|On January 30, members of Occupy Wall Street joined together with seniors, union members and community groups to challenge the influential Wall Street front group known as 'Fix The Debt' that has been pushing for increased austerity measures in the US in the name of reducing the national deficit. The protesters marched to the famous 'National Debt Clock' near the IRS building on 44th and 6th Ave and unveiled their own colorful debt clock that said, 'Hey 1%! Want to Fix The Debt? Pay Your Damn Taxes!'. This alternative debt clock displayed the total amount that the 1% and corporations have stolen from the US budget by exploiting tax loopholes, tax havens and tax cuts.|
