To: Rep. Matthew Cartwright (PA-8)
Hold Rep. Fitzpatrick Accountable
As your constituent, I am asking you to focus on creating jobs. I urge you to rethink your destructive votes to slash Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, your refusal ask millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share and your decision to waste months on the debt ceiling debate while 25 million Americans are still unemployed or underemployed.
I am outraged that you would rather play political games than put America back to work. Working Americans should not be asked to give up jobs, their retirement security and their health care while the rich and well-connected get tax cuts. To put our nation on a path to real economic recovery, Congress needs to invest in in putting Americans back to work.
Why is this important?
Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick ran for office on a jobs platform. But since getting elected, he has done nothing to address our jobs crisis. Instead, he voted to slash Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. And then, he wasted months on the manufactured debt ceiling crisis—forcing cuts that will kill jobs.
Rep. Fitzpatrick needs to be held accountable for his actions. So we’ve created an accountability petition we’re delivering by hand on Aug. 18. Will you add your name?
