Tell Congress to End the Sequester Now!

Apparently, Congress can act quickly when it wants to.

After hearing complaints of long lines at the airports, Congress gave the Federal Aviation Administration a way around the sequester. These senseless, across-the-board federal budget cuts were supposed to affect everyone, but air traffic controllers got a pass.

Meanwhile, we’re starting to learn about the enormity of cuts in services for vulnerable older adults, including:

  • $48 million from senior nutrition programs
  • $19 million from supportive services like personal care, adult day care, transportation, and resources for senior centers


Thousands of seniors who are struggling every day just to make ends meet are finding they no longer have access to critical services like meals, transportation, energy assistance, and affordable housing.

Use the form below to tell Congress that these cuts are harming more than just air travelers. Urge them to end the sequester now—for everyone!


Make your letter more effective by personalizing it with a story of real seniors in your community. Thanks for your support!

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a constituent committed to the vulnerable seniors in our community, I'm writing to urge you to end the senseless, drastic budget cuts under the sequester.

I urge you to work with your colleagues to end the sequester and stop the cuts that harm the most vulnerable Americans.

Sincerely,
