Did you know that Obama's deal with Republicans not only cuts taxes for the rich, but INCREASES taxes on the working poor?
More importantly, does your Congressman know? Will Brad Miller, G.K. Butterfield, or Mel Watt vote for this disgusting deal? David Price signed a letter opposing it, but what will he do when the vote actually comes?
Phone numbers for these Democrats are at the bottom of their web pages.
The fix is already in for the US Senate to approve this travesty. Tell your Congressman that this deal should not be brought up for a vote. Just do nothing and the working poor will be better off than under this Obama-McConnell plan.
(It's hard for me to believe I had to type that -- Obama's plan will actually hurt the working poor).
If the Obama plan comes up for a vote, tell your Congressman to vote against it.
Remind the your Congressman that they've already sent many of these proposals over to the Senate. The Senate just needed to act on them.
At this point, doing nothing is better for the poor than passing this deal.
