November 27, 2012: Conference Call Teach-Ins

We’ve got five weeks to get Congress to put regular people first for a change. Join us Tuesday for a telephone teach-in about the fiscal cliff, the statewide campaign to end the Bush tax cuts for the top 2%, and how you can get involved!

Two options:

11:00 am – Tuesday, November 27th – Click here to RSVP:

This year’s election was about demanding fairness and accountability from government.  We won’t sit still while Wall Street and the super-rich rig the system.

What happens next will test the power of our progressive movement. We won the election.

Now we’ll be fighting to:

* End the Bush Tax Cuts for the top 2% (stopping an average $130,000 tax cut for millionaires)

* Protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid from any cuts

* Create good-paying jobs to help rebuild our economy

For the next five weeks, we’ll need you to make phone calls to Congress, join us at events and rallies, write to your local newspapers and post to Facebook and Twitter.

It’s all hands on deck — for the next five weeks — to make sure we win the most important budget fight in decades.

After years of right-wing members of congress holding the interests of working families hostage, we now have the upper hand.

It’s up to us.

Please join us on Tuesday at either 11:00 am or 7:00 pm to get involved.
