This Wednesday, Republicans in Congress will continue to hold America's economy hostage, simply in order to extend the Bush tax cuts for the rich.

What on earth is the GOP thinking?!?! Our economy is still struggling to recover, and the GOP's refusal to compromise one bit means that uncertainty over the end-of-the-year "jobs cliff" is growing.1

Senate Democrats have called for a simple solution to the standoff: Everyone already agrees that the middle-class tax cuts should be extended, so why not vote to extend them now? They've called for a vote this Wednesday. But Senate Republicans are saying they'll block passage of the sensible tax cut extension unless the super-rich get extra tax breaks as well.2 If Democrats present a united front, and refuse to consider extending tax breaks for the wealthy, the tax cuts will automatically expire at the end of the year.

Most Senate Democrats are standing strong, but they're getting pressured from all sides. That's why it's so essential that they hear from MoveOn members today. Can you call Senators Jim Webb and Mark Warner and make sure they are voting to end the tax cuts for the rich?

We need to move quickly—this vote is just 48 hours away. Democratic senators like Webb and Warner need to hear from hundreds of their constituents telling them to stand firm against tax breaks for the rich and thanking them for doing so.

Call Sens. Webb and Warner today and ask them to vote for tax cuts for the middle class and not millionaires.

Here's where to call: If your in Virginia
