Last night, President Obama delivered a powerful and poignant State of the Union speech. The President's vision of an America where "everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules" is one that ADA's Working Families Win campaign supports wholeheartedly. Now we need your help to ensure this vision becomes a reality!
The President's proposed progressive changes will revive our economy and create increased opportunity for working families across the country. These changes need to happen NOW! In order to secure our future, we must:
♦ End the Bush Tax Cuts;
♦ Ensure the 1% pays at least a 30% tax rate;
♦ Tighten regulations of abusive lending practices;
♦ Increase investment in infrastructure and education; and
♦ End tax incentives for companies that outsource jobs.
BUT no sooner than the President ended his speech, conservative extremists in Congress derided the President's proposals as "political gimmicks." Needless to say, the far-right majority will stop at nothing to ensure that a progressive vision does not become a reality. ADA's Working Families Win campaign knows that the public will is there to make significant policy and political progress.
Working Families Win organizers and volunteers will be talking to their neighbors and taking to the streets to secure representation that will win the future for working families. Your contribution today will help us begin putting organizers on the ground in key communities. Please donate now!
Thank you for your continued support!
