Delaware Town Hall Forum

Seventy-five concerned citizens attended to learn about the "fiscal cliff".

Update:  The Delaware Town Hall forum, The Fiscal Cliff, Delaware and YOU, was a huge success.  In a packed room, Senator Coons’ Communications Director confirmed to the crowd that the Senator would not vote for a deal that lacks sufficient revenue increases. Attendees also heard from advocates for small business, women and Labor. All agreed that the automatic tax increases on the middle class and indiscriminate budget cuts on programs for working families that constitute the “cliff” must be replaced with a comprehensive deficit-reduction deal, with higher taxes on the wealthy as the central component.
