US Uncut, the grassroots effort pressuring corporate tax cheats to pay their fair share, is staging actions across America on June 4 against Apple. The movement is demanding the corporation remove its support of the Win America Campaign (WAC), an effort aimed at repatriating $1 trillion in foreign accounts back to America at just a 5% tax rate.
Anger is rising as Americans are being forced to endure brutal budget cuts at both the federal and state-level. US Uncut instead calls for an end to corporate tax avoidance.
“We already got duped once by this hoax of repatriating profits with the “American Jobs Creation Act of 2004″ under Bush,” said US Uncut spokesperson Ryan Clayton, “It didn’t create jobs and only opened the door for tax haven abusers to continue to cheat the system. As the saying goes: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.””
