The fiscal cliff negotiations are coming down to the wire in Washington, D.C. – which means our country faces a choice of protecting working families and the middle class, or going over the "cliff" in order to save tax breaks for the very wealthy. On Monday, Congress will likely be voting on several proposals to protect middle class families – which means now is the time for us to make our voices heard in public and in the media.
Please join us on Monday, December 31 at 2 PM in Raleigh near the Fayetteville Street New Year's Eve acorn drop site. We will be gathering to urge Congress to "not drop the ball on the middle class" in order to protect tax breaks for the wealthy. This will be a public media event (so turnout will be important). It will also be an opportunity to make calls to Congress and to educate the public about the choices facing our country.
“Don’t Drop the Ball on the Middle Class”
What: Triangle residents will meet on Fayetteville Street near the suspended acorn to urge members of Congress not to “drop the ball” on the middle class, and to encourage citizens to contact their Congressional members on the day of several critical votes in Washington, D.C.
Where: Near the acorn drop site on Fayetteville Street, Raleigh, NC (by the BB&T Building, 434 Fayetteville Street)
When: Meet at 2 PM on Monday, December 31.
Why: To urge members of Congress to work together to protect the middle class and working people while ending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
