Dear Friend,

As early as tonight, the Senate will vote on a resolution filed by Majority Leader Harry Reid in support of raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires to help close the budget deficit.

While it's non-binding, the timing of the resolution is important.

There's an epidemic of home foreclosures. Unemployment is rampant. The cost of food, gas and health care is going up. Families across the country are falling into poverty, while many more are struggling just to get by.

Yet Republicans who support all the policies that created the deficit are holding Americans hostage in ongoing negotiations over raising the debt ceiling. And what are they demanding? Cuts, cuts and more cuts.

Call your senators and tell them to support taxing millionaires and billionaires.

There is something deeply wrong with our priorities as a country if we're cutting back on services for children and the elderly, the sick and the destitute, and anything that helps the middle class stay afloat while simultaneously cutting taxes for the likes of Paris Hilton and the Koch brothers.

Progressives need to offer an alternative to the morally bankrupt and economically baseless dogma of "tax cuts for the rich, massive spending cuts for everyone else." And the alternative cannot be simply to propose slightly less brutal spending cuts. We need to put tax increases back on the table.

Call Sens. Grassley and Harkin and tell them: Tax millionaires and billionaires.

Thank you for speaking out.
