The Political is Personal Film Series: We're Not Broke

The U.S. is in the grip of a societal economic panic.  Lawmakers claim that the country is broke, as they cut budgets and lay off teachers, police, and firefighters, crumbling our social fabric and leaving many Americans scrambling to survive.  Meanwhile, corporations such as Exxon, Google, and Bank of America are making record profits.  And while the deficit climbs and the cuts go deeper, these corporations – with intimate ties to our political leaders – are concealing colossal profits overseas to avoid paying U.S. income tax.  This engaging documentary is the story of how U.S. corporations have been able to hide over a trillion dollars from Uncle Sam, and how seven fed-up Americans from across the country, take their frustration to the streets, and vow to make the corporations pay their fair share.  This program is free and open to the public.  For more information, visit smpl.org or call 310-458-8600.
