Occupy Fall River has worked to promote the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ Deal For All in Massachusetts (see Budget4Allmass.org), a federal budget alternative that calls for more reasonable military spending and investment in jobs and services for our communities. Currently, 57% of our discretionary budget – more than the next 15 countries combined – goes to the military, while only 6% is allocated for education. Here, listen to Your Paycheck tell the whole story:
Contact your Representative! Support the Deal For All. In Massachusetts, vote YES for the ballot question November 6.
- Prevent cuts to desperately needed services (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, housing, unemployment assistance)
- Create and protect jobs by investing in manufacturing, schools, renewable energy and more
- Provide new revenues by closing corporate loopholes and increase taxes on the 1%
- Redirect military spending towards domestic needs by reasonable Pentagon spending, ending the wars and bringing our troops home safely
