"Come Together" campaign buys newspapers ads

It's more than just Starbucks' cups.

Starbucks and Patch, AOL’s network of hyper-local websites, announced that they will take out full-page ads in the Washington Post and New York Times and advertise on Websites to continue its campaign to urge action on the looming fiscal crisis.

On Wednesday, the companies launched the “Come Together” initiative, which encourages Starbucks stores to write “Come Together” on coffee cups at approximately 120 Washington, D.C.-area stores on Thursday and Friday.

"As the clock ticks, I am hopeful the ‘Come Together’ campaign will spur our nation’s lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to come together and begin a serious dialogue focused on a meaningful solution," said Maya MacGuineas, President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and head of the Campaign to Fix the Debt.
