Tax Wall Street for gambling with our money. Pass the financial speculation tax.

Support education. Put teachers back in classrooms and ease the crippling burden of student debt.

End too big to fail. Rein in the big banks NOW and hold the people who caused the financial crisis accountable.

Fair share of taxes from the 1%. End the Bush tax cuts for the 1% and close corporate tax loopholes.

Businesses should invest in jobs. Corporations must stop sitting on their profits and start hiring again here in America.
