RoseAnn DeMoro on the Robin Hood Tax
May 11, 2012
Bill talks to RoseAnn DeMoro, who heads the largest registered nurses union in the country, and will lead a Chicago march protesting economic inequality on May 18. DeMoro is championing the Robin Hood Tax, a small government levy the financial sector would pay on commercial transactions like stocks and bonds. The money generated, which some estimate could be as much as $350 billion annually, could be used for social programs and job creation — ultimately to people who, without a doubt, need it more than the banks do.
DeMoro and her organization, National Nurses United, have an inspiring history of defeating some of the toughest opponents in government and politics.
