What does $40 mean to you? Represent Flagler!

Let's represent Flagler County in the national debate. I sent a message via twitter. How will you send your message?

If Congress doesn’t act, the payroll tax cut will expire at the end of February and taxes will go up on 160 million hardworking Americans. The typical family earning $50,000 a year will see about $40 less each paycheck. It’s that simple.

Back in December, Congress faced this exact same predicament. People all over the country tweeted, emailed and wrote to explain how losing $40 each check would affect them. Ultimately, thanks to your stories, Congress did the right thing and passed a two-month tax cut extension – but only after a drawn-out debate that put the strength of our economy and the security of middle class families at risk.
We can’t go through that again. And hardworking families can’t afford to see their taxes go up. The fact is, that $40 is real money for those who are already struggling.

It’s more important than ever that you make sure your story is part of the debate here in Washington. Tell us what $40 means to you and your family. What would you have to go without or give up if Congress doesn’t act?

Or maybe they'll decide to have a conversation with you. You'll have a chance to persuade them to vote for President Obama. Or if they're already a supporter, you'll be able to convince them to get involved and persuade some voters themselves.

A lot of things can happen because of the simple decision you make right now.

Attend a viewing of Inside Job, narrated by Matt Damon


Just sharing this email invititation:

When's the last time you saw a movie that made you put down the popcorn, leap from your couch, and do something? Maybe it was An Inconvenient Truth or Michael Moore's Capitalism.
The Academy Award-winning documentary Inside Job is that type of movie. Narrated by Matt Damon, the film shows how Wall Street's greed—and Washington's corruption—led to a global economic meltdown. And the 1% will do more of the same again—unless the 99% stop them.
