YOU DID IT!!! A MAJOR VICTORY FOR EDUCATORS, STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND OUR NATION!!!
On August 10, the House passed the education jobs/FMAP bill by a vote of 247-161. See how your Representative voted on this critical vote and how your Senators voted last week. Reports indicate the President could sign the bill as early as this evening! New figures from the U.S.Department of Education estimate that some 161,000 educators who had received pink slips will be heading back to school this fall as a result of this win.
Thank your Representative and Senators who supported the bill and express your disappointment to those who did not. See how many jobs will be saved in your state. This victory could not have been achieved without the help of activists around the country. Together, you sent over 300,000 e-mails and made over 100,000 phone calls to Congress.
