Rolling Out the Red Carpet for Romney

On March 20, Stand Up! Chicago welcomed Mitt Romney to town with a human red carpet, inviting him and his 1% supporters to walk on the 99% to get into the Hilton for the midday $1,000-a-head fundraiser his campaign was holding. By lying down on the ground in front of the hotel’s entrance, underneath a regal red carpet, we demonstrated how his “Tax the Poor” policies trample the 99% and benefit the very wealthy. An oversized Corporate Welfare King puppet, replete with a Romney button on his lapel, stomped on the carpet and called for his flesh-and-blood counterparts to join in. Romney’s policies, according to the Tax Policy Center, would force poor families to pay 60% more in taxes while giving the very wealthy an additional tax cut of 15%.
