The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) march to a rally to "Save the American Dream" on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on Thursday, July 28, 2011. "In the past few days, it’s become increasingly clear that congressional Republicans are willing to crash our entire economy just to keep tax breaks for millionaires, billionaires, corporate jet owners and oil companies," says the AFL-CIO. "They’re holding our economy hostage, but we still have the power to rise up and demand Congress raise the debt ceiling without a budget that savages working families." Protest sign reads "Don't Destroy Social Security". (Photo by Jeff Malet)
