Tax Resistance and A Call for Corporations and the Wealthy to Pay Their Fair Share04/15/13 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Monday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei.
Today is the deadline for individuals to file their federal income tax returnsâ€¦. Weâ€™ll talk with a tax protestor in a moment.
Laterâ€”there are several protests around the bay area todayâ€”and hundreds more around the country- calling on corporations to pay their fair share of taxesâ€”weâ€™ll talk with someone who is taking part in a protest against corporate tax avoidanceâ€¦
Our first guest is peace activist Ed Hedemann who on moral grounds opposes spending on the military. So, for more than 40 years he has not paid federal income taxes. Heâ€™s a member of a group called the National War Tax Resistance Co-ordinating Committee. I spoke with him last Friday.
Our next guest is Kevin King, the Political Director of PICO Florida- People Improving Communities Through Organizing. He was part of a protest this morning in St. Petersburg- calling for the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share of taxes.
