Billionaires vs Teachers: Whose Side Are You On?


Brave New Films

The top 25 hedge fund managers make more than all kindergarten teachers in the country combined. These investors make millions - sometimes billions - of dollars investing borrowed money in hopes of realizing large capital gains. But what is most absurd is that these millionaires and billionaires pay a lower tax rate than kindergarten teachers -– and very likely a lower rate than YOU!!

SIGN THE PETITION: http://www.bravenewfilms.org/billionairesvsteachers_petition

We wanted to know what kindergarten teachers thought about this insane disparity, so we talked to them.

And the consensus is clear – this must end!

So together we are calling on all 2016 presidential candidates to commit to closing the carried interest loophole within their first 100 days of office.

If we closed this tax loophole and taxed hedge fund managers like we tax teacher and every other American, we would generate $17.7 billion over a decade.

This is money that could go to public education – and into normal working American’s tax breaks!

Join us to call on all 2016 presidential candidates to commit to closing the carried interest loophole within their first 100 days of office.
