Please, DO IT NOW.
Senator Bernie Sanders (Indp.VT), is one of the few who have consistently stood up for 99ers, the unemployed and regular Americans against the corporations, big banks and stone-walling politicians. Help Senator Sanders Help 99ers. Send in your 99er story and why we need a Tier V or more weeks included in the UI legislation currently being negotiated on Capital Hill. Even if you are not a 99er, but know and care for someone who is, we want to hear from you. Many Senators and Representatives are very angry that a deal has been made to extend tax cuts for the rich, while current and future 99ers are being thrown under the bus. Give them the back up they need to fight for us. Email your story to: DearBernieSanders@gmail.com .
Many, many 99ers, unemployed still receiving UI and our supporters spent the last year, and longer, faxing and emailing letters to our elected representatives. NOW is an opportunity to put all our letters together as one STRONG statement that Senator Sanders and all the other Senators that support us can use to show that we are suffering and MUST be included. If you have one of your letters still on your computer, you are only a few clicks away from doing your part. Send it to DearBernieSanders@gmail.com.
99er Alexandra J. will print them out and take the letters to the Senator's office, with whom she is working. CNN went to Vermont to cover Alex reading a few of the letters and taking the stack of printed letters to his office. The Senator is, of course, in DC, but he is aware and very supportive of this campaign. DO NOT DELAY! We are off to a GREAT start, but we need many more personal stories if our plight is to be heard. There IS HOPE. Please do your part for yourself and all 99ers: DearBernieSanders@gmail.com. Thank you.
