THE AMERICAN FEDERATION OF STATE, COUNTY, AND MUNICIPAL EMPLOYEES--OR AFSCME--IS PRAISING THE FINAL CONGRESSIONAL PASSAGE OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S ECONOMIC-RECOVERY PROGRAM.  ACCORDING TO AFSCME PRESIDENT, GERALD MCENTEE, THE UNION LED THE FIGHT FOR THE "AMERICAN RECOVERY AND REINVESTMENT ACT"--BY GENERATING MORE THAN 40-THOUSAND PHONE CALLS, HAND-WRITTEN LETTERS, AND E-MAILS TO KEY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, OVER THE PAST TWO WEEKS...

(MCENTEE):
"
MORE THAN A YEAR AGO, AFSCME CALLED FOR A PLAN TO CREATE JOBS AND GIVE AID TO STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS.  NOW, THANKS TO THE BOLD LEADERSHIP OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA AND CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS, HELP IS ON THE WAY.  PASSAGE OF THE 'AMERICAN RECOVERY AND REINVESTMENT ACT' IS A MAJOR VICTORY, FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.  AMERICANS VOTED FOR A CHANGE OF DIRECTION, IN NOVEMBER--RATHER THAN MORE OF THE SAME FAILED ECONOMIC POLICIES THAT RAN OUR ECONOMY INTO THE DITCH.  PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS HAVE BEGUN TO DELIVER.  THIS RAPID PASSAGE OF THE OBAMA JOBS PLAN IS A MAJOR, HISTORIC VICTORY--AND HAS REDEFINED WHAT IS POSSIBLE IN WASHINGTON.
