Tell the Senate: Restore Food Stamp Funding

We won our fight to have a vote on our amendment to restore the deep cuts to vital nutritional assistance in the food stamp program. Republican leaders tried to keep our amendment from seeing the light of day, but now we will have a vote to help the neediest among us, almost half of whom are children.

This will put the Senate on record as to where they stand and who they fight for, so people can be held accountable for their indifference to the challenges too many Americans are facing in this tough economy.

The vote could happen as soon as Tuesday. I need you to join me in demanding that the Senate pass my amendment. Families are counting on us.
