Push Pryor on URGENT jobs bill

This came in today’s email.

1.9 million new jobs are on the line today, which is why we need you to get on the line to Senator Mark Pryor right now.

President Obama’s jobs bill is coming to a vote in the Senate late today. Independent experts say it would add 1.9 million jobs and reduce unemployment by 1%.1 That’s jobs for teachers, construction workers, veterans, and more. And it’s paid for by asking the richest of the richest 1% to pay a bit more in taxes—an idea that 75% of Americans support.2

This is what we’ve been asking for through petitions, calls, and voices on the streets. This is what the American Dream Movement called for in the Contract for the American Dream, signed by over 300,000 Americans. The president has put forth this important first step to rebuilding the American Dream. Now it’s essential that the entire Senate Democratic Caucus stands behind it.

And if Republicans block it, then Senate Democrats need to keep putting up legislation to create jobs again and again until we get a real answer for the 14 million out-of-work Americans.3

So call Senator Mark Pryor right now. Tell him: “Vote for the president’s American Jobs Act and keep fighting to create jobs for Americans.”
