Stand your ground, Mr. President.

Dear Friend,

Last week Democrats won big at the ballot box, with President Obama
crushing Mitt Romney and Democrats winning more seats in the Senate.

But Congress is still headed for a major showdown over federal
spending before the end of the year.

And as Paul Krugman noted this weekend, once again Republicans are
"threatening to tank the economy unless their demands are met."

We need President Obama to stand up and draw a line in the sand to
reject any deal that cuts Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid
benefits, or cuts taxes for the wealthiest Americans.

So I just signed a petition telling President Obama to stand his
ground and not give in to Republican hostage takers.

I hope you do, too. You can find out more and easily sign the petition
at the link below:
