Tax Day: A Time to Speak up for our Values

This year, Republicans control both houses of Congress. They are sharpening
their knives to cut vital programs the country needs. At the same time,
both Congress and the President are calling for increasing the Pentagon
budget, going to war and spending billions to upgrade our vast nuclear
weapons capability.

Meanwhile the highest income groups and corporate tax cheats merrily go
their way instead of paying their fair share.

But there are voices everywhere in the country speaking up for common
sense, peace, public programs that our families need, and a country we can
be proud of. On Tax Day we will join our voices to theirs and insist on
budget priorities and tax policies that match our values.

We need a *Budget for All!*

*Apple Computer *moves most of its profits into offshore tax havens so it
doesn’t have to pay U.S. taxes on them. Last year alone *Apple* avoided
paying $44 billion on profits parked overseas! Bank of America does the
same. Other companies like Verizon and Citibank don’t pay any taxes at all!
Imagine what all those billions and billions of dollars could do for mass
transit, renewable energy, poverty alleviation, education, job creation!
Instead, with all the money they save, they can buy elections. OK boys:
Time to pay your share.
