Remember in November: Senators who voted 'yes' on the Bring Jobs Home Act

The Bring Jobs Home Act failed in the Senate last week. It would have eliminated tax breaks for corporations that move U.S. jobs overseas and given them tax incentives for moving them back.

A no-brainer, right?

Well, 42 U.S. senators voted against the bill. (Draw your own conclusion.)

You might want to send a thank-you email to the 56 senators who voted FOR the bill.

Here are the 56:
Dan Akaka (D-HI); Max Baucus (D-MT); Mark Begich (D-AK); Michael Bennet (D-CO); Jeff Bingaman (D-NM); Richard Blumenthal (D-CT); Barbara Boxer (D-CA); Sherrod Brown (D-OH); Scott Brown (R-MA); Maria Cantwell (D-WA); Ben Cardin (D-MD); Bob Carper (D-DE); Bob Casey (D-PA); Susan Collins (R-ME); Kent Conrad (D-ND); Christopher Coons (D-DE); Dick Durbin (D-IL); Dianne Feinstein (D-CA); Al Franken (D-MN); Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY); Kay Hagan (D-NC); Tom Harkin (D-IA); Dean Heller (R-NV); Dan Inouye (D-HI); Tim Johnson (D-SD); John Kerry (D-MA); Amy Klobuchar (D-MN); Mary Landrieu (D-LA); Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ); Patrick Leahy (D-VT); Carl Levin (D-MI); Joe Lieberman (ID-CT); Joe Manchin (D-WV); Claire McCaskill (D-MO); Bob Menendez (D-NJ); Jeff Merkley (D-OR); Barbara Mikulski (D-MD); Patty Murray (D-WA); Bill Nelson (D-FL); Ben Nelson (D-NE); Mark Pryor (D-AR); Jack Reed (D-RI); Harry Reid (D-NV); Jay Rockefeller (D-WV); Bernie Sanders (I-VT); Chuck Schumer (D-NY); Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH); Olympia Snowe (R-ME); Debbie Stabenow (D-MI); Jon Tester (D-MT); Mark Udall (D-CO); Tom Udall (D-NM); Mark Warner (D-VA); Jim Webb (D-VA); Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI); Ron Wyden (D-OR).
Send them an email here. Your message can be as simple as this:
Thank you for supporting the Bring Jobs Home Act and voting "YES" for cloture. It is common sense that we should only be rewarding companies that keep jobs here in America, not those that ship them overseas. 
Thank you again for taking a stand on this issue.
