Our lives are not a game show. Let's not play "make a deal."

About This Event:
"Cliff" is a scary word, and across-the-board cuts will, undeniably, be painful. But if we slash the social safety net, and continue to give unsustainably low tax rates to the richest americans (lower than in the 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's), we're jumping, in slow motion, into a hole that's far deeper than any "cliff."
It's time to legislate and plan for the good of average Americans, not the convenience of the super-rich. This rally is outside the site of our local Chamber of Commerce-type organization, the Allegheny Conference. They get a lot of PR for doing charity type work with one hand. But if they back the destabilization of the social safety net for the sake of their big backers, they must be held accountable.
This is a joint event with OnePittsburgh (and the groups supporting OnePittsburgh).
Assemble 2:15, rally in full swing at 2:30.
