  1. Durbin is a cat’s paw for Obama. Obama said right after the election that he was not wedded to his position, would compromise, and wanted more revenue, not an increase in tax RATES. Sellout?

    • Alice:
      We are advocating for an increase in tax rates for the richest 2% of Americans. We want those rates to return to levels during the Clinton administration, during which time we had a budget surplus. We are also urging Durbin to work for a small financial transaction tax that would raise billions in revenue from Wall Street. If the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share we can afford to preserve our social safety net without continuing to grow the debt.
