  •  Thank you, Mr. Trumka and AFL-CIO (4+ / 0-)

    for all you do to protect the workers and retired workers of this country.  Signed the petition yesterday and was happy to do so.  This Congress and this administration need to realize that for many Americans, financially our backs are against the wall.  Let the obscenely wealthy who have profited mightily over the past several years lay down their selfishness and start paying their fair share of the costs of running this government.  Let THEM give up the hundreds of pages of tax breaks they hog for themselves!  It's past time for them to pay their way and stop leaching off of the labor of working people!  Their wealth in many instances has come at high cost to their own employees.  If they need to be shamed publicly for their greed and selfishness, so be it.  It's past time for the playing field to be leveled and not tilted to their advantage.

    We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both. Louis D. Brandeis
