Republican budget cuts will make the country LESS SAFE

What will the Republican/Tea Party budget cuts do to our country if they are passed.  Our country will become much LESS SAFE.  This from the Center for American Progress:

Our streets will be less safe. Efforts to insure safety on our ports, highways, railroads, and commercial airlines will be reduced. The prospect of developing more effective treatments for cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and other dread diseases will be diminished.

They add:

There are numerous other examples of how this package would impact the safety and security of nearly all of us:
  • There would be less money to identify and improve hazardous bridges, intersections, and roadways.
  • More than 300 new biomedical research grants would go unfunded.
  • Support for state public health programs aimed at the early identification and response to epidemic diseases would be slashed.
  • Emergency rooms across the country will be burdened by the inflow of patients from the community hospitals that will be closed.

Is this what Americans want?  I think not.  We need to STOP the Republicans and Tea Party nuts NOW before they do real damage.  Write the Republicans in Congress.  Tell them to STOP this war on America NOW!
