Protest Targets Tax Breaks for Wealthy

Members of the Florida Consumer Action Network will stage a protest July 30 in front of the historic Vinoy Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida to call an end to tax breaks for persons making more than $250,000 a year. The demonstration comes as Congress is mulling a vote on tax cuts left over from the Bush administration.

Proponents of the protest say passing Obama’s tax plan will protect Americans who make less than $250,000 a year while generating an estimated $68 billion in yearly revenue, or $700 billion over the next decade, from the wealthiest Americans.
