Last week, we asked you to tell the President and Congress to create jobs now. We've been overwhelmed by your response. Your energy inspires us.
But we'll need more voices to really be heard. If you haven't done so already, please tell the President and Congress to make jobs their top priority.
Right now, Washington doesn't seem to be listening. On one hand, the President is proposing even deeper cuts than those required by his "Satan Sandwich" budget deal. He plans to announce a "jobs" plan that few expect would create many jobs, but which might cost us jobs through corporate-oriented trade agreements.
On the other hand, the Republicans want to further punish working people by raising payroll taxes.
Most of our representatives have been tone deaf to the rising poverty rates in our country. But with your help, we can make them focus on creating jobs.
Tell the President and Congress to create jobs now. And please forward this email to everyone you can.
