Extend tax cuts now — even for the rich

Congress should vote immediately to extend all of the Bush tax cuts.

That’s right I’ve changed my mind about soaking the rich. I’m now willing to give the wealthy a break, if that’s what it takes to keep the tax cuts in place for the rest of us.

Contact your Representatives and Senators and let them know how you feel.
