Event Cancelled due to the Bombings:
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.
Cancelled - Join us on Tax Day, Tuesday, April 16, to say:
Stop the Cuts!
When: 11 am
Tip O’Neill Federal Building, 10 Causeway Street, Boston – North Station (Green Line) Regional Headquarters for the Social Security Administration and Housing & Urban Development
We’ll also visit Bank of America, Citibank, and Verizon at 6 Bowdoin Square, Boston.
This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled, perhaps on or about Nov 13.
