Our livelihoods are not bargaining chips, and the ‘Grand Bargain’ is not necessary.

Allowing the Bush-era tax cuts to expire for the wealthiest 2% will raise the revenue we need now. Changes to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare are too complicated for a rushed deal and a compromise that puts our future on the line isn’t the right solution.

Join JwJ, the Oregon AFL-CIO, the Northwest Oregon Labor Council, Oregon action and Working America  in a candlelight vigil to tell Senator Ron Wyden to end the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2%, No cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, no cuts to vital services for low income people. Call Senator Wyden and tell him to oppose cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and to end the Bus tax cuts for the richest 2%, 503-326-7525 or 202-224-5244.

 Stand together with community and union members, students and retirees.
