Marco Ceglie
Founding member, The Other 98%

Marco Ceglie is a freelance writer, producer and small business entrepreneur who has been fighting for economic fairness using humor and creative tactics to promote policies that benefit working and middle class Americans since 2004. Born and raised a Republican in the working class suburbs of Jersey, he has used creative tactics like Billionaire For Bush (and now Wealthcare) to highlight economic issues using humor and satire.

As a part of those efforts, Marco led the group’s “Get on the Limo” tours in 2004, auctioned off Social Security on eBay in 2005, created the first-ever ironic think tank to help fight against Estate Tax repeal, and delivered 37,000 copies of the U.S. Constitution to the Bush White House via Santa and sleigh. More recently, he co-produced "No, You Can't" during the 2008 Presidential campaign and "Public Option Annie", the guerilla musical interruption at 2009's AHIP conference.

Over the last two years he also co-founded the non-profit, non-partisan youth civics engagement program Vote 18, which teaches high school students the history of voting, makes it relevant in their lives, and engages them in the world of politics.
