The California Federation of Teachers (CFT), AFT, AFLCIO, has released an animated video narrated by Ed Asner that lays out the case for fair taxation. The union urges Congress to repeal Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. “Following the decisive victory of Prop 30 in California, this video promotes a fair tax system to fund America’s priorities,” said CFT President Joshua Pechthalt. “The best way to build a better American education system and protect the social safety net is by asking those who can most afford it to pay their fair share in taxes, so that educators will be better positioned to help our students achieve their dreams.”

Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale, with animation by award-winning artist Mike Konopacki, was written and directed by Fred Glass for the California Federation of Teachers. The 8-minute cartoon can be viewed here.
