/Join us as we deliver a letter to Senators Kerry and Brown to protest a bad  
"grand bargain".  //Tell us in advance that you'll be there -- Register to  
attend [1]//!/

President Obama is bargaining 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.  

Read about apparent doublespeak by some Democrats [3] on the "fiscal  
cliff". 

Tell Senators Kerry and Brown to oppose any budget deal that does not respect  
the principles the people of Massachusetts voted for:

• 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!  *
