Post by Guest Tue Jun 14, 2011 3:31 pm

Last month's lousy jobs numbers have politicians in both parties talking about jobs again -- but they are mostly mouthing the words. The big dogs are focused on deficits, specifically the negotiations about how much and what to cut as the price for lifting the debt limit. The decisions coming out of Washington over the next months are more likely to cost jobs than generate them.

Washington seems impervious. So progressive legislators have decided to challenge the limits of the debate. Penny was talking at a press conference sponsored by ProgressiveCongress.org to launch a 12 city summer jobs tour by Progressive Caucus members, dubbed: "The Speakout for Good Jobs Now! Rebuild the American Dream Tour." (Full disclosure: I serve as chair of the board of ProgressiveCongress.org. For dates and times, go to www.SpeakOutTour.com)

The purpose of the tour is to listen -- something legislators aren't exactly famous for -- and to encourage working and unemployed people to speak out and make their voices heard. It will extend through July, with more events still being added. Organizers are hoping to build a tidal wave of demand for action on jobs that will crest into congressional town meetings in August.

the point these people seem to keep ignoring is that many have run out of time....ITS AN EMERGENCY!! I dont get why its so hard for them to understand Crying or Very sad Its like all common sense has gone right out the window.

On the other hand, I am glad to see someone doing something. It just should of been done a long time ago.

I agree S&T. We need to all be sending emails and calls daily. At least they are trying to address this in a real way, not with legislation only, they are trying to bring real attention to this issue, which for all of us has been an emergency for three years.
