Tell The Republicans: Stop Sabotaging The Economy

Tell The Republicans: Stop Sabotaging The Economy

While the jobs crisis persists, Republicans are threatening to take away the few wisps of stimulus we have left: the payroll tax cut for middle class workers, and long-term unemployment benefits. Even more ludicrous, while Republicans are arguing against extending the payroll tax cut that provides at least some cushion to the strapped middle class, they are continuing to demand more tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Stop this insanity. Sign the petition below to tell the Republican leadership: stop sabotaging the economy.

Petition Text:

We the undersigned urge Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to quit trying to sabotage the economy, and support the extension of the temporary payroll tax cut and long-term unemployment insurance without spending cuts that would negate the stimulative effects. This is the bare minimum Congress can do to keep the economy from sinking into a double-dip recession. Already, you have sought to sabotage the economy for political reasons, by blocking the American Jobs Act and cutting critical public investments. It is long past time to put politics aside and put jobs first.
