Tell Congress: Support Job Creation and Prosperity Economics

    1. Sponsored by

      Change Nation

We have a failing economy, with high unemployment rates and a struggling middle class. But austerity economics and painful spending cuts that undermine the health and security of the middle class are not the answer.

Instead of austerity economics, we need prosperity economics -- which invest in our society to create greater health, broader security, increased equality of opportunity and more broadly distributed wealth.

We need to kickstart the economy with public investment that will create jobs and put Americans to work building a world-class infrastructure for transportation, communications, education, energy, and environmental protection, and providing vital public goods like education and police and fire protection.

Call for an economic plan that creates shared prosperity. Sign the petition to ask your members of Congress to support prosperity economics and public investment that will create jobs, putting Americans to work immediately.

      Austerity economics is a failure and we need a bold new direction that will create long-term growth.

      Austerity economics has been proven time after time NOT to work. Stop the obstructionism and the vendetta against President Obama and women. The Republican Congress needs to get to work for America. Their behavior continues to be disgusting and appalling.
