Again tonight, the President took to the bullypulpit, this time asking directly - in a televised address to the nation - for our help in breaking the current gridlock in Congress over the debt ceiling. In his remarks tonight, he said:
If you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of Congress know. If you believe we can solve this problem through compromise, send that message.
Whether you've done so already or not, it's important to email your representative in Congress tomorrow (Tuesday) in response to the President's request.
I know it may seem futile, but our elected officials MUST hear from US and not just the paid lobbyists and big money PACs! Please take a minute and write your Congressman. Then let me know that you’ve done it - and PLEASE forward this email to everyone you know! Thanks.
