It contains a link to this.............
“I want to bring the voices of the American people into a budget process and conversation that is too often limited to bureaucrats and politicians.” –Chairman Patty MurrayRec. this up because this is way too good an opportunity for dailykos to miss, and then go tell them what you think!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome to MyBudget, an online platform for members of the public to weigh in as our nation works to tackle our budget and economic challenges.
I feel very strongly that politicians and bureaucrats shouldn’t be making our budget decisions in a vacuum, but that the ideas, stories, values, and priorities of families across the country have a loud voice at the table and a platform to be heard.
So please, use the forms below to tell us what you think. Share your stories about how federal budget decisions have impacted your family, your community, and your job. Let us know what issues we should be focused on. And pass along your ideas for how we can tackle our budget challenges responsibly.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Senator Patty Murray, Chairman
