Please Call Your Senators Right Now: 1‑888‑665‑9823

We’ve just learned that the Senate will vote today on the American Jobs Act. This bill would put hundreds of thousands of people back to work immediately rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure and keep 300,000 teachers, police officers and other first responders on the job. The bill would also extend unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed for an additional year. The bill pays for these job-creating measures by instituting a 5.6% surtax on annual household incomes above $1 million. President Obama has noted that the American Jobs Act would be “fully paid for, asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share.”

Please call right now and tell your Senators to vote yes to get this jobs bill moving! 1‑888‑665‑9823
