Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States
Goal: Save Meals on Wheels program funding from being eliminated.
Yet another vital program geared towards the needy could be destroyed by Trump: Meals on Wheels. The organization has been in service since the 1950s, delivering meals to the elderly, the disabled, and the poor, and is one of America’s finest programs. Trump, however, wishes to make such severe budget cuts that the program would be killed by 2018, once again proving he does not care about the well-being of everyday people.
We cannot allow this vital program to be destroyed in any way. Too many people rely on the assistance, and they have just as much of a right to good food and a chance to live long and happy lives as anyone else. Sign this petition to protect Meals on Wheels from these unnecessary budget cuts.
Dear Mr. President,
Your proposed budget cuts that would eliminate or severely damage funding for Meals on Wheels are completely unacceptable. Over two million sick and elderly people rely on this program, and gutting its funding would leave too many of them without proper care.
Your administration is proving time and time again just how little it cares for the well-being of the American people. You are taking money away from vital programs and organizations that benefit everyday working-class citizens and the environment, just so you can spend it on what you personally feel is more important. That is not how being president works; the job of the president and his administration is to keep the country running smoothly and to care about its people.
Once again, you are not “making America great” with your increasingly poor choices. You are letting down those who voted for you because they believed you would save them, and that is one of the worst things a president can do. Please rescind the proposed budget cuts right now and leave Meals on Wheels as it is.
[Your Name Here]
