Your calls are urgently needed.People opposed to President Obama’s approach have organized calls against it. This plan recognizes what economists have told the nation: providing direct help such as food stamps and jobless benefits to low-income people jumpstarts the economy because they spend the money quickly; state aid prevents more harm to the economy and to people; investments such as school repair and energy efficiency projects create jobs. Your Senators need to know you support this balanced approach.
If you don’t act now, the Obama economic recovery plan, which creates and saves millions of jobs, protects people from hardship, and invests in shared prosperity, could be derailed.
Please join a national call today, Feb. 2 at 4pm eastern time (3pm central, 2pm mountain, 1pm pacific).
Call your Senators!
The message to Senators:
Please vote for the economic recovery bill and oppose delaying tactics. Our state needs the jobs that will be saved; our people need its protections against hunger, sickness and unemployment. We need to rebuild our schools and roads. Please vote for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
