Dear The McGlynn,

Beginning this past
weekend, thousands have dug in for a long-term protest on Wall Street. They come
with a simple demand — pay your fair share. The President has proposed higher
taxes on the wealthy, but only grassroots activism can make that happen.

Add
your voice to the chorus of those camped out on Wall Street.

Tell
Congress and the President that we want to end corporate subsidies and the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan, build a stronger social safety net, and make public
investments in jobs and infrastructure. The majority of Americans want it, and
what’s more there are lots of bills gathering dust that could make this
happen.

The President’s proposed “Buffett Rule” would have those making
over a million dollars a year pay the same tax rate as those in the middle
class, reducing the deficit by some $4.4 billion. But the proposal doesn’t go
far enough to rein in corporate greed.

We are at the dawn of a movement
that could pull our economy back from the brink. But Congress members ignore
polls and actions that are not on the television or are not brought directly to
their doors.

So let’s magnify the demonstrations on Wall Street. Sign
this letter to Congress and the President.

There’s more to come next
month, when thousands will gather in D.C. beginning October 6th. Details are at
October2011.org.

Please spread the word by forwarding this message to your
friends.

Sincerely,
Sarah, Aimee, David
and the RootsAction
team
