Received this e-mail from Senator Kay Hagan (D. NC) today with a message to her colleagues returning from the government shutdown:
Now that the lights are back on in Washington, D.C., the next step is clear: Focus on creating jobs and growing our economy.

My colleagues in the U.S. Senate and I supported a bipartisan solution to end the government shutdown and force the out-of-touch “chaos caucus” in the House to sit down to work out a long-term budget. Now we have to stay focused.

Budgets reflect our priorities as a nation. I want to make sure that North Carolinians’ concerns -- creating jobs, investing in education and small businesses, and protecting programs for veterans and seniors -- are front and center.

I need you standing with me as we move forward to put together a real budget. Sign our open letter to the House urging them to stay focused on jobs and the economy in the upcoming budget negotiations:

Lurching from economic crisis to fiscal cliff to economic crisis is not a responsible way to govern. That’s not what North Carolinians expect of Washington -- and it has to end now.

Thank you for standing with me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
