Received this e-mail today from Alison Lundergan Grimes' (D. KY) U.S. Senate campaign:
Did you hear?

Today Mitch McConnell delivered yet another blow to working families and students by blocking legislation that would ease the burden of student loan debt. McConnell is so out of touch with the lives of real people that he dismissed legislation that would allow millions to refinance their student loans at a lower rate as a "talking point."

Mitch McConnell and Washington just don't get it. Easing the burden of student loan debt isn't a "talking point;" it's a critical step toward helping working families build a future and put food on the table.

Today we're asking you to stand with our campaign.

Sign the petition and tell Mitch McConnell to support this critical piece of legislation. After 30 years of failed leadership and obstruction, it's time to act.

McConnell's move today is further evidence of where he places his loyalties: rather than standing with working families, McConnell continues to stand with the wealthy Washington and Wall Street lobbyists that bankroll his campaign.

Mitch McConnell has been in Washington too long to understand that helping families with the burden of student loan debt isn't about playing politics: it's about positively impacting the lives of real people. It's about doing what's right to strengthen the middle class and make sure everyone gets a fair shot – not just the super wealthy.

Enough is enough.

Add your name now and tell McConnell to end the obstruction and pass this bill.

Thanks for standing with us,

Team Switch

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.
