With 10 working days until the House recess for the summer and 15 days in the Senate, we need every 99er, their friends, family, twitter pals, Facebook friends and anybody else you can enlist to help our cause, to contact Washington now. We need to contact the people below several times per day and let them know they must not go home on another vacation without first passing a Tier 5 for all states, preferably 20 weeks.
When you call, be firm but respectful. We want their help. We can get this done, but we must do it right.
As I said in my article: Why does Mel Gibson get Ten times more media attention than millions of hurting 99ers?
When you contact these Congressional leaders, do not let them get away with that tired old argument “well Washington just doesn’t move fast enough to help the 99ers before our summer break”. That as we know is total BS.
Should anyone say that to you, just remind them that it took less that 3 days to help Haiti, Greece and the Banks too. Also be sure to mention: It would be great to see help for the hungry, hurting humans in THIS country in less than 3 days like it took Congress to approve aid to Haiti earlier this year.
Fact is that we are down to the wire on this issue and their reelections in November are what is at stake. There are plenty of Primary challenges left in August to unseat a current Democrat in favor of another and anyone willing to vote for the ‘Party of No’ these days is just plain psychotic and not a good American, period.
These elected officials are our target focus:
