The Occupy Super Committee Is Producing Results
While the Congressional Super Committee is being touted as a failure
, the "99% Super Committee" is coming up with some promising results. After a hearing on November 9th, 2011, the Committee has produced a comprehensive and evidence-based report. That report resulted in the "99% Deficit Proposal," which has been provided to the Congressional Super Committee. One aide called it "the first actual proposal" received.
The 99% Deficit Proposal:
-Raises $600 billion in annual revenues, meeting deficit reduction goals within two years.
-Cuts hundreds of billions in annual spending by addressing military and corporate spending as well as pharmaceutical costs.
- Creates millions of jobs and stimulates the economy by easing student loan debt.
-Restores Social Security coverage to its intended 90% of all income and expands Medicare coverage to all US citizens.
-Presents steps to creating a democratized economy, the already developing new economy that will replace the failed finance, corporate capitalism.Sign the Petition
to have the 99% Deficit Proposal read aloud in both houses of Congress.
