It is time to support the President in his battles for social justice and his efforts to help the middle class. We need to contact our senators and representatives and call for a vote. The president needs our help!
We need an immigration policy that will get eleven million people paying taxes to the United States and get them contributing to our society. President Bush and President Obama agree on this issue. Let's get it passed!
It is time for sensible gun laws. There are several issues that need to be voted on as soon as possible. Congress is having an undeserved ten day vacation. We need to tell them we want a vote on the gun issues!
The president has a reasonable plan to get America back to work by increasing manufacturing jobs and repairing infrastructure. Tell Congress we want action!
Nine dollars is a reasonable minimum wage. It would put the income for a 40-hour week over the poverty line. It would encourage people to choose work rather than handouts. It would give people hope for a better life.
The president needs our help! Take the time to send the e-mails and make the calls to our senators and representatives. Perhaps you could talk to them in person at their local offices. Tell then we want votes on these issues. Remember the opposition may be very loud but there are more of us. We are the majority and we need to make our voices heard!
