Your voices carried the day to stop the Patriot Act. Your voices carried the
day in stopping destruction of the ANWR. And your voices have one last chance
to stop the cruelty budget if you speak out now.


Today in the Senate, Dick "The Grinch" Cheney flew in just long enough to break
a 50-50 tie, further gutting lifeline services for the poor while they plough
full steam ahead with abolishing all tax responsibility for the wealthy. This
is a battle that should have been won in the House already, but for 6 Democrats
who didn't even bother to show up for the vote. Because there were some minor
concessions made in the Senate, we have one final chance to reverse this
heartless budget if you call your House member at 888-355-3588 or 888-818-6641
and submit the action page at

Remember that all members of the House must face reelection next year. In this
season when some are complaining about a war to take Christ out of Christmas, we
ask again, "Who would Jesus starve?" Consider these words:

"I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick,
and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying,
Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or
sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them,
saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of
these, ye did it not to me." (Matthew 25:43-45)

And yet here we have a bill which will take AWAY food from the hungry, rob
medicine from the sick, and steal clothing intended for those who are already
naked. What should be the judgement for those who do such things? Perhaps you
already know the next verse. Words of true compassion can be found in all
faiths. Make the call and send a message to Congress and tell them to show some
compassion for a change.
