Help Ensure a Happy New Year for Working Families: Tell Congress to Act Now!

Post or find your local event happening in the coming weeks and for the Candlelight Campaign Against Cuts on December 10.

President Obama has sent a proposal to the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives that will help ensure that 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses won’t have to ring in the new year with a tax increase.

If Congress fails to act on this proposal, a typical middle class family of four will see a $2,000 tax increase.  Imagine having $2,000 less to spend in 2013!  Everything from buying groceries to paying your rent or mortgage will become more difficult to afford.  It’s the absolute last thing working families need or deserve.

It’s important that the voices of working families are heard in this debate.  President Obama is asking voters everywhere to contact their members of Congress and let them know how taking away $2,000 from your income will impact you and your family.  The Twitter hashtag, #My2K, has been created to make this conversation easy to join.

Please help ensure a happy new year for all of us by making your voices heard.  Go to Twitter today and send a tweet with #My2K attached to friends, family and members of Congress.
