======== STOP THE "GRAND BARGAIN" -- IT'S A TURKEY! ==========================

*Monday, November 26, 2012, 12:00 pm*
*Downstairs from Sen. John Kerry's office, Cambridge St and New Chardon St,  
Boston*

President Obama and Republicans are bargaining to cut the deficit. But they  
shouldn’t balance the budget on the backs of ordinary people, who didn’t  
cause the problems. *Stop the fiscal swindle!  *


On November 7, the people of 91 Massachusetts cities and towns passed the  
/Budget for All [1]/by a 3 to 1 margin [2].  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

/Join tenants, community and faith leaders, peace activists, and the Grand  
Turkey at a rally! Bring appropriate props and costumes (turkeys, billionaire  
suits, musical instruments, signs and banners) -- and tell us in advance that  
you'll be there! Register to attend  
at /*/justicewithpeace.org/grand-turkey-register [3]/*/! //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 to r**eject  
the "grand bargain" – it’s a turkey!*/

Sponsored by the Budget for All Coalition [4], Massa­chusetts Peace Action  
[5], UJP [6] Afghanistan/Pakistan Task Force, Veterans for Peace [7], Mass.  
Alliance of HUD Tenants [8], and Progressive Democrats of America [9] (list  
in formation)
