"Dear Arnaldo --

According to our files, you are currently living in California's 3oth Congressional District. The President's opponents in Congress are gearing up for a fight.

Their plan? Obstruct progress and delay action on our agenda during these last few weeks of this session of Congress.

Which battles go our way is unknown -- what's certain is that failure to act will hurt the economy, the middle class, the unemployed, the military, and our national security.

Because among other critical items, our agenda includes extending tax cuts for the middle class, repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," making sure those who are out of work get the relief they need, passing the DREAM Act, and ratifying the New START Treaty -- a nuclear arms agreement critical to national security.

These issues aren't going away, and we can't afford to let Congress kick them down the road to the next set of legislators -- or the next generation.

Organizing for America is waging a campaign to make sure Congress takes action on these critical priorities before the end of the year -- but we need your help. We're counting on 13 donations from Santa Barbara to get the job done.

Will you pitch in $3 or more now to support Organizing for America and help continue to push back on obstructionism?

We're talking about legislation that will help Americans of all stripes, in every state. Almost every one has strong bipartisan support.

We're fighting to make sure middle-class Americans don't wake up on January 1st with higher taxes.

We're fighting for an arms agreement that every U.S. president since Reagan has renewed or supported.

We're fighting to repeal legislation that prevents brave Americans from serving openly alongside their fellow troops -- a repeal endorsed by top military leaders that a Pentagon study just confirmed will have no impact on readiness or morale.

We're fighting for unemployment benefits for Americans when they need it most.

If we fail to act on these items, those who will pay for that failure are not politicians in Washington -- they're our neighbors, our troops, our classmates, and our friends and family.

But some in Congress are proving that they're willing to put politics over people, no matter what the cost.

We're making sure they don't get away with it. We're sending a much different message -- one of action, organizing, and progress -- and we're making sure that's the message that reaches Congress.

So organizers and supporters like you are on the ground, reaching out to their communities. We're writing letters to the editors of newspapers across the country. We're pressuring Congress with calls from their constituents.

But this organizing, as always, relies on support from folks like you.

Please donate $3 or more right now to help us fight back:
