Democrats can win the fiscal showdown! But Democratic L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa joined the main group hell-bent on cutting Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security benefits while giving tax breaks to big corporations. It's called Fix The Debt and is funded by big corporations.
Join thousands of others who signed the petition calling on Mayor Villaraigosa to resign from Fix the Debt:
PETITION: Fix The Debt’s corporate-backed approach to gutting our social safety net is dangerous. You should be working towards a balanced approach that will not hurt working and middle class families.
Joining the steering committee of Fix The Debt was a mistake. You should immediately resign from the organization and work towards actual solutions that will help all Americans.
This petition was started by Villaraigosa's constituent, Angela Garcia Combs, using SignOn.org.
Others on the Fix The Debt steering committee include the CEOs of Boeing, Dow Chemical, Aetna, AT&T, and JPMorgan. (See a pattern?)
Sign the petition on the right. Your signature will be delivered to the mayor's office this week!
