office, Cambridge St and New Chardon St, Boston*
President Obama wants to bargain with Republicans to cut the deficit. But he  
shouldn’t balance the budget on the backs of ordinary people, who didn’t  
cause the problems.

On November 7, the people of 91 Massachusetts cities and towns passed the  
/Budget for All [2]/by a 3 to 1 margin.  It calls for budget principles that  
will put people back to work, fight climate change, rebuild our economy for  
the future, and stop endless wars, while balancing the budget:

• Stop the cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment  
benefits, housing, food and veterans’ benefits

• Invest in jobs in manufacturing, schools, housing, renewable energy,  
transportation and public services

• Close corporate tax loopholes, end offshore tax havens, and raise taxes  
on incomes over $250,000

• Reduce the military budget, end the war in Afghanistan and bring troops  
home safely now

We will gather in front of Senator Kerry’s office to deliver a letter, and  
then march to Senator Brown’s nearby office.  Tell our elected officials  
that the people have spoken.  Don’t listen to the greedy and their  
lobbyists – listen to the people of Massa­chusetts.  *Reject the grand  
bargain – it’s a turkey!*

Sponsored by the Budget for All Coalition [3], Massa­chusetts Peace Action

Alliance of HUD Tenants [7], and Progressive Democrats of America [8] (list
