Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s new pick for vice president, proposed a budget in Congress that would cost America more than a million jobs in 2013 alone.
And Romney’s record of outsourcing and job-destroying means that a Romney-Ryan administration could throw America right back into recession.
That’s why we have to stop them in their tracks by exposing how their policies would put a million of our friends and neighbors out of work next year.
We’re organizing “Pink Slip” flyering actions this Thursday, August 16—where we’ll hand out Romney-Ryan pink slips to make sure voters and the media tell the truth about the Romney-Ryan plan for America’s economy. We’ll invite other MoveOn members and make sure you have all the tools you need.
Nationwide, we’re stepping up our grassroots game with a goal to distribute 1 million pink slips—to represent the million jobs that a Romney-Ryan budget would cost us in just one year.
Polls show that our messaging about Romney is working: 64% of voters think Romney favors the rich over everyone else—so our message is breaking through.This is our chance to cement the truth about Romney-Ryan policies before they spin a different story at the Republican National Convention in a few weeks.
Leading an event like this is really easy to do—and our message is amplified by the hundreds of events happening around the country on the same day. All you need is to print out a stack of “pink slips” and pick a spot with heavy foot traffic. We’ll invite other MoveOn members in your community to join—since it’s always more fun with a crowd.
