TIME Magazine Op-Ed from MA Congressman Joe Kennedy III and Peter Edelman re Trump Proposed Cuts to SNAP

 

TIME Op Ed: 

Here's a powerful new op-ed by our very own Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy III and Peter Edelman (former aide to Senator Robert F. Kennedy) in TIME that discusses what cuts to SNAP and other safety net programs would mean for our country. http://time.com/4838245/trump-health-care-congress-food-stamps/ 

HR 1276 Co-Sponsors:

Rep Kennedy is also a co-sponsor of HR1276, Close the Meal Gap, along with Representatives McGovern, Moulton and Clark! (Keep it up - we need ALL our Reps on this bill!)

Please share the TIME op-ed with your networks. Below are possible social media posts suggested by CBPP that can be used on Facebook and Twitter, but you can also revise as needed and also THANK Rep Kennedy for his commitment to ending hunger in Massachusetts and America. https://twitter.com/RepJoeKennedy or @RepJoeKennedy
