Last night, President Obama announced that he's giving in to the GOP and extending the Bush tax breaks for the rich.
The "deal" President Obama is proposing is an "absolute disaster," as Senator Bernie Sanders said. So Sen. Sanders said last night he would "do whatever I can to see that 60 votes are not acquired to pass this piece of legislation."
But Sen. Sanders can't do it alone. So we're urging other leading progressives in the Senate to stand with him to block any extension of the millionaire bailout.
Can you sign the petition to leading progressive senators today?
A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to Sens. Feingold, Franken, Brown (OH), Boxer, Merkley, Whitehouse, Durbin, Harkin, and Schumer.
Full petition text:
"Sens. Feingold, Franken, Brown, Boxer, Merkley, Whitehouse, Durbin, Harkin, and Schumer: You are our progressive heroes and we need you now. Please join Sen. Bernie Sanders and do everything you can to block the 'deal' to extend the Bush tax bailout for millionaires."
We've reached 77% of our 2nd NEW goal of 200,000 signers! (154,633)
