• Heading to the Capitol

    Before heading to the Capitol tonight to present the American Jobs Act to a joint session of Congress, President Obama sent a message to supporters asking folks to put pressure on their lawmakers to take action on jobs.

    I'm about to head to the Capitol to ask Congress to act on my plan to put Americans back to work.

    Before I do, I wanted to write you directly to remind you that the fight to create jobs—and provide the kind of economic security for middle-class families that's been slipping away over the last decade—won't begin or end with the speech I give tonight.

    What happens will be up to you. In the coming days and weeks, it will be up to you to pressure Congress to act—or hold them accountable if they do not.

    If you're with me, let me know. And the campaign will make sure you are looped into our efforts to support this plan.

    Talk to you soon,

    Barack
