STOP ATTACKS ON MINNESOTA WORKING PEOPLE
AND OUR PUBLIC SERVICES!
Billionaires like the Koch brothers have secretly funded and scripted the new Tea Party leaders to aggressively push through a shocking corporate agenda.
PROTEST at the MN Capitol with Your Signs!
Mon. March 21, 1-3pm, rm. 123 & Hallways
(SF812 is at the end of the agenda. The hearing may reconvene at 6 pm. Call 612-709-9228 to hear if protesting resumes at 6pm)
The TEA PARTY PLAYBOOK is exposed in their proposals:
Eliminate health insurance for public workers! (MN SF805)
Undercutting collective bargaining!!!
6% pay cut for all public employees + 3% pension cuts (SF 812)
Eliminate 15% of state jobs! (HF 4). Destroying jobs is NOT job creation! MN is already the 10th leanest state.
Contract state jobs to for–profit corporations: (MN HF 192).
Cut higher education 16%, ETC.
The richest 400 billionaires have more wealth than half the US population combined (that’s 155,000,000 people!)
They are profiting from our sacrifice and their tax havens. They DO NOT PAY THEIR SHARE OF STATE TAXES. RAISE TAXES ON THE VERY RICH!
The PUBLIC SHOULDN’T PAY for the economic crisis caused by super-rich Wall St. gamblers!
Cargill alone could bailout MN!
