Governor Rell has proposed a Deficit Mitigation Plan that disproportionately hurts low-income children, parents, seniors and vulnerable people. Cuts totaling $116 million require legislative approval. The Governor has called the Legislature into Special Session December 15 to consider her proposal. The Legislature can act on her proposal, offer an alternative proposal, or gavel in and out of session of session taking no action.
As Wall Street recovers from the economic crisis that they created, Main Street continues to suffer. It is time to TAX THE RICH, SUPER RICH AND BIG CORPORATIONS and stop passing the pain of this economic crisis onto Main Street.
The deficit mitigation public hearing will be held on:
DATE: Wednesday, December 9, 2009
TIME: 2 p.m.
PLACE: Room 2C of the Legislative Office Building.
There will be an information forum before the public hearing lead by OPM Secretary Robert Genuario at 11 a.m. in Room 2C.
The cuts proposed by the Governor are deep, will hurt people, and are very real. It is critical that people take action by turning out to testify, and if this is not possible, to submit testimony in writing. IT IS TIME TO TAX THE RICH, CLOSE COPORATE LOOPHOLDS AND PROTECT MAIN STEET!
