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 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 Massa¬chusetts. Reject the grand bargain – it’s a
turkey! 

 

Sponsored by the Budget for All Coalition, Massachusetts Peace Action, UJP
Afghanistan/Pakistan Task Force, Veterans for Peace, Mass. Alliance of HUD
Tenants, Democratic Socialists of America and Progressive Democrats of
America (list in formation).
