Voters to Demand an Economy That Works for the 99%, End to Outsourcing, Healthcare Cuts and Corporate Tax Breaks

Among the participants will be workers who have just returned from protesting the Romney Economy at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

 

As part of a nationwide movement rejecting ?Mr. 1%,? workers will speak out against the elements of the Romney Economy that are dangerous to the working and middle class: outsourcing, tax breaks for the rich coupled with take hikes for the middle class, cuts to education and healthcare funding.
