Dear Leader Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid:

We have a jobs crisis in America. Unfortunately, the debt limit deal that was signed into law yesterday goes straight in the wrong direction. We are writing to urge you to ensure that we immediately change course.

Specifically, we ask that you only appoint members to the “super committee” who agree in advance they will only support a package that includes:

1. New revenues that exceed any additional cuts
2. A job creation package

If these components are not included, your appointees should agree to oppose the package, even if the result will be that the so-called “trigger” cuts go into effect. It’s time to hold the line.
