On Election Day, the American people voted and made their voices heard.
We rejected deficit reduction at the expense of working & middle class Americans, the poor & elderly.
We rejected more tax breaks for large corporations and the wealthy. Corporations and the wealthy have “raked in” all the benefits while everyone else has suffered economic loss.
One of the best ways to reduce the deficit is to put people back to work – it’s time to invest in our people and our communities.
Congress and President Obama must do the will of the people.
- End the War in Afghanistan now, bring all our troops home and care for them when they return
- Create jobs – invest in our communities and our people to grow the economy and put people back to work;
- Let the Bush Tax Cuts expire for the top 2%;
- The wealthiest and corporations must do their fair share and pay a little more
- Protect our social safety net including Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid
- Make substantial cuts to the bloated, out-of-control Pentagon budget
- Focus on negotiation and determined diplomacy rather than military power
We must invest in America’s future, create jobs and grow the economy.
Our priorities are clear: Jobs & Economic Growth, End the war in Afghanistan now, and substantial cuts to runaway Pentagon spending.
Keep the pressure on – remind Congress and President Obama that they work for the American people.
We will present the Jobs Not Wars Petition to Congress & President Obama around the time of the Inauguration.
The petition has been endorsed by more than 50 organizations, including UFPJ.
Tomorrow – December 5th – is a NATONAL CALL-IN DAY to members of the House and Senate and the White House.

We’ll send you a message tomorrow to remind you to call Congress.
Forward this email to everyone you know – ask them to join you in signing the Jobs Not Wars Petition. There is strength in numbers. Don’t let our elected officials forget who they represent.
We can, and must do better for all Americans
