Are you using your Facebook and Twitter accounts to get the word out and encourage legislators to LET CALIFORNIA VOTE on the revenues we need to prevent another $9 billion in cuts to schools, health care and human services?
If you’re on Twitter, please start using the #LetCAVote hashtag to encourage legislators to let California vote!
We need to use social media to GET THE WORD OUT and let ALL LEGISLATORS know that we’re counting on them to stand up for democracy and let the people of California vote on Governor Brown’s modest and common-sense budget proposal!
Specifically, Californians need a chance to consider and VOTE on the Governor’s proposed extension of TAXES WE ARE ALREADY PAYING to prevent another $9 billion in cuts.
Without these revenues, Californians will be subjected to even more dangerous and potentially life-threatening cuts to essential health care and social services.
That’s why we need your help!
Spread the word amongst your followers and the broader Twitter universe by disseminating messages with the #LetCAVote hashtag encouraging legislators to let California vote. To help you get the conversation started, here’s a few sample Tweets:
Stand up for Democracy and #LetCAVote on #JerryBrown #cabudget revenue proposals.
Be a champion – #LetCAVote on the Governor’s modest #cabudget revenue package and help prevent more dangerous cuts.
With so much at stake – Californians deserve the chance to vote for the #JerryBrown #cabudgetrevenues. Don’t stand in the way of democracy! #LetCAVote
CA is already suffering $12 billion in cuts – Why not #LetCAVote on #JerryBrown #cabudget rev. package to prevent even more brutal cuts??
If opponents think voters will reject these #cabudget revenue proposals, then what harm could come by putting them to a vote? #LetCAVote
