President Obama launched the most ambitious effort to stimulate the economy in our nation's history when he signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on Tuesday.
Your representatives need to hear from you when they vote for the change you mandated in November. Doing what's right can be thankless when the culture of Washington tries to make political games out of the issues that matter to everyday Americans.
You're part of a powerful grassroots movement that can change that dynamic.
According to our records, you live in Illinois's 4th district.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Sen. Richard Durbin, and Sen. Roland Burris's votes were crucial to passing the bill and creating and saving jobs in Illinois.
Can you pick up the phone right now to thank Rep. Gutierrez, Sen. Durbin, and Sen. Burris?
