Health Beats Needs Your Help!

This week Health Beats needs your help!
House to Vote on $1.3 BILLION in CUTS to the Health Centers Program TOMORROW!
CALL YOUR Representative TODAY!
The House is currently debating the FY2011 Continuing Resolution (HR 1) that includes $1.3 BILLION in cuts to Health Center funding and is scheduled to vote on this bill TOMORROW. We know that you are aware of the impact these cuts will have (if not, check the bottom of this email) and this is the last chance you will have to weigh in on this bill in the House.
As this bill comes to a vote we need you to CALL your Representative one more time and ask them to:
1) Go to the floor and talk about their support for health centers
2) To continue to oppose Health Center funding cuts and Vote AGAINST the Continuing Resolution
You can call your Representative directly by dialing the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 1-202-224-3121.
While this bill is being debated the BEST way to demonstrate the broad support for Health Centers is for as many Representatives as possible to speak about the value and importance of Health Centers from the House floor. So far only a very few Representatives have mentioned Health Centers in their statements so we need you to urge YOUR Representative to talk about why cutting health Center funding is the wrong thing to do for their constituents and for the country!
