Eric Grieco: Tell Congress: We need jobs, not cuts!
Speaker John Boehner:
We stand with the 99%.
We’re fed up with Wall Street greed and Washington inaction. We need jobs, not cuts, and policies that benefit 99% of Americans instead of only the top 1%.
Congress needs to work to build an economy that works for all of us, not just the richest. As a first step to putting America back to work, Congress should pass the American Jobs Act immediately — no later than by the Thanksgiving Recess. And pay for it by taxing Wall Street speculation.
AVAAZ: The World vs Wall Street
To fellow citizens occupying Wall Street and peoples protesting across the world:
We stand with you in this struggle for real democracy. Together we can end the capture and corruption of our governments by corporate and wealthy elites, and hold our politicians accountable to serve the public interest. We are united – the time for change has come!
Credo Action: Stand with Occupy Wall Street
“Not a single banker has gone to jail and yet over 1,000 protesters have been arrested. I stand with the protesters of Occupy Wall Street, and I demand that the NYPD respect their constitutional right to peaceful assembly.”
Get Money Out
It’s Time to GET MONEY OUT of politics
Bailouts. War. Unemployment. Our government is bought, and we’re angry. Now, we’re turning our anger into positive action. By signing this petition, you are joining our campaign to get money out of politics. Our politicians won’t do this. But we will. We will become an unrelenting, organized wave advocating a Constitutional amendment to get money out of politics.
As the petition grows, the wave grows. Email, Facebook, Tweet — GET MONEY OUT. We are using The Dylan Ratigan Show on MSNBC, and our ability to influence other media outlets as a platform to force this issue to the center of the 2012 elections. Join us.
From our former Washington Lobbyist, Jimmy Williams, here is a DRAFT of our Constitutional Amendment for public debate this fall:
“No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign, shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution or any amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Congress shall set forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for Federal office.”
