Tell Your Senator and Representative: Focus on Jobs, Not Cuts

You can use the following script for guidance, but tell your own story about why it's important that Congress protects Medicare, Medicaid and education.

Hello, my name is ________ and I am from ________.

I would like to let (Sen. ________ or Congresswoman/Congressman _______) know that we need champions who will fight for a vibrant middle class. The President’s call to extend tax cuts to the middle class right now is absolutely the right approach to keep our economy moving. Congress must make sure taxes don’t go up on the 98% of Americans making under $250,000 a year. We need Congress to pass middle-class tax cuts for 98% of all Americans, now!

In addition, I have serious concerns about any Grand Bargain and strongly believe that any tax-and-budget deal reached must: create jobs and grow the economy; protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, let the Bush tax cuts for the top 2%–those making more than $250,000–expire and end the coming cuts which will threaten vital public services like child care, Head Start and special education.

Thank you for your time and for representing my concerns.
