Democrats in Congress are trying to pass an emergency package of aid for states, to save the jobs of hundreds of thousands of teachers, police officers, firefighters across the country.
But Republicans are standing in the way. Minority Leader John Boehner is calling the bill a "payoff" to "special interests" and attacking every Democrat who is fighting for these jobs.
Please stand with Democrats in Congress who are rushing back to Washington to make sure these jobs get saved.
House Democrats --
I'm standing with you in the fight to protect the jobs of hundreds of thousands of teachers, police officers, and firefighters.
Thank you for standing up to Republican attacks. I've got your back.
