Progressive Change Campaign Committee
Adam Green, co-founder
Take a deep breath. The Huffington Post and CNN reported this morning that President Obama is ready to cave again to Republicans — this time on the Bush tax cuts he campaigned against in 2008.
As Republicans boast that their #1 priority is to defeat Obama in 2012, we’ve seen nothing but capitulation and talk of “compromise” from the President since Election Day.
It’s time for us to ask: President Obama, ARE YOU KIDDING? Fight the Republicans already!
Sign our petition telling President Obama that Americans want him to fight the Bush tax cuts for millionaires — and that Democrats will keep losing if he keeps caving.
I’ll be on MSNBC’s Ed Show tonight at 6:15pm EST — and will announce the progress of our petition. The White House and Democratic leaders will be watching. So please join over 28,000 others and sign now.
Make no mistake, this petition is a rallying cry.
Our days of “trusting” that Democratic leaders have some brilliant plan are over. We saw the results last Tuesday when many Obama voters were not inspired enough to return to the polls.
Progressives need to push Democratic leaders to fight for popular progressive change — and win. Sign the petition telling Obama to fight the Bush tax cuts here — then, pass this to as many progressive friends as you can think of.
Working together, we’ll push and push Democratic leaders until they finally fight for “change we can believe in.”
Thanks for being a bold progressive.

Clinton raised the taxes for the rich and created more jobs than any other time; Bush lowered taxes for the rich and we lost more jobs than ever. We’ve got to try and help the majority of Americans and I would be happy to pay more if I was making that kind of income. What’s wrong with our wealthy that don’t want to help those that are less fortunate? The divide of classes in this country is getting wider and wider. It’s like the people with healthcare worrying that ‘their’ healthcare may suffer; yet, they don’t care about the (now) 59 million of Americans that can’t afford health insurance because the insurance companies are making billions in profits. How dare anyone think that they’re any better than any other American. If our founding fathers ever dreamed that there would be so many doing without critical healthcare they would have put it in the Constitution. They just never thought we would allow this to happen.
I think we have been sold out by Obama. After all the talk on the tax cuts for the rich and now he caves to their demands. They could have found some sort of funding for the unemployed in this country, but to let the Republicans have their way is a disgrace to all of us. I will not vote for him again. I am so in awe of the whole situation. God help our country. I think we need to throw them all out and get a whole new group to run this country.
