America is nearing another completely avoidable austerity crisis. Like other recent budget battles, this crisis has nothing to do with the natural workings of the economy and everything to do with hostage-taking and intimidation by the conservatives in Congress and their billionaire Tea Party allies. This latest self-imposed crisis joins a long line of “super-committees”, “fiscal cliffs”, and “debt-ceiling battles” and this one is called “the sequester.” Learn more.
Across the country, ADA is organizing panel discussions, press conferences, and community actions to highlight how further cuts to domestic programs will damage our communities and slow our economy. Contact us to get involved and find an event near you!
Washing Our Hands of the Dirty Thirty
While there has been a lot of talk about budget sequestration and Federal deficit reduction, missing from the conversation has been outrage about the scores of exorbitantly profitable U.S corporations that pay little or no Federal taxes. That’s why ADA’s Working Families Win Iowa project is hosting Corporate Tax Dodgers vs. Domestic Priorities on Wednesday, February 20, starting at 6pm.
The panel will feature experts who will explain the damaging impact these cuts have on our community and outline how more progressive revenue approaches can tackle the United States’ deficit.
