I'm not flush with disposable income any more than the rest of you. I didn't even have the $25 to donate to MoveOn.org that they asked for. But I did have $10, and you betcha I donated it. Every time I get an extra $10 I'm going to do it. And, here's what else I would like to see:
- Prominently displayed everywhere on TV, Internet, etc., the voting records of all elected officials so that the poor, hungry, displaced and out-of-work can see who is on their side and they can vote accordingly next time and every time.
We need to keep sending clear messages to our government that we want our country back! If you like this idea, then feel free to copy the below message on your blog and get the word out. We got Obama in office to clean house and bring us back to prosperity. This is a way you can help and it's as easy as a small donation and copy/paste. I'm for this. This I can do. Can you?

You'd think after bankrupting our country, Republican leaders would rethink some of their ideas.
They actually tried to replace the whole stimulus bill with tax cuts for the rich. And the worst part is, they were partially successful—they gutted funding from some of the most progressive programs, like school construction and affordable health care.
We need to make sure voters back home know what these Republicans are up to. Because if we don't, they'll do it again. They'll weaken or block every important piece of legislation this year.
If you want health
care for all, if you want to stop climate change, if you want to end the
war, can you help run ads letting voters know that their senators and
representatives stood in the way of change? Since yesterday, thousands of
contributions have been coming in. But we're still $100,000 short of our
goal. Can you chip in $25 to put us over
President Obama and most of the congressional Democrats spent the last month working hard to craft a plan that would help keep hundreds of thousands of teachers from being laid off, invest in vital green-energy technology, and provide health care for folks who lose their jobs.
What did conservative
Democrats and Republicans bring to the table? Rehashed Bush policies and
tired talking points. The very same things that got us into this mess in
the first place. The stimulus will still create millions of jobs, and
it's an important first step, but it could have been even stronger.
People are really
suffering across our nation, yet Republicans are continuing to play the
same old partisan games—and they're being helped along by conservative
Democrats. Don't worry: We'll hold both Republicans and Democrats who stand in the way of
change accountable with these ads.
We need to make it crystal clear to their voters what they're doing. If we don't, these senators and representatives will stand in the way of every bit of progress we try to make this year, from clean energy to affordable health care for all. Can you chip in $25 to help us run hard-hitting ads exposing this conservative obstructionism?
Thanks for all you do.

everything they could to block Obama's stimulus. They'll
keep at it all year unless we tell their voters back home
that they're standing in the way of change. Can you chip in $25 to get some
hard-hitting ads on the air?
