On Saturday, March 12, police estimated that approximately 100,000 turned out in Madison to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s attack on unions. The Madison rally was bigger than the Tea Party’s biggest protest ever on September 12, 2009, which was estimated at 60,000-70,000.
Instead of the Republican proposal to cut much-needed programs for families, children and low-income people (the blue column), why not remove the tax breaks for the wealthy (green column)?
Why does it seem like there’s always enough money to give more and more tax breaks to the richest people in America, but never enough money to support those who need it most: the unemployed, those struggling to put food on their tables, our children’s teachers. Could it be that the two are… gasp!… related?
