President Obama Asks Not
I guess I am supposed to alert my family and friends to the recession and further economic catastrophe, but honestly — couldn’t you have used your powerful email list for something other than a request to hold Economic Recovery Bill House Parties this weekend? Wouldn’t you like to ask us to call our representatives in Congress?
Quite frankly, my family and friends are well aware of the recession and we are waiting for Congress to come to their senses and do something to help average Americans instead of the rich and the corporations. We’d like to see some JOBS instead of simply more tax breaks at the expense of aid to the states to continue needed services to our neighbors.
There are thirteen million Americans on your email list, right? Don’t you think it’s time to ask us to DO something? Something that might actually help get a good bill passed in Congress?
Isn’t it ask-what-you-can-do-for-your-country time?
