Paul Broun District 10

When a representative doesn't represent everybody but just his own. I always have believed that a public servant is that; a servant of and for the people. Paul Broun doesn't want to accept that and will ignore any other voice that is not suitable to his own voice and ideas and will keep perpetuating division among his constituents.

Augusta, GA. 4-18-11 - On April 18 Tax Day or the official deadline for filing income taxes a group of more than a dozen folks stood unified in their message to make huge corporations like Bank of America PAY UP! This diverse group conducted a rally to demand corporate responsibility in lieu of the fact that banks like BofA enjoy numerous tax loopholes and tax subsidies that leave the rest of us out! Participants presented one area bank President with a list of their demands today at a Peach Orchard location in Augusta, Georgia. Outside onlookers waved and honked at seeing their signs insisting that the corporate giant Play Fair and Pay their Fair Share! Georgia Green Party member Denice Traina added her voice to others and chanted, "Don' Cut Teachers, Don't Cut Cops, Collect Taxes From the TOP!" Citizens from across the country banded together to focus upon the inequities of our income tax laws and how these laws protect the interests of the wealthy but do nothing to reward the middle class whom have suffered in the wake of financial collapse forcing thousands of families into bankruptcy. This followed by a Bail Out engineered by the Obama Administration further impacted working families who did not see a raise in their salaries even though they did see their paychecks devalued since none of their employers saw fit to match the negative effects of inflation thrust upon them. Add this to a failed housing market which prices those making less than $100,000 out of opportunities to achieve their American Dream of home ownership and you have a group of tremendously vocal and frustrated citizens. According to calculations, Bank of America owes the Internal Revenue Service $3,950,000,000.00 and they need to pay up NOW! Over 14,000 people mobilized across the country today to make their demands heard!Augusta Richmond County Sued
