Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
The April 15th tax deadline is looming in 12 days---as Americans do their duty and settle up their tax bill with the US Governmentâ€¦..
Even though most citizens dutifully pay their taxesâ€”itâ€™s not enough. For the past several years governments at all levels have been cutting budgetsâ€”laying off workers and reducing services and pay.
At the same time we are told that the federal governmentâ€™s debt has reached crisis proportionsâ€”and even more needs to be done.
Meantime- multibillion-dollar American corporations such as Exxon, Google and Bank of America are making record profits. And as our next guests tell usâ€”these corporations are concealing many of those colossal profits overseas to avoid paying US income taxes. Our guests are the film-makers behind a film called WEâ€™RE NOT BROKE
Weâ€™re joined by Karin Hayes and Victoria Bruce
