Cutting government also means cutting jobs and a group rallying in downtown Bend Thursday night wanted to get that message out. The rally in front of the Wells Fargo Bank in downtown Bend had several speakers addressing the urgent need in our state for family wage jobs. Maureen Crawford is a community organizer. “We also want to get out that the economy can't be fixed by budget cuts alone or stimulated by tax loopholes for corporation or the wealthy or budget cuts to Medicaid. Those programs actually do fund jobs in Oregon. And making cuts not only affects the people on them, but cuts jobs and it stresses the system.” The rally in Bend was part of a statewide effort over the last couple days to target Congressional leaders and stress to them the need for job creation and not just government cuts.
