We can make an end run around House Republican leaders

Eric Cantor looks angry as President Obama smilesHouse Republican leaders are refusing to hold a vote on ending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%. However, if 218 members of the House of Representatives sign what is known as a "discharge petition," then the House will have to hold such a vote, no matter what Republican leaders think.

Already, 178 members signed the petition, so we only need 40 more. Please, email your member of the House of Representatives, telling him or her to sign the discharge petition, or thanking him or her for signing it.
