A Progressive Economy

Democratic leaders will be meeting with President Bush this week to negotiate an emergency economic stimulus package, and they're under pressure to accept the president's priorities.

Bush's proposal gives little or no help to people who make less than $40,000 a year, but those are the very folks who need help most--and who would be most likely to spend a little extra cash in their pockets to get the economy moving again.

This is a moment we could think big. We could spend on public infrastructure to create new jobs, or invest in new technology to make us more competitive and less dependent on oil in the long term. Or we could give even more Bush tax breaks to the people who need it the least.

Can you sign this petition and tell your representative to demand a progressive economic package?

A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your senators and representative.
