Dear MoveOn member,
The Obama administration made a public commitment to veto any extension the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2%.1 You and 250,000 fellow MoveOn members helped make that happen by signing our two petitions asking the president to make this commitment. Thank you.
This is a big victory, but it's only the beginning.
A huge fight will happen after the election over taxes and revenue. President Obama has taken away the Republican leverage on taxes by clearly saying he won't extend these tax cuts. But beyond taxes, there's a lot more at stake, like unemployment insurance benefits and defense spending.
We have to stay dedicated to encouraging the president and Democrats to make their positions clear, so they can negotiate with Republicans from a position of strength at the end of the year. So we'll run more campaigns between now and then to get them to commit to positions that benefit the 99%.
Thank you for all you've done thus far, and all you do going forward.
–Garlin, Tate, Elena, Ryan, and the rest of the team
