A letter from the Congressional Progressive Caucus

Read a letter to Rebuild members from the Congressional Progressive Caucus about their new bill, the RESTORE the American Dream for the 99% Act (or the 99% Act for short):

Dear Friend,

We are the co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and, unlike far too many of our colleagues in Washington, we know that the 99% is right--we need bold action right now to turn our economy around.

That's why we’ve introduced a new bill in Congress yesterday, the "RESTORE the American Dream for the 99% Act." It takes ideas that more than 130,000 of you crafted for the Contract for the American Dream and puts them into a comprehensive bill for fixing our broken economy--from creating 5 million jobs in two years, to ending the war in Afghanistan, to a new tax on millionaires and Wall Street greed.

We think the bill can really open up a whole new debate in Washington.

The bill would provide grants for on-the-job training, invests $50 billion to rebuild our roads and bridges, creates a national infrastructure bank and improves the “Buy America” provision to make sure that our government contracts employ people right here at home. ‘

We would love for you to take a look at the bill for yourself.

Thank you so much.
