Tell Speaker Boehner the Payroll Tax Cut extension is not ‘Chicken Sh–.’ SIGN NOW

Speaker Boehner and House Republican Leadership think extending the payroll tax cut and helping Americans pay their bills is “chicken sh–.” That’s what he told Tea Party House Republicans at a closed-door meeting. This bill would save the average American family over $1000 a year. That’s not “chicken sh–.” Sign our petition today telling Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor and the rest of the Tea Party Republicans in Congress that extending the payroll tax cut is critical to the American people and the American economy. It’s definitely not “chicken sh–.” SIGN HERE!

Kendall Regional Medical Center: Stand with our Healthcare Workers

Right now at Kendall Regional Medical Center many of the most senior and experienced workers are being denied increases to our base pay. The hospital caps our hourly wages. At the same time, the corporation that KRMC is affiliated with gave its key executives a 200% increase in compensation between 2009 – 2010. We were taught hard work will be rewarded. Being capped on what we earn while executives get 200% increases from the care we provide is unfair. Being part of this community is what makes Kendall Regional Medical Center great.
