No Matter What Happens: Don't Tax The Rich (An Animated Fairy Tale)

Narrated by Ed Asner, "tax the rich" is an 8 minute video about how we arrived at this moment of poorly funded public services and widening economic inequality. Things go downhill in a happy and prosperous land after the rich decide they don't want to pay taxes anymore. They tell the people that there is no alternative, but the people aren't so sure. This land bears a startling resemblance to our land. For more info, www.cft.org.

Animation by Mike Konopacki. Written and directed by Fred Glass for the California Federation of Teachers.
