American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on January 30, 2009

From the AFSCME e-Action Newsletter:

Right now Congress is deciding on nothing less than our jobs.

This week, the House of Representatives voted in favor of $300 billion in aid to state and local governments for Medicaid, education, law enforcement, transportation, unemployment insurance operations and other vital public services. This is a major step forward. Now the bill goes to the Senate—where it faces stiff opposition.

We need you to contact Senators Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl today by clicking here.
This bill, President Obama’s “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009″ is about creating jobs, supporting public services and jobs and getting our economy back on track for working families.

President Obama has called for unity and an end to partisanship. Unfortunately, not a single Republican member voted for the House bill. That’s why it’s imperative that you contact your senators and urge them to vote YES for the Senate bill. We need Republican and Democratic support together to get it passed.

The Senate will start voting on the bill next week. A brief message from you to your senators can make a difference.

Please act now.

In solidarity,
