Last weekend, across the country, working families kicked off the national 2012 grassroots canvassing efforts to talk to their friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers about the radical Romney/Ryan agenda that will outsource jobs, end Medicare and raise taxes on middle class families to give tax cuts to millionaires.
In Wisconsin, volunteers went door to door in Eau Claire, Kenosha, Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, Racine, Wausau and Waukesha.
In total, working families talked to people at 640,000 homes in 23 states. And for the first time ever Workers’ Voice partnered with MoveOn.org Political Action for canvassing.
The Canvass Leaflets & Mail Piece Will Highlight:
• Outsourcing- The Romney/Ryan plan would send 800,000 jobs a year overseas by giving companies incentives to outsource. Romney is considered a “pioneer” of outsourcing – he sent thousands of jobs overseas as CEO of Bain Capital.
• Tax Cuts for the Wealthy - The Romney/Ryan plan would raise taxes on the middle class by $2,000 to pay for an average of $250,000 in tax cuts for millionaires.
• Ending Medicare – The Romney/Ryan plan would gut Medicare, costing families thousands of dollars in additional premiums while lowering the quality of care.
• Jobs Lost - The Romney/Ryan plan would result in America losing 4.1 million jobs in the next three years.
