Enemies of the stimulus package are outcalling the suppporters of economic recovery by enormous numbers. I hope that someone smart does an analysis about what that means regarding the power of talk radio vs. the internet, which is where I think the fault line lies.
In the meantime, call your Senators now - no matter which party they belong to - and tell them to support the stimulus package. From True Majority:
President Obama's "American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan" will create jobs by rebuilding our roads and bridges, repairing our schools, doubling our renewable energy capacity, and more. It's much of what we've been wanting for years - which is exactly why there is an organized conservative campaign to stop the economic stimulus.
The vote on this bill will come in the Senate as early as TODAY, Monday, Feburary 2nd.
Please, Call your Senators right NOW and ask them to support the economic recovery bill.
This is too important to let ideological political games get in the way. Independent economic experts have said the plan will create up to 4 million new jobs1 by investing in American roads, schools and renewable energy, and also make sure the hundreds of thousands of us losing our jobs will still be able to eat and pay the rent.
We've got to get this done.
Honestly, in the scheme of things and with so many people suffering because of this recession, getting this stimulus package passed is an easy lift. Go through your email lists - think of people to ask to make a call and follow-up with them. Consider this a warm-up for the coming health care battle, which will make this fight look like a poolside nap on a summer day.
