Please RSVP to participate in this critical discussion:


Everything is going up. Foreclosures. Oil prices. Bankruptcies. Medical
costs. Outsourcing. College tuition. Poverty. Except for the dollar.
That's going down.

As our struggling economy teeters toward recession, what urgent action
is needed to cushion the blow to working families? What long-term
investments must we make to build a vibrant economy that works for everyone?

On Wednesday, January 16th, join us on Capitol Hill for a critical town
hall meeting, exploring what we must do to get our economy back on track.

WHAT: Capitol Hill Town Hall Meeting on the Economy and Progressive Remedies

WHO: U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Committee on
Financial Services
U.S. Reps. Barbara Lee and Lynn Woolsey, Co-Chairs of the Congressional
Progressive Caucus
Robert Kuttner, author of The Squandering of America and co-founder and
co-editor of The American Prospect
Roger Hickey, co-director, Campaign for America's Future

Co-hosted by the Campaign for America's Future and The American Prospect

WHERE: Cannon Caucus Room, 345 Cannon House Office Building
Very close to the Capitol South metro stop (blue / orange line)

WHEN: Wednesday, January 16, 2008 from 2:00 - 4:00 PM

(Light refreshments will be served.)

Rep. Frank said the recent poor jobs report "should be a wake-up call
that a public policy response is needed to help the economy recover more
quickly and to help average Americans deal with any downturn." And
Robert Kuttner's latest book offers a new model of managed capitalism
that can deliver security and opportunity, and rekindle democracy as a
check on concentrated wealth.

In what is sure to be a remarkable political year, it is up to us to
push the parameters of national debate, make room for bold ideas that
remedy the failures of the conservative era, and establish a broad
mandate for lasting change. And we can only shape the debate with your
help, your participation and your voice.

We hope to see you on Capitol Hill for this special event, so together,
we can take our country back.
