We can beat them
|automat -- |
From the day President Obama took office, Democrats have worked to rebuild our country's economy, put into place the basic financial reforms needed to empower and protect consumers, and lay down a new foundation for growth.
Republicans made a different choice: They locked arms with the special interests and voted to protect the insurance companies, credit card lenders, and bankers on Wall Street.
The GOP embraced a singular goal: opposition to the President's agenda.
Now Republicans are scheming to win back Congress. With a majority, they'll do everything they can to reverse the progress Democrats have made. They'll turn back the clock on behalf of their special interest friends, their big donors, and the extreme right-wing elements that have taken over their party.
But we have a plan to beat the GOP.
Since May, we've been focused on an unprecedented push to elect Democrats who will fight alongside President Obama. With the help of supporters like you, we've launched the strongest, most sophisticated effort this party has ever put together for an election like this.
The special interests don't fund it -- our Vote 2010 campaign relies entirely on supporters like you.
Can you chip in $5 or more to power this work?
Republicans have promised to repeal health insurance reform and roll back new consumer protections -- but it won't stop there. Across the country, the GOP has nominated a set of right-wing ideologues who are vowing to undo the victories won by our parents and grandparents -- the promises those generations made to the future.
Republicans are supporting candidates like Nevada Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle who believe the United States should leave the United Nations and that we should shut down the Department of Education.
They're working to elect conservatives like Alaska Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller who argue that unemployment benefits are "not constitutionally authorized" and that we should end Social Security.
They're fighting for people like Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul who believe that civil rights should be up for debate in this country because they think that businesses should have the right to discriminate based on race, gender, disability, or any other factor.
We all understand the consequences of this election.
That's why grassroots Democrats are knocking on thousands of doors every week. That's why we have a goal of reaching out to 15 million voters by November 2nd.
Americans have a choice to make with this election, but from now until November, we're going to work to make our case.
