If you are wondering why all these bills are going through. These folks are making a massive number of phone calls as this bill benefits them. If you want this stopped, we will have to do the same thing. Here is the notice to SEIU folks.......................
Last week we asked you to write your senators and tell them to support the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act, a strong jobs bill our economy needs.
Your response was overwhelming and the Senate is now on track to vote on this legislation shortly.
Tomorrow the Senate will hold a key procedural vote to determine if the jobs bill will get the straight up-or-down vote it deserves.
Will you call your senators and ask them to support an up-or-down vote?
The American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act is a firewall for our economy. Passing it will ensure that jobs will be created and key services won't be cut.
It's not clear to those in the halls of power how this economic crisis is hitting working families. But every day in our communities we see the cost of inaction, as does the nurse struggling to pay her mortgage and the security officer whose son can't afford college are living in the real world - states cutting back vital services, more of their neighbors losing their jobs.
We need you to speak up to make sure that the Senate gets the message. They must pass a strong jobs bill - the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act - or more services will be cut and more jobs will be lost.

Let's make sure that the Senate hears our voice loud and clear: our economy can't afford anything less than an up-or-down vote on job creating legislation.
Thank you for all you do.
