======== TOMORROW! GOP EXTREMISTS: CEASE AND DESIST! =========================


It’s time to listen to what the voters keep saying about the Budget:

*Wednesday, October 16, 12 noon
Massachusetts GOP HQ
85 Merrimac St, Boston
/North Station "T" stop/*

/The /Budget for All!/ campaign calls for an emergency protest:/
•    *No to a Republican shutdown:* too many people get hurt
•    *No to defaulting on the debt:* even more of us will get hurt
•    *No to a bad Grand Bargain:* The president must stand firm against  
cuts to Social Security and other vital programs
•    *Yes to the */Budget for All!/* agenda* supported 3 to 1 by Mass.  
voters in last year’s election: Stop the cutbacks to programs people depend  
on; invest in job creation; tax corporations and upper incomes; cut military  
spending and bring the troops home from Afghanistan.

Gather at the offices of the Republican State Committee for a protest. We  
will deliver a *Cease & Desist Order* to the state Republican Party urging  
them to repudiate extremist leadership and tell them to raise the debt limit,  
stop the shutdown, stop sequestration, and support the /Budget for All!/  
platform. We will also call on President Obama to stand firm against GOP  
demands for cuts to Social Security, Medicare and other vital programs as  
part of a grand bargain.

Speakers will include federal employees who have been furloughed and others  
directly affected by the threatened shutdown.

Wednesday’s action is sponsored by the /Budget for All!/ Campaign with  
the support of the Mass Alliance of HUD Tenants, American Federation of  
Government Employees/Local 3258, MoveOn, Mass Fair Share, and allied labor,  
peace and social justice groups. It is one of more than 40 similar “Cease  
and Desist” actions nationwide called by USAction, the Coalition for Human  
Needs, Americans for Tax Fairness, American Federation of Government  
Employees, and other organizations.

In case a last-minute deal is reached which postpones budget decisions, we  
will still rally Wednesday to push Congress to pass the /Budget for  
All!/ agenda.

“Budget for All” is a network of over 80 groups, supported by several  
dozen elected officials, which placed a public policy question on the ballot  
last November. This event will highlight the only real solution to the budget  
crisis in Washington, based on that “Budget for All” public policy  
question, which won overwhelming support from voters in all 91 cities and  
towns across the whole state where it was on the ballot – and which  
reflects popular sentiment across the country.
