Dear MoveOn member,
The President has drawn a line in the sand with two exciting new proposals to create jobs and make the super-rich pay their taxes—similar to what the Contract for the American Dream calls for.1
Now, our response to this moment is critical. The push-back against these proposals will be intense—from Republicans and some Democrats.
That's why the American Dream movement is meeting this weekend to craft hundreds of local strategies and plans to get politicians to create millions of new jobs by making the Warren Buffets of this world pay their fair share.
These gatherings are a continuation of what we started this summer when over 500,000 people joined forces to create the Contract for the American Dream. Instead of talking about our ideas to rebuild our economy, this weekend we're making plans to transform the ideas in the Contract into winning campaigns that will make a concrete impact for millions of people without jobs.
Can you attend a Rebuild the Dream House Party on Saturday in Brooklyn?
Yes, I can attend!
The Rebuild the Dream parties are well-timed: Members of Congress are coming back home for a weeklong recess right after our gatherings. At the parties, we'll strategize and make an action plan to make members of Congress support the President's call to increase taxes on the rich and big corporations to create jobs for the jobless. So the more people partying, the better our local plans will be!
Can you join other MoveOn members in Brooklyn on Saturday to create your community's plan to build the American Dream movement?
In August, the American Dream movement helped shift the focus to jobs not cuts by turning out en masse at town halls to tell Congress we want Jobs Not Cuts. We need to build on our success and push Republicans—and any Democrats who need it—to work with the President to address the jobs crisis. Let's keep our momentum going.
Thanks for all you do.
