Dear MoveOn member,
You'd think that a proposal to make mega-rich hedge fund managers pay at least as much in taxes as, say, teachers or police officers would be a no-brainer, right?

But, with Wall Street executives going ballistic, even some Democrats are getting nervous about closing the "hedge fund loophole" that lets these wealthy investors—many of whom are big campaign contributors—pay less in taxes than the rest of us. 
Click below to see a chart showing how outrageous this system is and to get the phone numbers for your members of Congress so you can tell them it's time to close the loophole.


See the chart

Thanks for all you do.
