Call republicans in the House & tell them: tax the rich!

I just called bob goodlattes office & told their recording that he should tax the rich & work with the President because , we , the American people were not going to put up with another four years of BS.so then I thought how powerful it would be if thousands called them with the same message. I'm throwing it out there for anyone who thinks it would help the President.

1. The Republican House will only cooperate if forced. How that can done I don't

know. Let's hope that the President and the Dems can solve that problem.

3. I totally agree....

In fact, I will be posting a letter to many democratic blogs to get people to email a simple letter to their congressmen and senators. We MUST support the President and let the Republicans know that we AGREE with the Tax changes to those making +$250,000!

Great minds think alike!

You can get your congressman and senator emails online here:

Dear Honorable Congressman,
My name is and I am a constituent of the State of fron State District .
I am extremely concerned about the Politics currently taking place in our House of Representatives. As a voter and an American citizen, I want to see my State Representative put Politics aside, and place the following vote the way I want you to vote, and not the way Speaker Boehner wants you to vote.
I request that you vote in FAVOR of our President, President Obama.
Specifically, I want you to vote to keep the tax breaks for middle-income Americans beginning January 1, 2013 and vote for increased taxes to be paid by higher income Americans, or those making OVER $250,000.00 per year.
Thank you for your time,

Citizen of the State of , District

8. Thanks. Will do.

I place Most Respectfully, and my signature, of course, at the end. Wouldn't it be great if Congress actually voted against themselves? (Because most of them make at least 250,000. if they include their spouses.) And it would be awesome if the tax funds were spent on struggling Americans for a while, creating jobs, as well as green energy research? I've seen too many nuclear plants leaking radioactive waste that no one knows how to stop or contain!! Nobody!! Their best answer? We may have to put it in the ocean, which is where the leak was heading anyway. Check out Washington State! I find this unacceptable. Also, much litigation needs to occur to insert privacy expectations/protections into Patriot Act/FISA which requires funds. ACLU is doing a lot of this. I give when I can. They are going up against the govt. which has unlimited funds, taxpayer funds. Because freedom can't protect itself. I suppose I could send a separate letter for each issue. But we have excellent Democratic Reps here. I helped one get elected. They are very receptive.
