August 30, 2012, will be a national day of action against Mitt Romney’s economic policies. As the Republican Party prepares to formally nominate Romney that evening in Tampa, thousands of Americans will stand up and say no to a Romney Economy that puts the richest 1% ahead of the rest of us.
Here in Philly, we will put the Romney economy to rest with a funeral procession that ends at his headquarters. Romney’s key economic points like offshoring jobs, tax cuts for the rich and privatizing services will be buried – and the 99 will celebrate an economy that works for everyone. The ceremony will include caskets, tombstones, weeping 1%’ers, a jazz band and drumline – and a joyous crowd of 99’ers. After the Romney economic agenda has been declared dead, a few Philadelphians will speak about why they are saying no to a Romney economy.
Here are reasons why Romney-Nomics are no good:
- Tax cuts for the rich, while leaving the 99% in the dust.
- Making millions by shipping our jobs overseas and leaving hard working Americans jobless.
- Corporate executives raking in millions off the backs of low paid workers.
