My son is a champion dawdler. When I'm trying to get out the door for something important, putting on his coat can become a 15 minute dance. So I've become an expert dawdler-stopper.

Now, when a four-year-old dawdles it's mildly frustrating. But when Congress dawdles while they should be creating jobs, it's simply unacceptable.

Twenty-five million Americans are searching for full-time work.[1] Congressional inaction, i.e. dawdling, is NOT ok. It's time for parents across the country to unite and stop Congressional dawdling. We've got to get the American Jobs Act passed ASAP.

If anyone can motivate a dawdler, it's a parent. That's why a donor has already stepped up with $5,000 to increase the power of MomsRising members who contribute in the next 48 hours.

This means your contribution of $15 or more will be supercharged and will enable MomsRising to take our jobs campaign full force into the Senate battle. We will launch a virtual storm on Congress to end dawdling.  We will come at them from every side: On the ground in DC, through local media outlets, Twitter and Facebook campaigns, family story deliveries, and a crescendo of email and phone calls. We won't stop until Congress takes action on the American Jobs Act.

Chip in $15 today:

Our nation is facing a national jobs crisis, but together, we can find solutions.  Start by pitching in to our jobs campaign.  Today's a great day to donate because if you give a gift today, it will be supercharged:

$15 becomes $30…
$25 becomes $50…
$50 becomes $100…
$100 becomes $200, and so on….

Will you donate now and double your power in the fight against Congressional dawdling? Please chip in today:

Twenty-five million people are looking for full-time work. Together we can make sure that Congress hears from real moms and families.  Congress needs to understand that inaction is not a viable option.  We know every parent is professional dawdler-buster and that together we can help move our nation forward.

Together, we are a powerful voice for families!

P.S. Please pass this message along to your friends and family by forwarding this email now, so they too can take advantage of this great opportunity and help us push the American Jobs Act through!  When times are tough, moms and dads get the job done!
