'Beware the Fiscal Cliff:' Local Democrats Plan Rally in Support of Obama

A local "Beware the Fiscal Cliff" gathering is tentatively scheduled to take place from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28 at the corner of Margarita and Winchester roads in Temecula.

A rally in support of President Barack Obama's efforts in the face of the so-called impending federal "fiscal cliff" is being planned for Friday in Temecula.

The event is being headed up by a local chapter of Organizing for America (OFA) volunteers and the Democratic Club of Southwest Riverside County.

"As we settle down after the election, and finish up our holiday functions, we shouldn't forget that the Congress still has not resolved the current 'crisis,'" said rally organizer Kathy Katz. "The President needs our support as he tries to make sure the 98 percent making under $250,000 do not suffer because Republicans won't commit to retaining Bush Tax Cuts without retaining tax cuts for the top 2 percent."

President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at the White House with Congressional representatives from both sides of the aisle in an attempt to continue negotiations as the Jan. 1, 2013 deadline approaches, according to news reports.

In Temecula, the gathering was tentatively scheduled to take place from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28 at the corner of Margarita and Winchester roads. Attendees should park in the WinCo parking lot at 40435 Winchester Road, organizers said.

The two groups said they will proceed with the rally if enough volunteers step up to participate.

Those willing to join in were asked to contact Kathy Katz at 909-227-1553 or kkatz@iinet.com.

Jeff you are such an idiot. 9 years with one company and 5 years with another along with many short stints with many other projects and companies. Electricians follow projects not employers. I left as a master electrician. That part of my life along with the $59 an hour I made is over. I was on unemployment for 4 months then have been working ever since. Four months is pretty short huh? It just so happens that was the court time but like I said you are a moron stuck on a snapshot of my life. And you cannot interpret court victories by me because I did them in mediation out of sight of your Gay obsessed prying eyes. I was just in court for some adjustments two months ago but yet again it was not in front of the judge so yet again you have no idea what is going on you ignorant stalking dumb fuck.

Ignorance is rampant here on the Patch! Democrats want tax breaks for those who make UNDER $250,000, do YOU not fit into this group? So you're complaining about what now???? I'm a Democrat, obviously, and have NEVER received a dime from our government! I've been paying into the system for nearly 20 years though and thank god Obama got re-elected!! You people are idiots, he is trying to HELP the middle class, unlike "Boner" who only wants to help his cronies who are multi-millionaires like himself!! The brainless sheeple, poor, and yet still supporting principles that are draining them dry!! Amazing.
Gandhi December 29, 2012 at 01:34 AM
BUSH bailed out the banks you idiots, with OUR tax dollars!!! Any idea how many trillions were spent in the "wars" in the middle east that Bush started?? What is it you dont understand here? Unbelievable.

Which category do YOU fit into by the way? Your assumptions regarding Shane just make you look ignorant, but as the old saying goes, if the shoe fits........
Gandhi December 29, 2012 at 01:40 AM

Not to mention that Al Gore had the majority popular vote over Bush, those are facts. Now that one TOPS THEM ALL! I can't believe you would actually open up that can of worms!

Plenty of confused people Ghandi, some republican confused, some democrat confused.

Gandhi and Angry Inch Jeff are the reason that welfare recipients need to be drug tested.

Even the SUPREME LIAR can't fool everyone for ever. If it wasn't for the union thugs, this SLUG would still be in Chicago organizing the street gangs.

libs are stupid, but you have to admit that they are funny.
Vic December 29, 2012 at 04:51 AM
I don't know, Roberto. I've seen your exchanges and I can't say that I give a crap about your drama either. This is the Patch. You get what you give and then some...
Vic December 29, 2012 at 04:53 AM
Now I'm Tonja??? Who the hell is that???
Vic December 29, 2012 at 05:00 AM
A little, Dave? I just blew chunks...
Mr. Logical December 29, 2012 at 08:12 AM
This is a perfect example of our democratice and republican represenatives not working for the good of all the American people. They are more concerned with their own reputation than they are with the welfare of the American people. Shame on all of them. This is supposed to be a government 'by the people and for the people'. What we have is a bunch of egotistical leaders that refuse to work together to find compromise for the good of the American public. If they would focus on what is best for this country, instead of the special interest groups, they would have found a solution a long time ago. The only good government is God's government. King Jesus is coming soon, lets all be ready.
Mr. Logical December 29, 2012 at 08:14 AM
Democrats and Republicans should not be railing against each other, we should be demanding much better than we are getting out of our elected officials.
Rick Carson December 29, 2012 at 05:10 PM
Just my 2 cents, I think we should go over the Cliff. The Fiscal cliff was created by Congress by spending money they didnt have, By way of background information, The budgets were based on Projected surplus in GDP and the surplus never came to pass.but the money was spent before it was made. The U.S. should balance their budgets and pay their bills, ( Limit Debit Spending and pay off the National Debit ) The United States needs to spend money ( resources) based on what it Has and not what it might have. Gun Control: We must do something to stop the Newtown type tragedies . Perhaps, by Federal law making other states follow the existing gun back ground checks, Closing the Gun Show loop holes. Making it easier for families to get Medical help for a Mentally challenged member. Ban Large capacity gun magazines . As a Veteran, I support the 2nd Amendment,but I don't think that a Citizen should be as well armed as the Police or the Military. Lastly, Shouldn't we organize to protect our schools ? We have a Neighborhood Crime Watch shouldn't we have a Neighborhood School Watch ? It wouldnt cost anything. Just Volunteers from Retirement age people with cell phones. ( giving the police added response time)
Dave Peters December 29, 2012 at 09:03 PM
Mr.Logical, you are exactly right!! I don't care which political party associate thems themselves with. Democrats should be rallying against thier own representatives & Republicans should be rallying against theirs. Both parties should be ashamed of themsrlves for holding the citizens hostage due to their ongoing pissing match. They are paid to represent the best interests of all the people of this nation. Since they can't seem to do that I say suspend their pay & benefits. If I don't perform my job duties I shouldnt expect to be paid, so why should they if they aren't .
Dave Peters December 29, 2012 at 09:19 PM
That's a very good point Rick. If we so value our neighborhoods that we form neighborhood watches, then why couldnt we do something similar for our schools?
