Today, Thursday, Dec. 13 at 1 p.m., David Wellstone will join Minnesotans from the third congressional district to discuss the place for Minnesota values in the fiscal cliff negotiations and the state’s history of standing with middle-class families.
As the fiscal cliff draws nearer, Rep. Paulsen continues to hold up the tax relief for middle-class families in order to protect additional tax breaks for the rich, according to The Action.
Wellstone and attendees will discuss taking action to show that they want Congress to act now in extending middle-class tax relief and allow the additional cuts for the wealthiest two percent of Americans to expire.
The roundtable discussion begins at 1 p.m. at the Caribou Coffee located at 4754 County Road 101 #400 in Minnetonka.
David Wellstone is the son of Paul Wellstone, a Democratic politician who represented Minnesota in the U.S. Senate from 1991 until his death in a plane crash in 2002. David Wellstone recently published the book "Becoming Wellstone" about his ordeal in coping with the crash that killed his parents and his sister.
The Action is a campaign to demand fairness and progress from Congress by extending middle-class tax cuts and ending the additional Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest. The Action is made up of a broad coalition of grassroots activists, nonprofit organizations, Labor unions, small-business associations and local leaders across more than 26 states.
