DONATE →
This is viewer supported news

Congress this week is considering a $200 billion economic stimulus package consisting almost entirely of tax breaksfor the wealthy and rebates for major corporations, some of which have laid off tens of thousands of workers sinceSeptember 11.

The attacks on the WTC and Pentagon have dealt a harsh blow to the New York economy and exacerbated an economicdownturn that had begun earlier this year. There has been little attention to the impact of the September 11 attackson working people, and the impact of increases in military spending and corporate tax breaks on public services andassistance to the poor and unemployed.

Last night we attended a gathering entitled "Rebuilding New York for New Yorkers: a forum to discuss rebuilding ourlives with dignity for all."

Tape:

  • Rep. Gerald Nadler, (NY)
  • Denis Kucinich, (OH)
