"We Are Who We Are"

I was once asked "Why don't you change the name of your organization??" My reply "Compare us to the duck billed platypus. One of our Higher Powers strange creatures. But like any created "strange creature" they should be treated with dignity and respect." Yes our organization was created by Foster Caregivers, who were Falsely Accused... But over the years we have shared similar stories of Natural Parents, Grand Parents, Relatives..etc.

We have come to recognize that the True Enemy, in so many cases, is the Agency itself (Known as Goliath by some). We believe that the True answers for reform are those who are closest to the children, and not the Agency, who feel they are the experts... Keeping in mind that the "Only Leaders" are those who have become Advocates for Themselves to Protect Their Family...

May you find Strength in Your Higher Power,

Death of Medicare??? -- Check it Out

Tuesday, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (WI-01) announced the Republican’s budget proposal.  It is unbelievably bad - literally.  The GOP budget not only repeals the new health care law it eliminates Medicare and Medicaid as we know it.1

Fight for these life saving programs today.  Call you Member of Congress and tell them to vote NO on the Republican’s extremist budget.

The Republican’s proposal gives millionaires huge tax breaks while seniors and hard-working families pay more for health care and get less coverage.  Ryan’s plan would radically undermine the economic security of America’s middle class.  It helps Wall Street-run health insurance companies make record-breaking profits and pay their CEOs outrageous sums to deny people the care they paid for and need.2

Nowhere in the Republican plan is there any shared sacrifice. There’s no fairness. The big corporations and super-rich aren’t asked to pitch in. Instead they get even richer. This budget changes the rules and reshapes this country in a breathtakingly dangerous way.

This budget would eviscerated programs that everyone in this country depend on.  Republicans are attacking every single one of us.3 

The GOP’s budget breaks America's most basic promise: That if you work hard and play by the rules, you can take care of your family and retire with peace of mind.4 Call Congress today.

In Solidarity,
Melinda Gibson

Fixing the PATRIOT Act

Nearly 3,000 Demand Progress members will call the White House today to demand that President Obama keep his campaign pledges and fix the PATRIOT Act.  We'll be joined by thousands more from groups like the ACLU, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, and others.
Our work is incredibly urgent:  The PATRIOT Act is back up for renewal this month, and we need Obama on our side.
Can you join us?
Demand Progress is only a few months old, but we're at the forefront of the effort to fix the PATRIOT Act.  More than 70,000 Demand Progress members contacted their elected officials in support of PATRIOT Act reform in January -- more than any other group that's working on the issue this year.  We aired an ad on cable news in metro-Washington, DC.  Then our allies in Congress stood up and blocked a lengthy renewal.

Now, as Congress considers real reforms to the PATRIOT Act, we're partnering with groups like the ACLU, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Electronic Frontier Foundation, and others, to make sure Americans' voices are heard.

Can you call the White House today?
Thanks so much for your help.  We're working hard every day to protect Americans' civil liberties -- but we're entirely membership-funded and need your support to keep up our efforts.
