Riding with Robin Hood to Take from Wall Street and Distribute to Main Street!
The Robin Hood Tax campaigners who take to the streets
Think about it, in this the wealthiest country in the world the newest US data shows more than 48.9 million Americans lived in households struggling against hunger in 2012. But, despite this the House Republican Leadership's Nutrition-Only Farm Bill just cut $40 billion dollars from the Supplemental Nutrition ssistance Program (SNAP), the newest term for food stamps. They also voted to defund Pres. Obama's health care law, setting up another fiscal showdown just before the October 1st federal budget deadline. These draconian cuts are a renewed attack on all safety-net and poverty-alleviation programs. They say "where's the beef, there's no money". But we say we're sitting on a virtual pot of gold that could fund hunger, healthcare, and education. So we'll head to the streets of NY where Robin Hood and his followers say it's time to tax Wall Street to feed Main Street with a Robin Hood Tax.
