Dear MoveOn member—please check out this important email from our partner, Van Jones.
Since the tea party took our economy hostage to protect tax breaks for the wealthiest among us, we've seen:
So, if you're sick and tired of Washington's games, you're not alone.But just getting angry isn't going to solve anything. What we need are solutions and action. What we need are Jobs, not Cuts—just like Americans want.3
And while Washington was negotiating a debt deal that sold out working people, 130,000 everyday Americans considered 25,000 solutions to create A Contract for the American Dream.
It's a Contract to create jobs, invest in America, and rebuild the American Dream for all. And as a first step, if we can get at least 100,000 citizen signers right away, Rebuild the Dream and MoveOn will join together to put the Contract in a full page ad in The New York Times, so America can see the solutions to our broken politics and struggling economy writ large.
Below are the main points of the Contract. Be among the first of many to sign it and get it in The New York Times this week.Clicking here will add your name.
A CONTRACT FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM
We'll be putting the principles of the Contract into action almost immediately. But the first thing we need to do is get Washington's attention with a full page ad in The New York Times backed by over 100,000 Americans.
Then we'll take it directly to members of Congress during the August recess, start fighting for it in our local communities, and make it part of our national vision.
Be part of this crucial beginning by signing the Contract for the American Dream today.
Thanks for all that you do,
–Van Jones and the rest of the Rebuild team
