We’ve got some important news about getting our elected leaders to take the necessary steps to stop the policies of outsourcing.
The Senate will take up the Bring Jobs Home Act tomorrow. This bill—S. 2884—would stop allowing corporations to deduct their moving expenses when they offshore good American jobs to other countries.
Call your senators now at 888-659-9401 and tell them to vote YES on the Bring Jobs Home Act tomorrow. Even if you already have called, your senators need to hear from you again.
And this week, a new report showed Romney’s tax plan would create even more incentives for corporations to ship jobs overseas.
Romney is not the only politician, though, who has been on the wrong side of job creation for working families. Politicians continue to support measures that reward corporate CEOs and leave the rest of us to take the hit.
Now they have a chance to move toward a comprehensive plan to stop outsourcing and create family-sustaining jobs in the United States. This not only must include passing the Bring Jobs Home Act but should also:
Please call your senators today at 888-659-9401 and ask for their support for the Bring Jobs Home Act.
Thank you for your continued support to stop the policies of outsourcing.
P.S. After you have made your call, go here to check out the new “Meet Mitt Romney Mr. 1%” website. The website includes shareable infographics, video and ways you can get involved and vote your values.
Hey Friend, just wanted to give you a quick update. In just 2 days, we are more than halfway towards our fundraising goal for ThinkProgress. Thank you!
We don’t have any mugs, ball caps, or tote bags to offer. But we’ll promise to keep fighting for the truth — something that’s going to be much harder to come by in 2012.
As always, feel free to email me with any questions or comments.

In 2012, Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers and others on the far-right are planning to spend nearly half a billion dollars to influence the political debate. Their goal is to make sure that the national dialogue protects their own deep pockets at the expense of the rest of the nation.
ThinkProgress is working around the clock to fight back with the truth. This past year, we traveled around the country to confront the right-wing with tough questions. We exposed their underhanded tactics, and crunched the numbers behind their radical policy schemes.
Next year, there is even more at stake and we need to work even harder. But we can’t do it without your help. We need to raise $25,000 this week to help fund our reporting for the coming year.
We have made a huge impact this year. A few examples:
Our influence is scaring many on the right. The powerful corporate front group ALEC kicked our reporters out of a conference, and the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity launched a smear campaign against one of our writers.
We need your support now, more than ever, to keep up the fight in 2012.
P.S. We never stop. Please pitch in $5 and it’ll be the hardest working $5 you’ve ever spent.
