Citizens from across the state call Sen. Ayotte’s office urging her to reject Boehner’s so-called “Plan B”
Activists working with The Action gathered in Concord to call, with an over 75% response rate
Concord – Activists working with the The Action, a joint project of Granite State Progress and the New Hampshire Citizens’ Alliance, spoke with people from around the state asking them to help urge rejection of Boehner’s ‘Plan B’ – and nearly 80% of them of agreed to them to do just that. They agreed to call Senator Kelly Ayotte’s office in Washington, asking her to the so-called “Plan B” bill put forward by Republican House leadership.
“It seemed like everyone we called was eager to jump in and call,” said Melissa Bernardin, who captained the phone bank. “I’ve been involved in a lot of phone banks and I can’t remember a time when we got a more enthusiastic response – people are really fired up about the so-called ‘fiscal cliff.’”
The results speak for themselves – nearly 80% of the voters that The Action reached agreed to call Ayotte’s office and make their voices heard on Boehner’s so-called ‘Plan B.’
This measure, proposed by Speaker Boehner, would recklessly perpetuate tax cuts for the wealthiest few – and in fact would give millionaires an average $50,000 tax break – while at the same time raising taxes by an average of $1,000 on 25 million working families with children and students.
