serious deadline

Alessandro --

The critical September 30th fundraising deadline is the primary focus of the campaign for the next week and a half, but two things happened this week that you ought to be proud of:

-- President Obama laid out the Buffett Rule: a proposal to help bring down our deficit by asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share in taxes. It's a position that more than 70 percent of Americans agree with, but something that too many millionaire politicians don't have the guts to propose.

-- "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" officially became history. It's done. That's something that we'll tell our kids about -- and this President helped finally do it.

What happens in the next week and a half is up to you.

The deadline we face in nine days is serious. It's the official FEC filing deadline, and it's not arbitrary -- it's built into our campaign's budget plan. It will determine what kinds of resources we can commit to which states as we expand our ground game.

Right now, you have a chance to affect what that picture looks like. Pitch in $5 or more to help get where we need to go by the deadline:

Our President is out there doing great things. And right now, it's on us to get his back by showing the strength of the organization behind him.

P.S. -- As an added bonus, every donation you make before September 30th will automatically enter you to win dinner with President Obama. Take ownership of this campaign today, and you could find yourself across the table from the President.
