UJP: On Tax Day, say: Stop the Cuts and Redirect Pentagon Spending! p, h1,  
h2, h3 {font-family: Trebuchet MS, Helvetica, Arial; }
======== ON TAX DAY, SAY: STOP THE CUTS AND REDIRECT PENTAGON SPENDING! ======

======== WE’RE PAYING OUR TAXES...
         WHY ARE VITAL SERVICES BEING CUT? ===================================

Budget cutters in Washington have slashed Meals on Wheels, Head Start,  
Section 8, Fuel Assistance, Unemployment, Health Programs, AIDS Housing,  
family violence prevention, substance abuse prevention... and they want to  
cut more.

*But there is an alternative.*

-------- END CORPORATE TAX BREAKS! -------------------------------------------

Very high income people and giant corporations get hundreds of billions of  
dollars a year in tax breaks through loopholes and offshore tax shelters.  
Bank of America’s CEO is a key member of Fix the Debt, a corporate group  
supported by Walmart pushing for big cuts in critical programs and even lower  
corporate taxes 

*And*

-------- REDIRECT PENTAGON SPENDING TO JOBS AND VITAL PROGRAMS FOR PEOPLE! ---

Pentagon spending is greater than the war spending of the next 10 biggest  
powers combined. Much of it funds destructive wars like Iraq, wasteful  
weapons systems like the F-35, and keeping us in Afghanistan for years to  
come.

======== JOIN US ON TAX DAY, TUESDAY, APRIL 16, AND SAY:
         STOP THE CUTS! ======================================================

*When: 11 am
Where: Kit Clark Senior Center*, 1500 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester - Across  
from the Fields Corner T stop on the Red Line
Kit Clark Senior Center serves hundreds of elderly residents of Boston.

We’ll also visit the *Bank of America* at 1440 Dorchester Ave and say:

======== CORPORATIONS, PAY UP!
         INVEST IN JOBS AND REDIRECT PENTAGON SPENDING! ======================

Sponsoring organizations: Budget for All Coalition, Mass. Alliance of HUD  
Tenants, Mass. Peace Action, American Friends Service Committee, Boston

Last year Massachusetts voted 3 to 1 to: *Create jobs, Save vital services,

Pentagon*.
