Fix the Debt is working hard to ensure a “Grand Bargain” and our Senator Schumer says there is still a chance for a grand bargain.
Now is the time to stiffen the spines of the Progressive Democrats and not let the Corporate Democrats make this “Grand Bargain.”
Here is what Fix the Debt is saying.
“Congressional Leaders & President Obama are discussing a deal to address the Fiscal Cliff. We must make sure that any deal that is put in place both addresses the fiscal cliff, but also works to put the debt on a downward path.
Here is a script you can use for when you are connected:
Hi, my name is ____________ and I am calling from [YOUR city/town], State.
I’m calling to urge the Senator to pass an agreement to tackle our nation’s debt crisis that is supported by members of both parties that both cuts government spending and raises revenue in order to pave the way for a strong economic future.
This matters to me because ______________.
- I am a parent and don’t want to kick the can down the road for my kids’ generation to deal with crippling national debt or a double dip recession.
- I am a small business owner and my success and the jobs of my employees depend on a strong economy.
- I am a veteran, and I know that our nation’s fiscal strength is a matter of national security.
Can I count on the Senator to support a deal to avert the fiscal cliff?
Thank you for your time. Congress must work together to find common ground to avert the fiscal cliff and pave the way for a strong economic future.
