The so-called fiscal cliff is actually a fiscal bluff — a made-up crisis to make us think our government is out of money and out of time. Congress continues to drag its feet over raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans despite the top 1% earning 23% of the nation’s income, and insists on calling for cuts to vital programs instead of reining in massive subsidies ($100 billion in 2011 alone) to major corporations that already make billions in profits. America isn’t broke — it’s being robbed.
Today is ARTSTRIKE — a day of action to share powerful art and music that can convince our friends that more cuts and tax breaks aren’t the answer. Artists from across the country have come together to make their voices heard. Check out a few of my favorites below, and help me share them far and wide. We can’t win in Congress until we change the conversation.
