"In 2010, 25 corporations paid their CEOs more and spent more in lobbying expenses than they spent on federal taxes."

Study Finds 25 Top CEOs' Pay Exceeds Corporate Taxes Paid

Interview with Scott Klinger, Institute for Policy Studies associate fellow, conducted by Scott Harris

taxdodging

In response to continuing high unemployment and an anemic economy that threatens to turn into a double dip recession, President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress and the nation on Sept. 8 to propose a $447 billion package of tax cuts and new federal outlays designed to boost consumer spending and create jobs. Prospects for passage of Obama’s jobs legislation appear dim as congressional Republicans oppose the president’s plan to fund the jobs bill by raising taxes on the rich. Specifically, the White House wants to impose new limits on itemized deductions for individuals who earn more than $200,000 a year and families earning more than $250,000, which they expect to generate the $467 billion more than enough of what's needed to fund the new jobs bill.  Story continues

sustainable

The official jobless rate in the U.S. hovers above 9 percent, with the real unemployment rate estimated to be as much as 16 percent. Those grim statistics translate to some 25 million Americans unemployed, underemployed or having given up looking for work. Unemployment is by far the most important issue for a large majority of Americans, but with the election of the GOP-controlled House of Representatives last November, the imposition of austerity measures to reduce the nation’s deficit has until recently been the Number One preoccupation in Washington.  Story continues

International Human Rights Groups Campaign to Stop Georgia Execution of Troy Davis

Interview with Laura Moye, Death Penalty abolition campaign director at Amnesty International USA, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

deathpenalty

Troy Davis is an African American man who's been sitting on Georgia's death row for 20 years. Though no physical evidence linked him to the 1989 murder of police officer Mark Allen MacPhail, nine witnesses testified that he was the killer. Since then, seven of these witnesses have recanted their testimony, declaring that they were pressured by law enforcement to wrongly point to Davis. However, Georgia’s judicial system has chosen to believe only what these witnesses stated on the record during the trial 1991.  Story continues
