This Week in OtherWords: November 14, 2012

November 14, 2012 ·

Sarah Anderson Khalil Bendib highlight the dangers of the slick and well-financed "Fix the Debt" campaign.

This week, OtherWords features an op-ed by Sarah Anderson and a cartoon by Khalil Bendib that highlight the dangers of the "Fix the Debt" campaign. Spearheaded by big corporations and their CEOs, this slick and well-financed initiative could only make our national financial situation worse by slashing tax revenue and cutting Social Security and other earned benefits.

As always, I encourage you to visit the OtherWords blog and subscribe to our weekly newsletter if you haven't signed up yet.
