Hurry now......

Today, President Obama stood on the Brent Spence Bridge that connects Ohio to Kentucky and spoke about how the American Jobs Act could help rebuild that bridge and thousands like it, and put construction workers and manufacturers back to work.

It has been exactly two weeks since President Obama proposed the American Jobs Act -- a fully paid-for plan made up of ideas that both parties have endorsed in the past and ought to be able to get behind now. A wide majority of Americans who have heard about the Jobs Act want to see it passed right away.

But Congress has yet to take any action on it whatsoever.

There's no excuse for any more delays. The President is out there bringing this plan straight to the American people. It's on us to help put the pressure on Congress.

Call your Republican members of Congress now and tell them that taking action on jobs is too urgent for them to drag their heels any longer.
