Come out and Support a Tax on Wall Street to Benefit the 99%
What Would You Do with an Extra $300 Billion/Year?
April 2015 will mark 47 years since Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered while conducting a national campaign against economic inequality. In the nearly half a century that has passed, the gap between the top 1% wealthiest and the rest of Americans has only widened.
On April 8th, supporters of the Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street – a real cure to the illness of rampant economic inequality – will hold vigils at congressional offices across the country to demand that Congress pass the Inclusive Prosperity Act. Similar events were held last year and were very successful in moving members of Congress to support the Robin Hood Tax.

The Inclusive Prosperity Act, the bill sponsored by Rep. Keith Ellison D-MN contains a tiny tax on Wall Street’s speculative trades, which would raise between $300 - $350 billion dollars a year to fund permanent living wage jobs rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure, ending student debt, creating a green energy manufacturing boom, providing quality education for all of our children, greatly expanding mass transit, guaranteed healthcare for all and in serving many other human and environmental needs. The Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street would also provide Americans with retirement and housing security.
All of that would go a long way toward healing our nation’s obscene wealth and income inequality while honoring the struggle that Dr. King gave his life for.
