Rotating fiscal cliff vigils to be held across Michigan

Wednesday, December 26, 2012   by: Staff



“Countdown to Cliff” vigils to be held across Michigan

Starting today at 8 a.m., The Action of Michigan will be coordinating vigils at Congressional offices as the countdown to the fiscal cliff begins.

The “rotating vigils” will take place over the next five days outside of the congressional offices of: Mike Rogers on December 26, Tim Walberg on December 27, Dave Camp on December 28, Dan Benishek on December 29 and Fred Upton on December 30.

The vigils will be silent protests telling the Congressmen “Don’t drop the ball” on the middles class and will last 12 hours each day, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If no deal is reached the United States is set to see tax rates rise on all Americans beginning January 1, 2013.

The Action believes that Congressional Republicans should agree to the legislation passed by the Senate and encouraged by President Obama to avoid a tax increase on the middle class.
