Fed Up with MBTA Budget & Service Cuts? There Is an Alternative!

March 20, 2015 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am

Over the years, Congress has cut funds for MBTA operations and upkeep—and it shows. Next week, Congress is poised to cut even more.

The People’s Budget would increase funds to fix the MBTA and make the trains run on time!  It would also invest in jobs, housing, and education, increase funds for Social Security and healthcare, and redirect Pentagon spending to domestic needs. Congress will vote on the People’s Budget as soon as next week.
