Big Labor is keeping up its fiscal-cliff-messaging drumbeat.
Next week, the AFL-CIO is expecting hundreds of families to hold a "candlelight campaign" to urge lawmakers to keep entitlement programs intact and let tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans expire, the union announced today.
The candlelight vigils, town-hall meetings and other events are pegged to International Human Rights Day, which is Monday.
The union's latest push has a holiday theme. For instance, Montana's senators will be getting a giant Christmas card that asks them not to cut entitlements and to raise taxes on the wealthy—and there will be carols.
