Tell Senator Manchin: America Wants to Work!

Tell him to put Americans back to work by supporting the American Jobs Act. Here's why:

  • it will create nearly 2 million jobs and prevent 280,000 teachers from losing their jobs. (Moody’s Analytics, 9/9/11; Executive Offi ce of the President, 10/4/11)

  • it makes immediate investments in rebuilding and upgrading America’s highways, transit, rail, airports, bridges, ports, schools and communications and energy infrastructure. (The Center for American Progress, 9/22/11)

  • it prevents 5 million Americans from losing their unemployment benefits. (The White House, 9/9/11)

  • to make sure the wealthy contribute their fair share to fixing our economy, the American Jobs Act is paid for by a 5.6 percent surtax on millionaires. (S. 1660, introduced 10/5/11)

America faces a jobs crisis, the worst we’ve seen in generations. Unfortunately, some politicians in Washington would rather let millions of Americans go without jobs than to vote for President Obama’s American Jobs Act.

Senator Manchin will be voting on the American Jobs Act in the coming days. With millions of Americans unemployed or underemployed, it’s critical that our elected officials stop playing partisan games and pass this bill.

Tell Senator Manchin to put America back to work by supporting the American Jobs Act.
