Take a stand for president's plan

Take a stand for president's plan

Our state is fiscally a mess and will be hit further if the federal budget is not settled in the next week. In fact our entire country will suffer.


It is time for all of us to contact our elected representatives who may be holding out on supporting the middle class. We all need to take a stand and make a phone call or send an email encouraging support for the president's well conceived plan.

We as a country need to continue forward, not stall, in getting the economy moving. If we don't make our voices heard, we are headed to worse employment numbers, fewer jobs, and an even worse situation in the state of Illinois. We do have a voice.
