The next few weeks will reveal whether President Obama’s reelection will be interpreted as a mandate to help fix the federal budget by asking the rich to pay their fair share of taxes. His call to allow the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% of Americans (people making over $250,000 per year) to expire is a small step toward reversing tax policies that have shifted responsibility from the rich to the rest over the past few decades. You can do three easy things to help President Obama accomplish this task: watch this animated Youtube video narrated by Ed Asner, share it with your friends and family, and click below to send an email supporting higher taxes on the wealthy to your congressperson.

You've seen the video, and know the rich need to begin paying their fair share of taxes so that we can have good schools and strong services once more. Now, make that happen by contacting your elected officials and telling them to vote for rescinding the Bush tax cuts on the rich.
