Subject: BREAKING: GOP Leaves Town

Daniel --

Republicans plan to skip town tonight without voting for the payroll tax cut extension.

Failure to extend the payroll tax cut would mean a $1,000 tax hike for the average American family. Economists say it could also cost between 400,000 and 1 million American jobs.

And get this: according to Politico, in a closed-door meeting Speaker Boehner told the Republican House caucus that extending the payroll tax cut and helping Americans pay their bills is "chicken shi--."

That's the kind of reckless attitude that got our economy in trouble in the first place. Now, let's put the pressure on Republicans to stop this.

Help us reach our new goal of 100,000 people telling Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor and the rest of the Tea Party Republicans in Congress that extending the payroll tax cut is critical to the American people. It's definitely not "chicken sh--" >>

Daniel, we only have until midnight to send this message to Republicans. Make sure you sign immediately.

Friend --

The current debate about the payroll tax cut is showing the Republicans' true colors.

With Congress set to go out of session in a matter of days, GOP Leadership is going to let Tea Party Republicans skip town for the holidays without agreeing to an extension of the payroll tax cut.

A failure by Congressional Republicans to extend the existing payroll tax cut will cause a tax increase for millions of hardworking Americans at a time when they are trying hard to get back on their feet.

The average American family will see a tax increase over $1,000 a year if the payroll tax cut is not extended. Worse yet, economists estimate that blocking this middle class tax cut could cost between 400,000 and 1 million American jobs.

Help us reach 50,000 signatures by Midnight Thursday telling Republicans to extend the payroll tax cut.

Sign our petition today telling Boehner, Cantor and the rest of the Tea Party Republicans in Congress that extending the payroll tax cut is critical to the American people and the American economy.
Congress must not leave for the holidays without extending this vital tax break to the American people. But if Republicans have their way, that's exactly what will happen.

Speaker Boehner and Eric Cantor are saying the only way they will even consider extending the payroll tax cut is by funding it with cuts to Medicare and slashing critical environmental regulations. They're even trying to couple the tax cut extension with giveaways for Big Oil.

The Democratic plan to extend the payroll tax cut would cut payroll taxes for 98 percent of employers and put cash in the hands of about 160 million families. It would do all of this while ensuring Medicare and Social Security are kept safe and readily available to American seniors.

Stand with me today and tell Boehner, Cantor and Republicans in Congress to extend the payroll tax cut immediately >>

Thank you,

Nancy Pelosi

P.S. It's time for Republicans to do the right thing and show us whether they stand with the wealthiest 1% or with the rest of America. Sign our petition right now >>
