Action Alert: It's Time to Fight for Working Families

As petitions go, this one is pretty pretty plain vanilla, but in light of the indecision in Washington about the best way forward, it’s important that we make our voices heard.  This MoveOn poll does just that:

moveon-logo For the last year, Democrats in Washington have let lobbyists and corporate interests run roughshod over the peoples' business. Wall Street got bailouts. Bankers got bonuses. Big Insurance rewrote the health care bill. Meanwhile, ordinary Americans struggled to make ends meet.

But now thanks to the Massachusetts special election, Democrats finally know they need to change course. The question is, will they learn exactly the wrong lesson? Will they give up on change altogether?

We need to make sure Democrats don't get it wrong this time. It's time to demand that they start truly fighting for working families. Pass real health care reform. Reign in Wall street. Take on the banks and special interests that stand in the way of change.

A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to the White House and Democrats in Congress.

Done. And I am 'Recovering Republican' according to Lisa.

I think I was just ignorant and stupid. It looks like the current Dems have followed my lead. That isn't good.

Whatever your beliefs, ask whomever/whatever that the Dems decide to turn off Fox and lobbyists and listen.
