It sure is. But giving in to frustration won’t put anyone back to work. If we want to move this country forward, we have to look for every opportunity to overcome the obstruction and demand real results for working families.
One of the biggest opportunities we have right now is right here in Nevada. In the Senate, Shelley Berkley would be a strong voice for working families — and a critical vote when it comes time to overcome the kind of partisan gamesmanship we’ve seen.
Will you join me in support of my friend Shelley by making a contribution of $5, $10, or more to her campaign right now? She must raise at least $50,000 by the end of the month to keep pace with her opponent, so please give generously and give today.
The well-funded special interest groups planning to spend millions of dollars in this race feed on frustration. After all, their benefactors are doing just fine. They don’t need the help. And they’re hoping that, by grinding the gears of government to a halt, they will convince people like you to throw up your hands and decide not to get involved.
If their plan succeeds, we’ll really have something to be frustrated about. Imagine how we’ll feel if we watch Republicans destroy Medicare and Social Security, give billions more in taxpayer funded giveaways to Big Oil executives, and leave the middle class out to dry.
That’s why this campaign is so important. I’ve known Shelley long enough to know that she’ll be a tireless fighter for the middle class in the Senate — and that she’ll outwork anyone on the campaign trail. But she can’t do it alone.
These are difficult times for our country — and frustrating times for those of us who want to see it moving in the right direction.
But now is the time to turn that frustration into action. Don’t just stand by and wish things would change. Make them change. Help Shelley Berkley bring her voice to the Senate.
