Politicians are raising tuition fees on students and want to raise taxes on everyone. California is facing a projected budget shortfall of over 2 billion dollars. Governor Jerry Brown (D-Ca) has proposed raising sales tax due to prison overcrowding.

.

Raising your taxes will NOT solve this problem. In 2010, corporate giant GE made hundreds of millions of dollars but paid almost NO taxes. If GE, B of A, Wells Fargo and other corporations and banks paid their FAIR SHARE, there would be no federal, state or county deficits/shortfalls. Instead, the government would have a surplus like they used to.

.

 Roads, dams, schools, hospitals, prisons, jails, etc. would not be in disrepair or overcrowded. The government would have the money they need and would not be looking for ways to raise taxes, cut social security, cut social programs or raise tuition fees. We already pay more taxes than corporations, now they want us to pay more for less. Corporations spend millions of dollars buying off our politicians. Politicians are paid over $100,000.00 a year. That's over three times the starting salary of police officers or schoolteachers. When politicians overspend the people's money. They should be required by law to take a pay cut. This would guarantee a balanced budget. Voting has only served to ensure the continuation of one corrupt party or the other. Occupying parks is NOT an effective protest. SHUT IT DOWN! They won't listen any other way. Join these local protests taking place.

 
1. Blu-flu/sick in: Deputies, prison guards and sheriffs are holding random "blu-flu"; call in sick protests across the state/country. Participating officers have pledged to uphold their oaths and disobey unconstitutional orders; and will not pepper spray peaceful demonstrators.

.
2. Students at middle schools, high schools and colleges are organizing "WALK OUTS" across the country.

.

3. Occupy Wall Street has began to occupy City Halls and Superior Courts across the country to stop the real criminals and corruption.

.
4. Union members are refusing to pay more and accept less.

.
5. Inmates have begun to refuse to be trustees and work for their own incarceration. Stop overcrowding -- SHUT IT DOWN! America currently locks up more of its own citizens than any other country on the planet. This is unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated.

.
6. Work stoppages and work slow-downs are taking place across the country. SHUT IT DOWN! They won't listen any other way.
