November 8, 2012Dear Representative,As you work on finalizing the FY13 appropriations bills, we write to strongly urge you tosupport the Senate's fiscal year 2013 overall funding level for the International Affairs Budgetin order to protect its poverty-focused accounts.The Senate's funding levels for the International Affairs Budget, forged under the bipartisanleadership of Senators Patrick Leahy and Lindsey Graham, recognizes current fiscallimitations by making smart investments in effective programs that work to save lives,increase our national security, and spur economic development both at home and aroundthe world.Additionally, the effects of sequestration or significantly reduced funding levels will put theworld's poorest at further risk, put the U.S. on the sidelines in influencing rapidlytransforming regions of the world, and signal a decline of U.S. leadership in promoting amore stable and prosperous world.Deficit reduction negotiations provide an opportunity for you to ensure that U.S. leadershipremains strong: We cannot betray our nation's longstanding moral leadership by scaling backhumanitarian assistance as food crises endanger millions of lives. We cannot afford to curtailcritical programs that expand markets for U.S. products and help create American jobs. Wecannot turn our backs on the millions of people seeking to democratically choose their ownleaders and government institutions. And we must listen to our military leaders who supportdevelopment assistance programs as a way of helping to avoid future conflicts.Thank you for your consideration.
