WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Statement by SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger on Barack Obama's prime-time special:
"We're at a defining moment. In six days, voters will head to the polls to choose a president who will be responsible for rescuing our nation from the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression.
"Tonight, Barack Obama described the common sense solutions working families need right now--tax cuts for the middle class, affordable healthcare for all, a real solution to our housing crisis, and a secure retirement for all workers.
"With Barack Obama's middle class economic solution, Americans can stop worrying about how they're going to pay the bills and put food on the table each night and instead focus on raising their families.
"There's a lot at stake this election--the American Dream hangs in the balance. That's why nurses, janitors, child care providers, and other SEIU members continue to mobilize their co-workers and communities to elect a president who will finally win healthcare for all and rebuild the middle class."
With 2 million members, SEIU is the fastest-growing union in the Americas. Focused on uniting workers in three sectors to improve their lives and the services they provide, SEIU is the largest health care union, including hospitals, nursing homes, and home care; the largest property services union, including building cleaning and security; and the second largest public employee union.
