Band of Rebels Unveils Plan for Fair Deficit Reduction!
What: Rally to End Tax Avoidance and Corporate Welfare!
Where: Kenneth B. Keating Federal Building, 100 State Street, Rochester, NY
When: Monday, January 14, 2013, 12 -1 PM, rain or shine
Why: Sick of hearing that we need to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to reduce the deficit and worried about your future security or the futures of your children and grandchildren? The Band of Rebels has a plan that would make a real dent in the deficit based on fairly taxing corporate wealth and Wall Street transactions, cutting corporate welfare and cutting the bloated military budget, instead of balancing the budget on the backs of the poor and middle-class. Unfortunately, the fight is far from over and you are needed to fight the deficit hawks in both parties and protect the hard-earned benefits you worked for throughout your work life!
Powerful lobbying groups, especially the 63 wealthy CEO’s of the “Fix the Debt” coalition, continue to cycle through Washington pushing their view that Congress must cut the programs millions of poor and middle class Americans rely on, and grant corporate America even more favorable tax cuts and subsidies. They have already gained another $46 billion in tax and subsidy deals as a result of their efforts! Not surprisingly, these CEOs include infamous bailout beneficiary Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs and other bankers and perennial tax avoiders like Jeffery Immelt of GE.
Help show our representatives in Congress that you will continue to hold their feet to the fire to protect the programs millions of Americans depend on!
