On April 15th, thousands of Seattle protesters held a Tax March asking President Trump to finally release his tax returns. While the White House said no one cares about the President’s tax returns, more than 180 communities across the country held marches. In Seattle, the activists had more than tax returns to talk about, including Washington State’s tax code, which is the most upside down in the nation. Low-income families here pay seven times more of their income in taxes than the wealthy. KBCS reporter David Griffith brings us more from the rally held in downtown Seattle.
The grassroots group Indivisible Seattle is focused on blocking President Trump’s agenda at the Federal level. The group has grown from 2 members to over 2,000 members since January 1st, this year. They target our local Members of Congress and Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell. KBCS’s David Griffith reports from one of the group’s gatherings, held in front of Seattle’s Federal Building last week.
