In the name of avoiding the wildly exaggerated “fiscal cliff” deadline, the self-interested corporate CEOs behind Fix the Debt are pushing a deficit reduction plan that would lower taxes for corporations and the super-rich while slashing programs central to the middle class and those working their way into it. Meanwhile, none of the deficit hawks is talking about putting America back to work and jump-starting our economy. Didn’t we just reject this on Election Day?
Health Care for America Now has a new fact sheet (below) that shows how similar Fix the Debt’s proposals are to Romney’s. You can download a PDF here, as well as a previous background piece here.
