A tax hike for the rich or the government buying a stake in financial institutions are not socialism, said Milton Tambor, head of the Atlanta chapter of Democratic Socialists of America.

"It's kind of absurd, actually," he said. "The way it gets framed now, if you talk about progressive taxation, you're a socialist."
Tambor, a retired union organizer, defined socialism much the same way the 19th century German philosopher Karl Marx did, as workers owning the means of production.

"No one has a sense that Obama will bring about a progressive agenda without significant pressure being brought to bear," Tambor said.

That means stopping foreclosures, modifying those bad loans, and stopping predatory lending," Milton Tambor, President of the Democratic Socialists of America, Atlanta chapter, said.

"Now we started with Wachovia, not because they're the worst; they're as bad a lot of the others. But we do know of particular cases where they targeted elderly, they targeted disabled, and they made loans they could not afford to pay," Tambor said.

Vincent Fort; former Fire and Police Commissioner A. Reginald Eaves; Charlie Flemming, President of the AFL-CIO North GA Labor Council; Milton Tambor, President of the Democratic Socialists of America, Atlanta Chapter; and Dianne Mathiowetz of the International Action Center, Atlanta--were arrested for refusing to leave the bank after Wells Fargo officials refused to meet with them.

...
They were trying to work out loan modifications," Tambor told APN. "We did make progress as a result of that, no doubt about it."
"Legal aid was not getting anywhere with reasonable loan modifications until pressure was brought to bear," Tambor said.
Wells Fargo had designated a single representative to handle all of the Foreclosure Coalition/Legal Aid cases. "It's changed, having that person as a representative has made a difference."
The AFL-CIO held a community hearing on foreclosures on July 22, 2010, in Atlanta, and activists marched to a Wachovia branch in Midtown Atlanta on 17th Street, Tambor said.
This time, instead of being arrested, activists met with bank representatives. Activists were seeking a process to help all families facing foreclosures, Tambor said, not just the 10 cases they had already identified.
"We asked for more information about how they are dealing with loan modifications and they said would provide the information," Tambor said.
Tambor also said, despite over a year of implementation, the federal legislation enacted to help keep people in the homes under the Obama Administration has not been very successful, with only a small number of loans being modified through the program.
