It's clear that 2012 election didn't usher in a less-extreme Republican Party. As the GOP prepares to vote on the Ryan budget, which gives the wealthiest Americans a massive tax cut at the expense of the middle class, it's more important than ever that we stand with President Obama and Democrats to protect our progress and move forward.
Check out this email our chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, just sent to Democrats nationwide, then add your name to show your support.
This week, my Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives will vote to give the wealthiest Americans a massive tax cut paid for by seniors, middle-class families, and students.
This is a wake-up call. Last year's election didn't make the Republicans' policies any less extreme, and it didn't make them any less eager to enact them.
I'm standing with President Obama and my Democratic colleagues to make good on the progress Americans voted for this past November, and I need you to stand with us.
We've accomplished a tremendous amount together over the past four years, but it couldn't be more clear that our opponents will roll all of that progress back if we give them a chance. Let's not give them one.
Let President Obama and other Democrats know that you're with us:
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Democratic National Committee
P.S. -- Knowing who we can count on is important. If you're one of those people, please let us know.
