A Delaware coalition that’s calling for an end to corporate tax loopholes will hold a discussion group at the Appoquinimink Library on Wednesday night.
The Delaware Americans for Democratic Action is inviting residents of the Middletown-Odessa-Townsend community to attend the 7 p.m. discussion, which will feature talks on the $85 billion in federal spending cuts that took effect March 1 – otherwise known as sequestration – is affecting the M.O.T. area, as well as federal corporate tax reform.
Delaware ADA is a local partner of the Americans for Tax Fairness organization, a political advocacy group lobbying to repeal the so-called Bush tax breaks and an end to tax breaks and subsidies for major corporations.
The state organization marched in the Olde Tyme Peach Festival parade on Saturday, carrying signs that stated “Public Investment is Peachy” and “Corporate Tax Dodging is the Pits.”
The group also encouraged festival goers to mark dollar bills with a stamp that read, “This is $1 more than G.E. or BofA pay in taxes.”
The Delaware ADA’s partners include SEIU 32BJ, Council 81 AFSCME, the Delaware Alliance for Community Advancement, Progressive Democrats for Delaware and the state chapter of the National Organization for Women.
