In the coming weeks, Congress will be making decisions that will have long-term effects on our economy here in Colorado. If our elected representatives act responsibly, they have an opportunity to shrink the economic inequality gap and protect the vital services working families depend on for years to come. We need to make sure they do just that.
Fill in you information to co-sign the following letter.
We will be hand delivering the signatures to Congress and our Congressman, Mike Coffman, later this month.
In the November election, Americans delivered a mandate: Fix the economy by strengthening the middle class and working families. Our country has come a long way since the worst of the recession, but far too many families are still struggling to make it.
As you consider urgent budget decisions over the next seven weeks, our highest priority is job creation and economic growth, and not devastating cuts that will cripple our recovery. The best way to reduce the deficit is to put people back to work and accelerate our recovery.
When you consider these proposals, we want you to:
- Create jobs and grow the economy. The best way to reduce the deficit is by investing in good jobs and keeping the economic recovery going.
- Protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Any deal must protect the millions of Americans who depend on these core programs and maintain our nation’s safety net.
- Let the Bush tax cuts for the top 2% expire and require corporations to pay their fair share. The middle class tax cuts should be extended immediately.
- Protect vital public services like child care, Head Start, and special education.
