“This will be the largest economic campaign we have ever run,” Justin Ruben, MoveOn’s Executive Director said in an interview with The Huffington Post. “The goal here is to really change the debate and refocus it on the stuff that is necessary to create jobs and make the economy work for regular people … It is unreal that with widespread misery across the country, Washington is focused on closing the deficit and giving tax breaks to millionaires.” – Sam Stein, Huffington Post
The video was marketing, as Stein explains in his piece.
What it’s selling is something big, at least Van Jones and MoveOn.org hopes it will be. The date to mark is June 23rd.
UPDATE: T4H has a post up “In the News” on the Obama administration’s ridiculous refusal to endorse a jobs bill. That’s right, a Democratic administration thinks it’s too expensive to focus on jobs.
