Thank Congress for Passing the Budget!
Good news - On Obama’s 100th day in office, the House and Senate passed the final budget resolution for 2010. The resolution lays the strong foundation needed to rebuild our future and supports the goals laid out by President Obama’s budget: providing quality health care for all Americans, investing in clean energy and making education more affordable and accessible.
This budget resolution preserves the President’s priorities to ensure a sound and swift economic recovery – while still cutting the deficit substantially. It also includes reconciliation instructions that will protect health care reform and education from a minority block in the Senate.
We are extremely pleased that Congress listened to the demands of millions of young people across the country and took this much-needed step to make dramatic investments in our future. Send a thank you to Congress and a reminder of why they are there to protect and invest in our future.
