The clock is ticking!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled holiday relaxation to bring you a critical message: Moms (you!) are needed to help alleviate a severe case of Congressional foot dragging.  No one can light a fire under slow moving bottoms like moms!

Why?  

Because if Congress doesn't act quickly, then after 11:59pm on December 31st our nation could go over the "fiscal cliff."  And if we go off the fiscal cliff because some in Congress refuse to end the Bush-era tax cuts for the very wealthy, then not only will crucial public services be in jeopardy, but taxes for the average family could go up by $2,000 per year.

That's in the next 48 hours.  

Join us in sending a united and clear message to Congress - Don't prioritize billionaires and millionaires over children and families.

***To SIGN ON this letter to Congress with us, simply add your name (and any personal comments) to the form on the right-hand side of this page.

To Members of Congress:

Don’t raise taxes on moms and families in order to protect Bush-era tax breaks for billionaires and millionaires. It's time for Congress to end the Bush tax cuts for the very wealthy, to defend investments in America's working families, to prevent drastic cuts to healthcare, education, and critical economic security programs. Protect Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security--as well as moms and families across the nation.
