Budget Showdown

Friday, November 9, 2012
Pritzker Park (State and Van Buren), Chicago, IL

Following the economic crash engineered by Wall Street, a devotion to corporate welfare, and historically low rates of taxes on the very rich, we face a manufactured budget crisis (sometimes called "the fiscal cliff") at the end of the year. And now we are being told that we need to pay for it through cuts to education, health care, and social services.

We've seen this before. Time after time, our elected officials face a choice: either make everyone (including big business and the very rich) pay their fair share of taxes, or cut programs that support working families, the elderly, and the poor. And time after time, the interests of the wealthy few have triumphed over the needs of the many.

On November 9, join IIRON, SOUL, Northside POWER, the Lakeview Action Coalition, the Jane Addams Senior Caucus, and National Nurses United as we say: Enough is enough! It's time to stop unnecessary budget cuts and make corporations and the rich pay their fair share!

Demand that our elected officials keep their hands off of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid!

Fight back against budget cuts set to begin at the end of the year!

Demand an end to the Bush Tax Cuts for the top 2%!
