The "fiscal cliff"

Democrats
Automat --

Right now, President Obama is working with leaders of both parties in Washington to reduce the deficit in a balanced way so we can lay the foundation for long-term middle-class job growth and prevent your taxes from going up.

We want to keep you informed about how the President is fighting for you so you can continue to talk to your friends, family, and neighbors. So here's the deal:


Graphic: Reducing the deficit in a balanced way The President's plan extends tax cuts for 98 percent of Americans Eliminates tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans Cuts spending by more than $3 trillion The Results


That's the President's plan, but he's not wedded to every detail. He is determined to work with Congress to find compromise and common ground. His guiding principle throughout this debate will be what's best for the middle class. He'll be fighting for you.

These problems are challenging, but they're solvable. In fact, the Senate has already passed a bill to keep your taxes low. The House needs to pass it, and Congress should get it to the President as soon as possible.

There's a lot at stake. With your help we'll continue to move this country forward.

Please forward this email and spread the word on Facebook and Twitter:

Thank you

Democrats
Automat --

We did it! Thank you.

It was a battle hard fought. We built the largest, most dynamic grassroots organization in history, and we beat back the unprecedented outside spending on the other side. On Tuesday, voters chose to move forward, giving President Obama four more years to finish what we started together.

I am so proud of the tens of thousands of supporters who made phone calls, knocked on doors till their knuckles were sore, talked to their friends and neighbors, or chipped in what they could to support President Obama and Democrats -- you all made this possible. This victory is yours.

We can't stop here.

We have more battles ahead and we need to work together with President Obama to continue building an economy from the middle class out -- and a country where prosperity, education, and equal rights aren't limited to those who can afford them.

So thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget the night we re-elected President Barack Obama, and I will never forget your support.

All the best,

Debbie

How this happened

Automat --

I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.

I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen.

You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn't easy, you pressed forward.

I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.

But I want you to take real pride, as I do, in how we got the chance in the first place.

Today is the clearest proof yet that, against the odds, ordinary Americans can overcome powerful interests.

There's a lot more work to do.

But for right now: Thank you.

Barack

Three things you can do right now

Automat --

Today is the day.

When it's over, we'll know who will be sitting in the White House for the next four years, and who will be representing us in Congress.

Right now, if you haven't already, you've got to vote.

And then, keep going. You can make a huge impact throughout the day. Find out how you can help get out the vote:

Everything we're fighting for in this election could come down to a few votes per precinct -- we all have to do our part.

Let's get this done.

See you on the other side of Election Day. Let's both do what it takes to make sure we're smiling when we get there.

Go vote - and forward this

Automat --

We know what we believe. We know the stakes.

Now we need to win.

Here are two things you should do right away:

First: If you haven't voted already, make a plan for when you're going to the polls -- and confirm your polling place and hours. And know that as long as you're at your polling place before it closes, you'll be able to vote. Make sure everyone you know has this link to confirm their polling place, too:

http://my.democrats.org/lookup

Second: We can't afford to step back and hope others will make the difference. So once you vote today, keep going. Get on the phone, get online -- all day long, there will be something you can do to help. It's all right here:

http://my.democrats.org/Do-Something

We are capable of so much when we are all in this together.

Please come through today.

Thank you,

Tomorrow

Automat --

I've been through many Election Days -- every one is a rush of nerves, excitement, anxiety, and exhaustion all at once.

The secret to getting through: Always be doing something.

So here's a resource you can keep coming back to until the polls close.

Obviously, the most important thing you need to do is vote. Confirm your polling location and hours.

Make sure you ask some neighbors to go with you when you head over.

But when you're done with that, don't wait around for the news. Make the news -- do something:

http://my.democrats.org/What-You-Can-Do

You don't even have to wait for Election Day to start. You can do something right now.

See you when it's all over.

Two simple words

Automat --

I didn't want this to get lost in the excitement of everything that will happen tomorrow, so I wanted to take a moment, right now, to say two simple words that I cannot say enough to all of you who have traveled this journey with us: Thank you.

Thank you for the kindness, warmth, and love that you have shown me, Barack, and especially our girls -- your support and your prayers mean the world to us. Thank you for the hard work and energy and passion that you have poured into this campaign -- from all those hours knocking on doors and making calls to all those times you dug a little deeper and gave what you could when it was needed the most.

