Plouffe Tells Lawmakers Democrats Have Momentum

White House adviser David Plouffe sent a "fiery memo" to House and Senate Democrats urging them to use the August recess to echo President Obama's message to middle-class families, Politico reports.

Wrote Plouffe: "The President and Democrats in Congress move into the August recess with clear momentum on the question of who to trust on taxes and, more broadly, whose economic agenda will benefit the middle class. Over the coming weeks, there is an opportunity to build on this momentum and shape the legislative agenda this fall by highlighting the choice Congress faces at this make-or-break moment for the middle class."

He concluded: "The choice is clear. The stakes are high,. And the message is simple and effective. The President will continue to make sure middle class families know he is on their side by fighting for legislation that grows the economy from the middle out, not the top down. We hope you will echo that throughout the country in August."
