Strong Protest At Senator John Cornyn’s Office In Support Of Good Jobs, Investement In America, and Increased Taxes On The Most Wealthy

The good Americans you see in the picture above were protesting today outside the Houston office of Republican U.S.  Senator John Cornyn.

These loyal Americans were demanding tax increases for the most wealthy, good jobs, and a federal budget that invests in America. They were out protesting because they know that the work of freedom is up to each of us.

Our Tea Party/Republican Party foes never rest in helping the rich get richer, and in making sure that hard honest work does not pay off for everyday Americans.

These protestors were part of the Good Jobs=Great Houston Coalition.

Here are the member groups as of so far in the Good Jobs coalition.  You can click on the logo of each group to learn more about what they do.

It is up to each of us to be involved in our future.

Every Texan and every American has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes, engage in acts of civil disobedience, and even run for public office.

  1. “Our Tea Party/Republican Party foes never rest in helping the rich get richer”

    Isn’t a common complaint from the left that the wealthy and businesses have been sitting on cash rather than investing it in expansion? How do you square that with “helping the rich get richer?”

  2. If you want to experience real frustration, e mail Cornyn’s office and ask a simple question: Did Senator Cornyn sign on to the pledge not to raise taxes?
    After about 10 days you will get a reply but the question will not be answered. A simple yes or no was all I wanted. But Cornyn (and his aides) can’t be honest.

    I guess I’m just naive. I thought elected officals are supposed to be responsive to their constituents.
