Bankster Alert: Join the Nurses for a Rally at the Treasury Nov. 3
"Heal America, Tax Wall Street!"
WASHINGTON - National Nurses United and the AFL-CIO have announced a rally in D.C. Nov. 3rd. As the leaders of the G-20 meet in France, nurses and their allies on both sides of the Atlantic will be rallying to send a message to global economic leaders: it's time for Wall Street to pay for the damage it has caused our communities.
When reckless Wall Street trading crashed the global economy, putting 8 million Americans out of work and tanking state and federal tax revenues, American taxpayers bailed out the big banks to the tune of $4.7 trillion. That is trillion with a “T”.
Now we are being asked to put up with astronomical unemployment, cuts in pay, cuts in health care, cuts in Medicare and Social Security, larger class sizes and smaller pensions.
Enough is enough! We have done our part, now it’s time for Wall Street to do its part – through a sales tax on each Wall Street trade called a financial transaction tax.
RALLY AT LAFAYETTE SQUARE 11:30 P.M. NOVEMBER 3RD.
MARCH TO THE U.S. TREASURY DEPARTMENT
LOBBY ON CAPITOL HILL 3:00 PM
