Protest Planned at Rep. Herger’s Redding Office

What: Debt Crisis Protest Rally
When: Wednesday, August 10, from noon to 12:45 p.m.
Where: Rep. Wally Herger’s Office, 280 Hemsted Dr., Redding, CA 96002

From the rally’s organizers:

Republicans held the economy hostage to protect tax cuts for the wealthy, and Democrats opened the back door to cuts for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.2 Meanwhile, the jobs crisis keeps getting worse, and the stock market has dropped dramatically, further slowing recovery.3

But we can’t just stay home and yell at the TV or groan as we read the newspaper. With Congress home for the summer starting next week, we have to make the most of our opportunity to show them exactly how disgusted, frustrated, and angry we are. The media and members of Congress will be watching closely to see how voters are responding during the August congressional recess.

That’s why we’re joining with partners in the American Dream movement to hold “Jobs Not Cuts” events at district offices nationwide next Wednesday. Can you help make sure Rep. Wally Herger gets a wakeup call to start creating jobs and stop cutting our path to the American Dream?

When you sign up, you can indicate if you’re currently unemployed (or underemployed) and willing to share your story—it’s the stories from our community that will really help get Congress and the local media to pay attention. Then come out on Wednesday, August 10, at 12 p.m.  and wear your red, white, and blue clothes so we can show everyone what the American Dream movement is all about.

This is the perfect time for us to turn up the heat, and turn the focus to what it will take to rebuild the American Dream. We need to show Rep. Herger that we’re sick of the cuts, sick of political games, and sick of them ignoring the jobs crisis in our community. Can you join thousands of angry Americans on Wednesday, August 10, at hundreds of “Jobs Not Cuts” events at congressional offices nationwide?

    All quotes directly from the Democratic National Committee. I am not, nor have I ever been, wealthy. I received the tax cut. Everyone did. Calling it a tax cut for the wealthy is disingenuous and nothing more than leftist policy-speak. Lower taxes move the economy forward – government investment (more policy-speak) never has and never will. Republicans believe this wholeheartedly. Your ultra left and powerful federal government is the source of joblessness because it kills free enterprise, the mother of employment. I wish so-called liberals (a misnomer if ever there was one) would think for themselves after doing some historic research instead of parroting what fat cat Democrats write.
