Call House Leader DeLeo

The Mass Anti-Family Institute is telling it's minions to call Rep. Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop), the chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee, since the legislature is preparing to override Romney's veto for cuts affecting children in need. It was no surprise that the pro-violence Romney (for the death penalty, against programs to reduce violence and suicide in children) choose to cut money which would have helped gay and lesbian youth.

Mass Anti-Family is reporting:
The Article 8 Alliance has reported that an aide from Rep. DeLeo's office left the following voice mail at their office: "The gay and lesbian youth programs, the chair strongly supports, and as far as the public health funding, for the line items 4590 and 7010 -- both of those are obviously of great importance to him as well. So I think there's a good chance they will be taken up in an override ... The chair is very, very, very supportive of these programs and sees a great deal of importance in them. So you can rest assured on that."

I'm suggesting you call Rep. DeLeo and thank him for provided money to protect our state's most vital resource, its children. Tell him you applaud his efforts to protect ALL the families in the Commonwealth.

Rep. Robert DeLeo (617) 722-2990

After calling Rep. DeLeo, phone your own legislators as well and ask them to also vote to override Governor Romney's veto of these budget items when the budget comes before them. This is an extremely important issue because it is our children and their impressionable minds that are at stake.
