OUR DC Plans More Protests
Politics

 

This press release comes to us from OUR DC:

With no end to the jobs crisis in sight and fed up after a debt deal that will lead to job losses, unemployed District workers and community members will begin a series of August protests and other actions designed to remove Representatives Frank Wolf and Eric Cantor from office unless they adopt sound policies that creates jobs for middle class families. OurDC focuses on both Virginia Representatives in part because the District of Columbia has no voting representative in Congress.

 

While 30 million Americans are looking for work, corporate profits are at a record high and Wall Street banks have made over $100 billion in profits since taxpayers bailed them out. OurDC wants Congress to end tax breaks and loopholes for CEOs, hedge fund managers and others, and make big, profitable corporations pay their fair share of taxes so America can invest in creating quality jobs here at home.
