This week, thousands of Americans picked up the phone to help the President prevent a tax hike on middle-class families.
We can't stop now. Republican leadership in the House of Representatives is still refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would prevent 98 percent of American families from paying higher taxes next year.
If your taxes go up by more than $2,000 in a couple weeks, there's only one reason: because a few dozen Republican representatives refuse to ask the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans to pay their fair share.
You can do something about it. Log on to the call tool today and ask fellow supporters who live in Republican districts to call their representatives now:
Voters have already made their voices heard on this issue. As the President said at his first press conference after the election:
"If there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and Mr. Romney, it was, when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, I argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest Americans pay a little bit more.Yet a handful of Republicans in the House of Representatives are still fighting for the same top-down approach that's been tried -- and has failed.
Whether you voted for the President or not, he's fighting to keep taxes low for 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses, because he believes we need to grow the economy from the middle out.
He's fighting for you. He's got your back.
We've got to get his, too. Make a few calls right now. One person reaching out to another is how we re-elected Barack Obama. It's how we'll win this fight, too. Just a few minutes of your time will make a difference.
Thanks for doing your part. More soon.
Obama for America
P.S. -- If you want to make your voice in Congress heard, too, look up your representative here then call the switchboard at 202-224-3121.
