Hey Senators, remember us? While you play your disgusting politics in Washington, more than another half million of us lost jobs last month--the same month these folks gathered in Washington. (Official U.S. gov figures say nearly 600,000.) We're watching you. We're waiting for you to listen to President Obama: "If we do not move swiftly to sign the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law, an economy that is in crisis will be faced with catastrophe. Millions more Americans will lose their jobs. Home will be lost. Families will go without health care. Our crippling dependence on foreign oil will continue. That is the price of inaction... The scale and scope of this plan is right... Let's put Americans to work doing the work that America needs done."
