Subject: Thanks for speaking out against corporate tax dodging
Thank you. Your name has been added to the petition, which will build pressure on Immelt to step down from the President's Jobs Council and bring national attention to corporate tax dodging. Help spread the word by forwarding our original email or posting this campaign on your social networks.
Another great way to make sure Immelt feels a lot of heat on this issue is to spread the word to your friends and family so they know what's going on. You can just forward the sample letter below.
Spreading the word is critical, but please only pass this message along to those who know you -- spam hurts our campaign.
Thanks for all you do.

Subject: Biggest corporate tax dodger - unbelievable
It's crazy, but the New York Times reported that while GE made over $14.2 billion in profits last year, they didn't pay any federal tax. In fact, they got $3.2 billion in taxes back, from all of us taxpayers. I can tell you, as I sit down to do my taxes now, that really had me steamed.
And the tax loopholes that GE spent millions lobbying for keep their profits and jobs overseas, while they cut health care and retirement benefits for American workers. That had me absolutely sick.
The worst part is, GE's CEO, Jeff Immelt, was appointed chair of President Obama's Jobs Council—to advise the President on things like American workers and corporate tax. It's just perverse.
That's why I signed a petition to get America's Chief Executive Tax Dodger, Jeff Immelt, off the President's Job Council. Can you join me at the link below?
