Local Residents To Rally Outside Of Rep. Pallone’s Office Wednesday To Urge Him To Continue To Focus On Jobs Not Cuts

Residents To Deliver New “Contract for the American Dream”
To Representative’s Office
Rally Wednesday at noon at
504 Broadway Long Branch, NJ 07740

In the wake of the final debt deal that raises the nation’s debt ceiling but fails to protect the middle class, local residents will gather Wednesday, at noon, at Rep. Pallone’s office to ask that he continue to stand up for the American Dream and focus on job creation, while many in Washington are focusing on cuts to vital programs that Americans depend on.

The recently passed debt deal, which will do nothing to create jobs, forces deep cuts to important programs that protect the middle class while asking nothing of big corporations and millionaires. And though it does not require cuts to Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid benefits, it opens the door for these down the road via an unaccountable Congressional committee.

“We need Washington to focus on protecting the American Dream and creating jobs, not pushing for more cuts to vital services,” said Marilyn Michaels, a local MoveOn member. “The Republicans in Washington are holding our economy hostage in pursuit of their extreme ideological agenda. We need Representative Pallone to continue to stand up for the folks in our community and demand more jobs not more cuts.”

The rally will take place on Wednesday at noon at 504 Broadway Long Branch, NJ 07740.

Participants will also deliver to Rep. Pallone a new Contract for the American Dream: a plan, written by over 125,000 Americans, to create jobs rather than destroy them. The Contract was released Monday and is attached.

The rallies being held this week are being organized by the new American Dream Movement. In July, over 800 rallies were held across the country to protest the final debt deal that fails to protect the middle class. The American Dream Movement is a growing movement inspired by protests in Wisconsin and fueled by the brutal right-wing attacks on

Local Residents To Protest Outside Of Runyon’s Office Tuesday; Debt Deal Fails To Protect Middle Class

Emergency Protest Tuesday, 12 noon at
600 Mule Rd #6,
Toms River, NJ 08757

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

– As Washington moves to pass a bill that will raise the nation’s debt ceiling but fails to protect the middle class, local residents will gather Tuesday at12 noon at Representative Jon Runyon’s office to protest the Republican Party’s attempt to squeeze the majority of Americans—and the American Dream—to maintain billions in tax giveaways for millionaires, billionaires, and our nation’s most profitable corporations.

The debt deal, currently moving in Washington, will force deep cuts to important programs that protect the middle class, but asks nothing of big corporations and millionaires. And though it does not require cuts to Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid benefits, it opens the door for these down the road via an unaccountable congressional committee.

“What we have seen the last few days in Washington is exactly why people in our community, and all over the nation, are saying enough is enough,” said Marilyn Michaels, a local MoveOn member. Representative Runyon and the other Republicans in Washington held our whole economy hostage simply to advance their ideological agenda. We are now stuck with a deal that protects millionaires and billionaires but fails to help everyday Americans like us. It is time for Congressman Runyon to stand up for the American Dream and protect the middle class.”

The protest will take part on Tuesday at 12 noon at 600 Mule Rd #6, Toms River, NJ.

The rallies this week are being organized by the new American Dream Movement. Last Tuesday, 800 similar rallies were held across the country. The American Dream Movement is a growing movement inspired by protests in Wisconsin and fueled by the brutal right-wing attacks on the middle class and the poor. MoveOn.org, along with countless organizations, have joined the American Dream Movement to fight to ensure that Americans have the opportunity to find a decent job, afford to go to college, and secure a future for our children and our communities.
