"WE'RE NOT BROKE"

Tuesday, October 30, 7 pm
Marquee Theater, Union South, 1308 W. Dayton St., Madison

Join Director Karin Hayes and Bruce Speight of WISPIRG for a discussion of the issues raised in the film immediately following the screening.

WE’RE NOT BROKE tells 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.

“Kicking assets and taking names, ‘We’re Not Broke’ gets in the face of deficit hawks and budget cutters with a well-researched, brightly presented and provocative argument that the U.S. isn’t overtaxed and profligate, but rather a paradise for corporate tax cheats.” — John Anderson, Variety

Co-sponsored by The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, WISPIRG, the Center for Media and Democrac, and the Wisconsin Wave.
