I really enjoyed listening to Rahm's speech. But he's a mayor now, so he can't use four-letter words. But I'm no mayor. So I've got one for you: Vote.
Let's keep fighting for a president who's never stopped fighting for us! Go online. Find your local campaign office. Call your friends. Call some strangers. Volunteer. That's how we're going to win this thing.
I'm volunteering again now because my friend Matt got a job at a Detroit car company that still exists, and Lauren can get the prescription she needs. I'm volunteering because Josiah is back from Iraq, Chris is finishing college on the GI Bill, and three weeks ago, my buddy Kevin's boyfriend was able to watch him graduate from Marine Corps training. That's change! And we can't turn back now.
I volunteered in Iowa in 2007 because, like you, I had friends serving in Iraq, friends who were looking for jobs, others who couldn't go to the doctor because they couldn't afford it. I felt that had to change. So I knocked on doors. I registered voters.
Now, President Obama paid off his own student loans not too long ago. He remembers what it is like. He said making it easier to go to college and get technical training is exactly how we grow our economy, create jobs and out-compete the world. So he stood firm. And that tuition tax credit is still here. But, if we don't register, if we don't vote, it won't be.
A few months later, President Obama fought to keep taxes from going up on middle-class families. Our Republican friends said, Sure you can do that. But one of the things they were willing to trade is a little item called the college tax credit, which today is saving students up to $10,000 over four years of school.
Five minutes later, President Obama walked in, sleeves rolled up. He said to us, 'This is not over. We're gonna keep fighting. I'm gonna keep fighting. I need young people to keep fighting.' That's why we're here!
I was in a small office on the second floor of the West Wing with eight other staffers. We'd worked our hearts out and cared deeply about what this would mean for other young people. There wasn't a dry eye in the room, tears of joy for the history that was made, but also tears of sadness because some American dreams would still be deferred.
One of the most special days was a Saturday in 2010. The Senate repealed 'don't ask, don't tell,' so anyone can serve the country they love, regardless of whom they love. But that same day, the Dream Act was blocked. That bill would give immigrant children...who've never pledged allegiance to any flag but ours...the chance to earn their citizenship. Simple. Important.
I started volunteering for Barack Obama in 2007. But nothing compares to what I saw behind the scenes at the White House, when I had the honor to serve for two years as President Obama's liaison to young Americans. I saw how hard he fights for us.
I've worked on a lot of fun movies, but my favorite job was having a boss who gave the order to take out bin Laden and who's cool with all of us getting gay-married. Thank you, invisible man in the chair, for that, and for giving my friends access to affordable health insurance and doubling funding for the Pell grant.
