    1. Petition by

      A F

      Glen Carbon, IL

[This petition is specifically for citizens in the State of Illinois.] 

Our elected officials need to Stop Taking Our Programs, specifically human service programs.  These programs are critical to the health, safety and welfare of inviduals and local communities will bare the financial burden of care should proposed budget cuts occur.

The Executive and Legislative branches of government should work in partnership with one another.  A cooperative spirit is sorely needed for measures that will sustain human lives.  The most creative and effective solutions often arise from desperate need, but elected officials must first have an unyielding hope and an unrelenting determination to do better than what is thought possible.  To lessen the magnitude of human tragedy, both branches of government must resolve to work in tandem with one another.

Sign the petition, make some phone calls and write some letters urging the Governor, Senators and Representatives to Stop Taking Our Programs!  They belong to the citizens of Illinois and should be preserved at all costs.

      I urge you to fund IL Cares Rx for low-income seniors, home-delivered meals, and other home and community-based services that enable at-risk seniors to continue living in the community rather than the less desirable and more expensive nursing home setting.

      As an Ombudsman in long-term care and the President of my home owner's association of over 400 citizens, I see the hurts of the residents first hand. These funds were allocated because of a real need. It is more prudent to employ more oversight to ensure funds are producing required results than to cut them altogether. "More production, less reduction."

      I believe we need to be fiscally responsible as a state. This is why I support Govt. financial support for these types of programs, because in the long run, they save the state money and help people give back to the state financially in taxes and also in productivity.

      Lets make the cuts we need to make to balance the budget, but not on the backs of the most vulnerable amongst us.

      No one knows when they may become disabled. They may not be able to work anymore and need caretakers to help keep them alive and maintaining their quality of life. Let's work together as a state to keep these social service programs funded and caretakers available to help keep people alive. This benefits everyone in our state. No family remains untouched..

      Human Services are a very important part of being an American. We are a country that helps its people. When programs are looked at to be slashed, legislators would rather cut budgets so that one hundred people at 30,000 a year lose jobs instead of one at 300,000 a year. Please help the people of the United States. We are necessary services.
