobs and social programs in its budget considerations. The diverse group -- including the AFL-CIO, NAACP and USAction -- sent this November 5, 2013 letter urging members of Congress to --
- End job-killing sequestration cuts;
- Protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security from Benefit Cuts;
- Defend core programs for those most at risk; and
- Eliminate all tax incentives for sending jobs overseas and instead create jobs at home.
