Lifesaving Foreign Assistance is #WorthThePenny
Description: The President has proposed a budget to slash lifesaving U.S. foreign assistance. This funding has long been a key pillar in our nation's leadership role in saving lives and bringing about a safer, more prosperous and more equitable world. Slashing these programs – which make up just one percent of the U.S. federal budget, or one penny on the dollar – wouldn’t balance the budget or pay for significant new domestic spending. But it would have a disastrous impact on the lives of millions of women, girls and families worldwide. It's not too late to reverse course. This proposal does not have to become law. Only Congress has the power to protect these lifesaving programs. But they won't act unless they hear from you. Tell Congress today: Foreign assistance is #WorthThePenny. Don't put this lifesaving aid on the chopping block. Go to http://www.care.org to sign the petition.
