President Obama's Budget:
The Path to Rebuild and Renew America Now
Thursday, March 5, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. eastern time
(Once registered you will receive instructions on how to log in, and explanatory budget materials via email. To participate, you need to be at a computer.)
This webinar will show how the President's budget would invest in health care, renewable energy, education, and more, laying a new foundation for growth that benefits us all. The budget makes an important - make that historic - down payment on renewing opportunities for Americans to join the middle class and be protected from poverty. The webinar will describe the transformational choices in the budget - a long-term plan to pay for the investments we need by raising revenues from those who can afford to pay and by cutting waste in the military and elsewhere. And it will describe a new campaign to support the President's responsible budget priorities - a campaign that needs your help.
