Two million more people are about to run out of unemployment benefits.
Here’s what AFSCME is asking members to say:
I’m calling to urge you to stand up for regular people by supporting a year-long extension in unemployment benefits and by opposing more Bush tax cuts for the richest.
This is no time for Congress to turn its back on working families. Unemployment insurance serves as a critical lifeline for Americans struggling to get back to work. We should lend a hand to working families, but cutting taxes for the wealthiest is unnecessary and will choke off funding for critical government and community services.
Please stand up for regular people by supporting a year-long extension in unemployment insurance and opposing more Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
