SOS **** STOP THE CUTS! TAX THE RICH! SAVE THE PEOPLE! **** SOS

Sat. Mar. 19, 2 pm
Hyatt Regency Hotel
13th & L Streets, Sacramento
Republican Convention

CUIDO—Communities United in Defense of Olmstead—is planning a mass rally at the Republican Convention in Sacramento, to fiercely protest the Republican party’s depraved determination to balance the budget on the backs of elderly, disabled, and poor people, as well as students, workers, and everyone else in CA, except, of course, the corporations.

In U.S. states facing a budget shortfall, revenues from corporate taxes declined $2.5 billion in 2010, while corporate profits jumped 28% in 2010 (3rd quarter) to $1.6 trillion, the biggest one-year jump in history. Meanwhile, wages fell for all but the wealthiest Americans, whose income grew 5-fold. California Medi-Cal recipients face disastrous cuts in coverage, SSI is again being reduced, people with developmental disabilities face the loss of program funding, CalWORKS has been slashed, adult day health care is being all but eliminated, student fees are being raised far beyond young people’s ability to pay, tens of thousands face home mortgage foreclosures, and workers face pay cuts, furloughs, and unemployment.

This is obscene. If we instituted a progressive income tax, closed corporate tax loopholes, reformed Prop 13, and instituted an oil severance tax, we could humanely balance this budget.

Please join us in affirming that OUR LIVES ARE PRECIOUS! Sat. Mar. 19, 2 pm, at the Republican Convention, Hyatt Regency Hotel, 13th & L Streets, Sacramento. Tell everyone you know.

THINK EGYPT!
STOP THE CUTS!
TAX THE RICH!
SAVE THE PEOPLE!
