Closing Zombie Loopholes

Abby Zimet

Citing a Center for Tax Justice study that says closing seven big corporate tax loopholes could raise $1.5 trillion, Education Votes, a public information campaign by the National Education Association, is fighting to close those loopholes and direct the money saved to badly-needed education initiatives -  from good pre-schools for poor kids to Pell Grants for college students to up to half a million dollars to every school in America to help low-income kids. Petition and entertaining zombie-flavored video.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
