Soak The Rich, Please

Abby Zimet

Happy Tax Day. In its honor, the fools at Fox have charged that Obama's vaguely articulated wish to somewhat more equitably distribute the vast wealth of this country is, like, so unfair; the War Resisters' League has released is annual federal pie chart showing where your money goes; the IRS has released numbers showing that the rich are getting richer, in large part by paying half the taxes they used to; and, in the day's only even remotely hopeful news, the Patriotic Millionaires have asked the government to raise their taxes "for the well being of our fellow citizens." 



FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