Like me, you have done all this because you love this country, and you care deeply about the world we're leaving for our kids and grandkids. And you've done it because, for these last four years, you have had a chance to see the man I've known for the past 23 years: A man of honor and integrity who knows what he believes and stays true to his values. He is an honest man who knows the facts and gives them to us straight -- a man whose strength and resolve to build a better tomorrow has never wavered.

With your help, over the past four years, Barack has been able to start moving this country forward. He's rescued our economy from the brink of collapse. He's passed health reform and ended the war in Iraq. He's fought to help women get equal pay for equal work, make sure students can afford college, ensure that our seniors can retire with dignity, and that our veterans can get the benefits they have earned.

For four years, Barack has been fighting to give every single one of us a fair shot at that great American dream, no matter what we look like, where we come from, or who we love.

He's been able to do all of this only because of people like you -- because of your hard work, determination, and commitment.

And tomorrow, everything we've been working for and fighting for is at stake. Tomorrow, we will decide whether we'll keep moving this country forward for four more years. So make sure to tell everyone you know to vote, and then help every last supporter get to the polls before tomorrow night. You can even make calls to voters from the comfort of your own home using our call tool.

Our family has been truly blessed to share these past four years with all of you -- and we can't wait to continue our work together for the next four years. So tomorrow, let's get out there and finish what we started:

http://my.democrats.org/What-You-Can-Do

Thank you again for everything you've done and everything you will continue to do to bring about that change we all believe in.

Michelle

How you can help:

Automat, we're down to the wire -- we're in the midst of the largest get-out-the-vote operation I've ever seen (and I've been involved with get-out-the-vote operations for more than thirty years).

Getting your friends, family, and neighbors to the polls is the most important thing you can do now. Because if we don't get every voter to the polls, we risk losing all the progress that we've spent the last four years working for.

If you want to protect Obamacare, Pell Grants to help students get the education they deserve, and a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, you need to help get out the vote.

If you want to keep Wall Street from writing its own rules and keep millionaires and billionaires from getting tax cuts while the middle class has to foot the bill, you need to help get out the vote.

See how you can help:

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Automat, I am grateful to you

Automat --

If I don't get a chance to tell you before Election Day, I just want to say:

No matter what happens on Tuesday, I am grateful to you.

And Automat, I want to make sure we're celebrating a win to honor all the work you and millions of others have put into this.

The final budget meeting of this campaign is tomorrow, and we're finishing this election out with the resources we have on hand at midnight tonight. Every donation, no matter how large or small -- it matters.

If you can, please make a donation of $5 or more today:

https://my.democrats.org/Midnight-Deadline

Four days to go -- let's make the most of them.

Thank you,

Barack

P.S. -- This is one of your last chances to determine how this campaign ends -- tomorrow morning, the final plans are being made. If you've been thinking of making a donation, please make it today.

Women

Automat --

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: I can't understand why any woman would want to vote for Mitt Romney and the Republicans.

These guys may be trying to hide their true positions as we approach Election Day to get more votes, but the proof is in their actions.

The official Republican Party platform supports banning abortion with no exceptions -- even in cases of rape and incest. Republicans, including Congressman Paul Ryan, have voted against women receiving equal pay for equal work. Mitt Romney has vowed to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood. And Republicans in the House, led by Rep. Ryan, voted to "redefine" rape.

If you're like me and can't stand the thought of a White House and Congress controlled by men with such radical views on the rights of women in this country, donate $5 or more now.

Every election is important, but I think this one will truly define what America is about.

That's especially true for women. We risk undoing decades of progress in a single legislative session if the Republicans sweep these elections like they're hoping to do. We must stop them.

In the next few days, we have to knock on every door we can and go after every single vote. That takes resources -- which is why I'm asking you to step up today.

Please donate $5 or more now:

Thanks,

How this ends:

Automat --

We got outraised pretty badly in the first half of this past month by Mitt Romney and the Republicans, giving them a $45 million edge on us.

We don't know what kind of impact it will have in the final days of a tight race, but we still have time to fight back and make sure it will not be a decisive factor in this election.

Automat, I need you to make a donation of $5 or more to close the gap and finish strong.

I know I've asked a lot of you.

No matter how this ends, on Election Night I'll get up on stage and thank you for all the time and effort and hard-earned dollars you've put into this. But I also want to be able to tell our country that our hard work paid off, and that we will continue moving forward for four more years.
