Protestors Raise Voice against Bank of America

Posted:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn.- Not even miserable weather could stop a handful of passionate protesters from rallying against the nation's largest bank Saturday.

Protesters gathered outside Bank of America's Murfreesboro branch on the rainy afternoon with a simple message: "I paid my taxes, why doesn't Bank of America?"

Organizers say despite over two-trillion dollars in assets, the bank pays less in taxes than the average American household.

"Because they wouldn't need to cut public education. They wouldn't need to cut public service. They wouldn't need to cut social services if a lot of these banks paid their fair share of taxes," said, Darrell Bouldin of US Uncut.

They say problems because of that lack of tax revenue is being seen and felt In the United States.
