Let's keep the momentum going! Please sign up for this gathering right away!
Message from your host, Elizabeth W.: The Bush tax cuts are set to expire on January 1 and a host of DEEP spending cuts to domestic programs AND the military budget will take effect. House Republicans don't want to cut military spending, yet won't raise taxes on the wealthy. Congressman Brian Bilbray is one of many in Congress who signed the "Norquist Pledge" to NEVER raise taxes. And now, a group of "fix the debt" CEOs are arguing that President Obama must put Social Security and Medicare "on the table" to keep tax cuts for the middle class. Wealthy Americans have enjoyed MORE THAN A DECADE of the lowest tax rates in our history. They have amassed 40% of the nation's wealth while working people have struggled to stay solvent and our poor (especially seniors) have watched their safety net unravel before their eyes. Something HAS to give. And it CAN'T be the social safety net! Join us at Congressman Bilbray's district office as we urge him to DO THE RIGHT THING and vote to make the wealthy pay their share again, to protect the social safety net, and to preserve tax cuts for working families!
