Help Save NASA: Call & Visit "Super Committee" Members of Congress

You can help save NASA. "Super Committee" lobbying calls and visits are needed to save the space program from crippling cuts. The 12 members can save our space program or kill it for a decade or more. Share this with friends and post it everywhere it will help--let's take action now

Cuts in the space program can set us back a decade or more, allowing other nations to out-compete us in high tech.

Senate Republicans: Pat Toomey (PA), Jon Kyl (AZ), Rob Portman (OH).
House Republicans: Jeb Hensarling (TX) Dave Camp (MI), Fred Upton (MI).
Senate Democrats: Max Baucus (MT), John Kerry (MA), Patty Murray (WA).
 
House Democrats: Chris Van Hollen (MD), Xavier Becerra (CA), and James Clyburn (SC).

Call any member of the House or Senate via the Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121.

The committee must agree by Nov. 23 on $1.2 trillion in deficit reductions, and to pass the bill by Dec. 23. If they don't, automatic spending cuts of $1.5 trillion will occur, divided equally between domestic and defense spending. Most or all cuts will come from non-entitlements, meaning space could be hard hit unless we convince them it is a national priority. 


See other postings here for additional information useful for lobbying calls and visits.

Share this with your friends and anyone who will help too! Let's roll!
