Congress is about to make a choice that will define this moment in history:
Support those unemployed by this recession, or give tax cuts to millionaires.
Your Senators need to hear from you today!
Please call right now. Tell them you're a constituent. Tell them that they should vote to continue unemployment insurance to the end of 2011, AND that if they are serious about reducing the deficit they will NOT extend the Bush tax cuts for millionaires.
We don’t have a choice – if Congress fails to continue the unemployment programs, 2 million
people in December alone will be left with no income. In the next five months it will be almost 6 million people. Local economies will be devastated if the unemployed have no income to spend in local stores, which could result in over 700,000 MORE people losing their jobs!
We can either support hard-working Americans who are out of a job through no fault of their own, or support millionaires who are doing just fine on their own.
