Congress recently approved a tax increase for 1 percent of the country's wealthiest individuals, but that still leaves a shortfall for revenues that lawmakers want to siphon off from Social Security, Medicare, and other social programs.
"If they cut Medicare then I'm going to be affected, because I won't have healthcare. For the average person, we're affected more than we know," says Candis Collins from Americans for Tax Fairness.
These protestors want to see the top 2 percent of America's earners see a tax bump to increase revenues.
The group also wants congress to eliminate special tax breaks to corporations.
