Portestors demand jobs, not cuts, outside Fitzpatrick’s Langhorne office

    It must be protest day in Pennsylvania.

    Despite the rain, occupiers remain at City Hall, some Philadelphia custodial workers will march today and volunteers will be in Bucks County to call for jobs, not cuts, from the state legislature.

    The the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare’s “Hands Off-No Cuts” campaign and the Bucks County Common Sense Coalition will be outside Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick’s Langhorne office “to stop threatened cuts to three of the nation’s most valued income security and health insurance programs; Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.”

    The campaign will argue instead in favor of job creation.
