02/12/2013 - Seniors and veterans showed up at a "Fix the Debt" event in New Hampshire to tell Honeywell CEO David Cote that if he really wants to fix the debt, he should have Honeywell pay its fair share of taxes. Cote is one of a number of wealthy corporate leaders in the "Fix the Debt" coalition, which advocates for cuts to benefits like Social Security and Medicare and is pushing for lower corporate taxes. Advocates for working families and their allies point out that many of the "Fix the Debt" companies engage in loopholes to avoid paying their fair share of taxes.
The protest was sponsored by U.S. Uncut and Flip the Debt and was held in conjunction with a rally at which veterans with disabilities and seniors shared their stories about surviving on social safety net programs and how any cuts would harm them. read more>>>
