Occupy Occupy DC to Call for Reductions in Federal Spending at March 2 Events

DollarRally030212BorderWhiteMembers of the National Center for Public Policy Research's "Occupy Occupy D.C." street team will rally against federal overspending Friday at noon in Washington D.C.'s Freedom Plaza (13th and Pennsylvania Avenue NW).

Rally participants will engage in skits to demonstrate to massive scope of federal spending, which has led to a federal debt that is expected to reach $16 trillion by the end of the summer.

"You spent 33,400,000,000 of my relatives. Why spend me?" rally participants Chris and Kate plan to symbolically ask President Obama - while dressed as $100 bills.

"My family operates on a budget, why can't Washington?" asked David Almasi, executive director of the National Center for Public Policy Research and director of the National Center's "Occupy Occupy D.C." project. "I don't have a magical way of paying for everything I want, and that sometimes presents tough choices. For too long, lawmakers have had all carrot and no stick. The problem is clear, but there are still too many people who refuse to acknowledge it."

The National Center has obtained a five-week permit for Freedom Plaza share the plaza with left-wing "Occupy D.C." protesters. Since February 13, it has sponsored noontime events promoting liberty and limited government every weekday.
