Letter to Speaker Boehner and Congress about the Sequester & March 1, 2013

Dear Speaker Boehner and Congress:

What are your goals as Speaker of the House?

No matter what talking points you use or grandstanding you use to try and justify possibly letting the Sequester happen, what do you think people will remember? Do you think they will praise the GOP? Or, do you think the public will blame any possible negative consequences on you, Speaker Boehner, and your colleagues?

What happened to the commitment to create jobs for Americans?

It is time to move away from the fiscal cliff and come to your senses. The Sequester would cause a loss of possibly 1 million jobs or more. Is this what you want to happen?

The Deficit is shrinking.

It has been shrinking since President Obama took office in 2009 and continues to shrink.

Rachel Maddow on the Deficit

Stand on the Side of the American People and American Workers & Families

The American people are concerned about your lack of action to stop the Sequester which will harm our economy, harm many hard working Americans who will be furloughed from their important jobs, and cut important programs that save lives, feed needy families and protect Americans.

You were elected to serve Americans. Please know that the American people are watching what you will do. If our economy tanks because the Sequester wasn’t stopped, the responsibility for economic disaster will be placed squarely at the feet of those who refused to come to the table to compromise for the sake of all Americans.

Please take bold action for all Americans regardless of their political party. Stand up and lead the House to protect our economy and insure that Americans have jobs.

That is why you must take action to Stop the Sequester.

We are counting on you to do the right thing.
