Let Your Voice Be Heard

I received this a few minutes ago from the Detroit Chamber of Commerce. As you know the loans for the auto industry were not approved last night. In my opinion this isn't about saving an industry or saving union jobs. It's not even about Michigan. This issue effects every worker in every State. It's about giving company's loans that they can't get because of the financial crisis. The hey-day of the US auto industry may be over, but the impact that this industry has upon the Country's economy cannot be under estimated. Millions of jobs, millions of businesses would be affected. We cannot stand idly by and let these companies die.

Please use the links below, from the Chamber, to voice your support for the loans.

The Fate of the Country Lies with You and the Government’s Own “Big Three”

“Imagine a category five natural disaster hits your home state and the government tells FEMA not to come. That is the equivalent of what happened to Michigan last night,” said one chamber member this morning. We couldn't have said it better ourselves, except it's not just about Michigan. It's about the whole country.

Congress failed to act on providing the Big Three with bridge loans, which now has us sitting on the verge of one of the largest economic meltdowns in the history of the United States. The government’s own big three – President Bush, Secretary Paulson and Chairman Bernanke – need to exercise their powers now. They are the only ones who can save us from losing millions of jobs nationwide. The fate of the nation literally rests in their hands. They are the only people left who can tap into the $700 billion of TARP funds used in the financial bailout and have the Federal Reserve offer the Big Three loans.

It is of monumental importance that both you, your friends, family members, co-workers and anyone else across the country who has stake in American businesses use the Vote4Biz Action Center.
