‘Robin Hood’ – robbing the rich to help the poor

Thu, Jan 3, 2013

“Robin Hood” — robbing the rich to help the poor– was among the protesters at a “Durbinville” shantytown December 6 outside the Kluczynski Federal Building and the offices of U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL). Organized by Jane Addams Senior Caucus, Northside P.O.W.E.R., Lakeview Action Coalition, among other grassroots groups, the shantytown was intended to demonstrate suffering from budget cuts to safety net programs. Durbin, who is leading budget negotiations for President Obama, had refused to hear the grassroots’ groups plea to take Social Security off the table until late November and is still willing to cut Medicaid and Medicare, group leaders said.
