Dear HCCN & Transition Towns:
  we all need to know this so we can tell our congresspeople that tax “reform” needs to include having the profitable pay – not just cut the programs many need.

Dear MoveOn member,

A few weeks ago, Senator Bernie Sanders released a list of the 10 companies worst at paying their fair share in taxes. We liked it, and our designer Gabe quickly put it into chart form and put it up on our website.

What happened next was exciting: Tens of thousands of people started sharing the chart on Facebook. Blogs started posting links to it. It began to really blow up—and that gave us an idea: What if we could get this popular chart in front of millions of people today as they’re finishing their taxes?

So here we go: We’re going to try to saturate Facebook with the chart below, so that everyone sees the shameful behavior of these 10 companies. Can you join in? All you have to do is click this button to share it:

Thanks for all you do,

–Peter, Eli, Alicia, Jenine, Gabriel, and the whole Civic Action team
