A missive from Senator Bob Casey

James Ottavio,

Millions of Americans are still out of work, and families across the country are struggling just to get by. Nevertheless, obstructionist Republicans in the Senate have filibustered bill after bill that would put Pennsylvanians back to work.

If we can’t put politics aside and pass legislation to create jobs, things are only going to get worse. Unless Congress acts, the payroll tax cut, which put, on average, $1,000 in the pockets of workers, will soon expire. That will mean working families will have less money to put food on the table. I introduced legislation for a job creation tax credit for small businesses. This expired credit should be replaced to put people back to work and help put the economy back on track.

But instead of protecting tax breaks for the 99% percent of workers and small businesses, the other side is fighting to protect tax cuts for the top 1%– and they’re willing to bring Congress to a standstill in order to get their way.

It’s outrageous. We need to make sure these lawmakers hear the voices of people like you – so I’m asking you to add your name to help apply some public pressure to break the gridlock.

Tell Congress: pass a payroll tax cut for workers and small businesses so we can grow the economy.

This shouldn’t be a Republican issue or a Democratic issue. We need to stop with the political bickering and work together to create jobs.

I’m counting on your help to send the message.

Click here and tell Congress to take action to prevent tax increases on working families.

After you’ve added your name, please tell your friends and family to do the same. Thanks so much for your support.

Bob Casey
