RALLY JUNE 30: Tax the Richest 2% to Prevent Reckless Cuts to Public Services
The Republican all-cuts budget is the wrong choice for Minnesota.
It protects the richest 2% and large corporations at the expense of everybody else...
Working Minnesotans: It will slash 30,000 public and private sector jobs when 200,000 Minnesotans are already unemployed.
The Middle Class: It will increase property taxes on homeowners, renters and small businesses by more than $1.4 billion over the next four years.
Safe Communities: It will reduce supervision for offenders on probation, and cut support for battered women and crime victims.
Students: It will slash public colleges and universities by $411 million when more students need an affordable education to succeed in a tough economy.
Seniors: It will hit seniors hard with higher property taxes, and slash their critical transit services and health care.
The Sick, Disabled and Vulnerable: It will take away health care from 140,000 Minnesotans and eliminate crisis support for 20,000 disabled adults in poverty.Call your state legislators: 1-855-508-6472Free call: just punch in your zip code to speak to your legislator.

A total government shutdown is a horrendous and expensive experience. It’s an emergency that calls for fightingback and determination to WIN our right to not pay for the mistakes of Wall Street. This is an assault on our rights and livelihoods and our democracy. What happened to respect for workers?
A pink slip after you’ve worked as a proud Minnesota public employee is overwhelming. Whatta slap!
What kind of state have we become?
Now is the time for solidarity. Let’s teach the unkind GOP and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) what democracy, decency and generosity look like. Please pick up your trash!
Tell your families, neighbors and friends. We must end this shutdown quickly, so come! Support Minnesota workers and defend those who will be hurt by cuts.
Please bring a flashlight if you can.Remember: All State Parks CLOSED4th of July weekend.
Proudly brought to you by Ad hoc Citizens’ Committee to
STOP THE SHUT DOWN. Join in!
