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

======== WE’RE PAYING OUR TAXES...
         WHY ARE VITAL SERVICES BEING CUT, AND
         WHY IS THE PRESIDENT PROPOSING CUTS TO SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE? 

Budget cutters in Washington have already slashed Meals on Wheels, Head  
Start, Housing, Education, Fuel Assistance, Unemployment, Health Programs,  
AIDS Housing, and family violence prevention. Now the President wants to cut  
even more vital programs.

*But there is an alternative.*

-------- 1. 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. The  
CEOs of Bank of America, Citibank, and Verizon are key members of Fix the  
Debt, a corporate group pushing for big cuts in critical public programs and  
even lower corporate taxes.

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

The US war budget is greater than the military spending of the next 10  
largest military 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, TO SAY:
         STOP THE CUTS! ======================================================
