The following is prepared testimony from Robert Borosage delivered today to the Congressional Progressive Caucus's Hearing on Jobs

Today, I want to speak candidly about the situation this nation faces. Tomorrow, tens of thousands of Americans across this country will demonstrate to demand jobs, not cuts, from the Congress. They demand action on jobs, and opposition to cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and services vital to Americans. These demonstrators represent the 99%. As poll after poll has shown, they give voice to the priorities of the vast majorities of Americans. Authorities can remove Occupy Wall Street from Liberty Park, but they cannot silence an idea whose time has come. And this Congress should take heed.
Let me lay out the case clearly and make three points. 1. For this nation to succeed, the Super Committee must fail. 2. It is time to put people to work. 3. Shared Sacrifice is for suckers.
