Putting Families First Campaign

Sign the Petition

House Republicans celebrate being the party of no and status quo while:
  • more than 3.2 million Americans have lost their jobs,
  • the stock market has plummeted wiping out nearly $7 trillion stock market wealth and endangering thousands of investors' nest eggs,
  • and one in 10 homeowners was delinquent on mortgage payments or in foreclosure this fall.

Times are tough: tell Republicans in Congress to put families first.

About the "Families First Campaign"

Listen to a sample radio ad:

The DCCC is launching the second phase of the Putting Families First campaign on the economic recovery bill by running automated calls in seven targeted Republican freshman districts. The calls focus on the Republicans' out of step priorities by putting partisan politics before the needs of the jobs in their districts.

In addition to the automated calls this week, the DCCC ran strategic radio ads last week in 28 Republican districts, including in the seven freshmen Republican's districts. The DCCC also began a grassroots initiative last week which includes targeted e-mails to 3 million voters and nearly 100,000 person-to-person telephone calls.

House Republicans just don't get it.

Even after unprecedented efforts by President Obama to reach across the aisle, every House Republican voted "no" on the Obama economic recovery plan.

Once again, Republicans have placed partisanship before millions of Americans struggling to make ends meet during these tough times. And, at their own retreat last week, Republicans actually cheered when they watched a video of their shameful vote.

At this defining moment, we cannot back down. That's why the DCCC has launched the Putting Families First grassroots campaign.
