Now we need to hold the politicians to their promises.
Join thousands of folks across our state from Working Washington, SEIU, Washington CAN!, and other groups who will be telling the Senator we want what we voted for: we want the top 1% to pay their fair share so we can have jobs, not cuts.
Thousands of us made phone calls and knocked on doors to get out the vote this year because we knew how high the stakes were. For many of us, the election came down to a simple choice: healthcare for our families and good jobs for our communities — or tax cuts for the rich and budget cuts for the rest of us.
The votes are in and the verdict was clear: the 99% want jobs, not cuts. That's why we elected Jay Inslee to be our next Governor and that's why we're sending Suzan DelBene to Congress.
The top 1% wanted something different. Voters rejected their agenda on Election Day, but that's not going to stop them from trying to pressure Congress to give them more tax cuts, more special favors, and more of the same.
And that means we have to keep pushing back.
The first step: join the tele-town hall on November 12th to learn more about the issues before Congress and let Senator Patty Murray know what you think about about the 1% agenda of more tax cuts for the rich and more cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security for the rest of us.
Together, we have the power to push the politicians to do the job that we elected them to do.
It starts Monday.
