COLUMBIA- Grass Roots Organizing (GRO) caroled Monday at Missouri Congressional offices calling for the end of the Bush-era tax cuts and asked to not cut Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security.

GRO says its time for the wealthliest two percent of Americans who make more than $250,000 a year to pay what the group calls their fair share of taxes.

The group carried around bags of presents labeled Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. It said those three things were what it wanted for Christmas.

The group started in downtown Columbia at Senator Claire McCaskill's office. Then walked to Sen. Roy Blunt's office. Then drove to Rep. Blaine Leutkemeyer's and Vicky Hartzler's offices.
