Original message Do not rest this weekend.
If we want to stop this pathetic excuse for a deal on the tax cuts, we cannot rest this weekend. I know many of you put forth great amounts of effort and work on this,contacting the White House, and more importantly contacting your Congresspeople.
But we can't afford to let up now. As the great Bernie Sanders mentioned yesterday, we can change this, we just have to show our leaders in Congress how important it is to us to get a better deal.
If you have contacted your reps, great, contact them again. If you haven't, now is the time. And once you are done contacting them once, do it again. Make your voice heard. Get ahold of friends, family, get them to start burning up the wires to Washington. Write LTTE's, if you are fortunate to live in a city where your Congressperson has an office, pay a personal visit to register your displeasure with Obama's deal.
We have justice, morality, and momentum on our side. Obama and his Republican cronies thought that they could stun the left and slide this through. The House is holding strong for a better deal though, and the Senate is in flux. But it up to us to have our leaders' backs on this.
Therefore just because it is the weekend doesn't mean we can take a break. Flood DC with messages and make it perfectly clear that we want a better deal, a much better deal.
This is how democracy works, so let's work the system. Thanks.
