Friday, May 18, nurses from across the country and guest Tom Morello converged on Chicago despite efforts by Mayor Rahm Emanuel to prevent them from gathering in Daley Plaza. Nurses' message was too important to hold back; Heal America! Tax Wall Street.
Nurses are promoting a Robin Hood Tax, which is a small tax on financial transactions that would generate more than 350 billion dollars a year to help heal our economy. Instead of more money for Wall Street, why not money for schools, retirees, the poor, healthcare and more. Nurses know the way is to Heal America, Tax Wall Street!
