You may have heard of the so-called "Fix the Debt" coalition. What they actually are is
an organization of CEO's of major corporations doing everything they can to make sure no
Federal budget that raises taxes on the rich is ever passed. They have more in common with
Grover Norquist, the US Chamber of Commerce, or the Club for Growth than with any real
grass-roots organization.

They would rather stop sending out Social Security and Medicaid checks than pay more taxes
on the huge salaries and bonuses they earn as the CEO's of corporations such as Wal-Mart.
Yes, Wal-Mart is a board member of "Fix the Debt."

On the 30th of January, hundreds of protesters organized by Our DC stormed Fix the Debt's DC
headquarterss!

Clip (storming the building)

Tape (Two speakers list corporations and CEOs that benefit if Congress ever passes the main
"fix the debt" proposal)

OK, now we know just who and what "fix the debt" is, the question is this: are we stupid enough
to buy into their voodoo economics, dumb enough to think letting CEOs keep more money will ever
mean lower prices or higher wages for the rest of us? I don't think so!
