Tonight I e-mailed my repuke senator (Rubio) and
repuke rep. (Cliff Stearns). I asked them now that they have heard the president's Jobs Bill Speech, what do they intend to do? I asked if they were going to continue to obstruct everything the president proposes in the hope that Obama will fail or will they finally put country before party.

President Obama did his part tonight and now it is our turn to do our part to help him. Write, call, e-mail your senators and representatives (especially the repukes) to let them know we mean business. Americans are sick of their partisan politics and we expect them to do the job they were elected to do. It's time for them to listen to the American people and not the corporations. WE WANT JOBS AND WE ARE SICK OF THEIR FOOLISH ANTICS!!

3. Emailed McCotter tonight and told him I expect him to
vote in the interest of his constituants instead of his party for a change. I won't hear back from him, I never do.

9. gag, I wish I had Democratic Representatives
I would be contacting them to oppose it.

Tax cuts for the wealthy to create jobs. Where have I heard that before?

"We need tax relief that creates the greatest number of jobs. (Applause.) The goal is to create a million new jobs by the end of next year. I've submitted a good, strong plan that will help meet that goal. The United States Congress must not only listen to your voice, but must listen to the voice of somebody looking for work. We need aggressive action out of the United States Congress now." George W. Bush May 6, 2003

"Next week, I will travel to New Mexico, Nebraska and Indiana to address the nation's hardworking, small business owners, families and investors. My message to them will be simple: the surest way to grow this economy and create jobs is to leave more money in the hands of the people who earn it.
I urge every citizen to participate in this important debate and to make your voice heard. Explain to your local representative or your senators what tax relief would mean to your family and your business, and please tell the members of Congress why our economy needs that relief now." George W. Bush May 10, 2003

"I hope you'll join me in raising your voices to make sure that Congress enacts an economic stimulus plan big enough to help people who are looking for work, a plan big enough to encourage economic growth." George W. Bush May 12, 2003 in New Mexico

"I look forward to signing the economic recovery bill soon. The principle of the bill is pretty simple, that we believe the more money people have in their pockets, the more likely it is somebody is going to be able to find work in America. In other words, the more money somebody has, it means somebody is more likely to demand a good or a service, which means somebody will produce a good or a service, which means somebody is likely to find work." George W. Bush May 22, 2003

"The unemployment number is now at 6 percent, which should serve as a clear signal to the United States Congress we need a bold economic recovery package so people can find work. (Applause.) That 6-percent number should say loud and clear to members of both political parties in the United States Congress, we need robust tax relief so our fellow citizens can find a job. (Applause.)" George W. Bush May 6, 2003
