Greedy Corporations and the Wealthy Fatten Themselves on the Rest of Us -- Join "We Are One" Rallies to Stop the Freeloaders
The rich have been sucking the economic lifeblood from the middle class for decades. Today, "We Are One" rallies are happening all over the country.

April 3, 2011 |


The nations greedy corporations and insatiable wealthy are fattening themselves on workers. Theres no trickle down. Its the opposite; the rich have been sucking the economic lifeblood from the middle class for decades.

When reckless Wall Street banksters get taxpayer-funded bailouts, billionaires get tax breaks and gigantic corporations like GE and Bank of America pay absolutely no federal income taxes, theyre getting for free the very public services that enable them to make massive profits in this country the courts, the roads, the trade regulators, the patent enforcement.

The middle class doesnt get those big time special deals and loopholes. Workers pay their taxes. As a result, its workers footing the bill for the government services that enrich the rich. Greedy corporations, their CEOs and the right-wing politicians they buy with tens of millions in campaign cash are freeloaders.

Its time workers stood up to the freeloaders. Join Mondays We Are One rallies. These demonstrations across the country by religious groups, social justice organizations and labor unions will illustrate that the middle class is mad as hell and not going to take trickster economics anymore. ............(more)
