DelBene can make a difference on the Ways and Means Committee | Letter

A representative who believes: “We need an economy that works for everyone,” is just what we need in these times (‘DelBene selected to serve on House Ways and Means Committee’ Jan. 5, 2017).

Congresswoman DelBene working on the Ways and Means Committee will make a difference. She works for tax fairness and defends safety net programs like SNAP (food stamps) to fight hunger and provide ladders out of poverty.

We can encourage her by letting her know we appreciate her work and ask her to keep fighting for “an economy that works for everyone.”
