"Corporations and Democracy" on tax fairness

Tom and Toni in the KZYX studio
Even before this week's Senate hearings drew attention to Apple's tax practices, most US taxpayers were well aware that a well-connected and well-to-do minority have tweaked the tax code to ensure that they can keep proportionally more of their money than ordinary citizens. "Corporations and Democracy," hosted by Mendocino AfD'ers Tom Wodetzki and Toni Rizzo, asks Citizens for Tax Justice's Robert McIntyre about some of the politicking behind the US tax system. Who pays to play, who benefits, and how can we establish a fairer tax code? In the second half of the show, Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap of Move to Amend brings listeners up to date on the campaign to amend the US Constitution to end corporate access to constitutional rights and to establish that election spending is not protected as free speech under the First Amendment.

"Corporations and Democracy" is broadcast by KZYX-FM public radio. Listen to an .mp3 of the show here.
