The clock is ticking. It’s time for us all to let New Jersey’s Congressional Delegation know we need them to do the right thing and let the Bush Tax Cuts expire for the wealthiest 2%.

Today – there will be candlelight vigils taking place outside Congressional Offices throughout New Jersey imploring Republican representatives to let the Bush Tax Cuts expire for the top 2%. They’re being organized by our friends at CWA District 1, BlueWave NJ, New Jersey Citizen Action, GrassRoots4Change and Organizing for America.  But, anyone is free to participate in telling Congress to protect New Jersey’s middle-class by letting the Bush Tax Cuts lapse on top income-earners.

There are a whole bunch of reasons why this is the correct course of action.

I laid out a few of my thoughts last week in an op-ed for the Times of Trenton.


Letting the Bush Tax Cuts expire for the richest 2% would make good on the voters’ loud call for fairness at the polls last month. It would help take care of half the money needed to steer America clear of the “fiscal cliff”.  97% of small businesses and 98% of Americans would continue receiving the exact same tax relief.  Moreover, economists have proven tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans are the least effective way to grow the economy.

Below you can find the locations for the vigils taking place this Monday, December 10th from 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM

 Earlier this month activist and informational get-togethers took place in Montclair, Pleasantville, Toms River and Willingboro.



On this Day of Action, participants learned about the “fiscal cliff” and how it will affect programs the middle-class and working families care about. Specifically, they discussed how important it is for Congress to let the Bush Tax Cuts for the wealthiest 2%.  They spoke of ways to mobilize during this lame duck Congressional session and came up with citizen actions to make sure our representatives listen to the will of the people – who voted for fairness at the polls last month.
