Economic Stimulus

This is the email I sent to my Republican senator, Arlen Specter, today.

Feel free to use it and email your own senators to support the stimulus bill.

I am writing to urge you to support President Obama's economic stimulus bill. This election was nothing if not a referendum on the economy and whose economic policy Americans wanted to move forward. Barack Obama won, including a decisive victory here in Pennsylvania.

We support a package that includes public works, benefits for low-income families (including contraception for low-income families that can ill afford another child in this time of economic stress), and job creation. This is what we voted for in November and what we urge you to support now.
