Pataki: Anti-Budget Cuts Sticker

A two-color sticker with an image of Pataki with "devil" horns. The sticker explains that the estimated projected tax savings for a family earning $50,000/year would be $20, while programs for students, the elderly and the poor would be cut. Activists put this sticker on subway cars and public surfaces all over the city to build on the popular outrage against the budget cuts, which went beyond the cuts to CUNY and allowed for broad coalition work between many constituencies.
