Many of our supporters have sent their letters to these politicians asking them to end their partnership with the special interests. We are sending a clear message to Washington and we need your help to make it even stronger.
Please tell Sen. Obama and Sen. Edwards that Americans support Wal-Mart.
It’s time these Senators heard from working families who understand the positive impact that Wal-Mart makes.
Speak out today. Tell Senators Obama and Edwards that Wal-Mart stands for working families.
These politicians should know what Wal-Mart means to their communities.
In Sen. Obama's home state of Illinois, just last year, Wal-Mart spent more than $12 billion with more than 2,700 businesses, generated more than $420 million in tax revenue, and made more than $8.4 million in charitable donations. More than 45,000 people in Illinois work at Wal-Mart, and at new Wal-Mart stores in Evergreen Park and the West Side of Chicago, more than 40,000 people applied for 750 jobs.
Nevertheless, Senators Obama and Edwards are working with special-interest, union-funded groups who are attacking Wal-Mart at the expense of America's working families.
Send them a message that attacking Wal-Mart is not a solution to anything.
Make your voice heard now.
Follow the link to send a letter to Sen. Obama and Sen. Edwards. Tell them that siding with the Washington special interests is not the way to help working families.
Thank you in advance for your support.
