Wakeupwalmart.com

Hey, folks, got this in e-mail, looks legit, the website certainly is (if you go click the "skip registration" and it takes you into the site). Obviously it's too late to join the protest, but the info is key nonetheless.

If this is all true, we all need to be hammering our elected representatives (as though they listen to us!) and stop shopping at this hole. The numbers are staggering, and such conduct is deplorable.



On April 17, 2007, Tax Day, people all across America will wake up, head down to their local post office, and do what all honest citizens do - pay their taxes.

Sadly, most Americans may not know this, but they will also be paying another tax - the Wal-Mart Tax.

What's the Wal-Mart Tax?

The Wal-Mart Tax is the fact that everyday, because Wal-Mart fails to provide affordable health care, Wal-Mart workers and their families are forced onto taxpayer-funded public health care assistance. Nationally, Wal-Mart's health care crisis and irresponsibility costs taxpayers over $2.5 billion a year.

In addition, Wal-Mart has exploited a bunch of corporate state tax loopholes by setting up fake “shell” companies and pretending they don't own stores that they really do. Wal-Mart's tax scam has helped Wal-Mart avoid $3.39 billion in state taxes between 1999 and 2005.

The Wal-Mart Tax hurts Americans, is wrong, and must stop.

So, on Tax Day, join WakeUpWalMart.com supporters who will be passing out “Stop the Wal-Mart Tax” flyers at post offices all across America.

Please download the “Stop the Wal-Mart Tax” flyer and make copies to hand out to taxpayers.

WakeUpWalMart.com - Stop the Wal-Mart Tax

All across America we will be holding Tax Day actions (or tax day protests, if you will) at local post offices on Tuesday, April 17 with one goal - Stop the Wal-Mart Tax!

The truth is, if we are going to “Stop the Wal-Mart Tax” we need you to join with WakeUpWalMart.com supporters and hand this flyer out to as many taxpayers as you can.

Please download the flyer here:

WakeUpWalMart.com - Stop the Wal-Mart Tax

The real cost to American taxpayers of the Wal-Mart Tax are huge. For example, if Wal-Mart paid the taxes it owed in 2005 we could have provided 318,440 uninsured children with health care coverage, added 9,499 additional police officers to patrol our streets and keep our communities safe, or build new classrooms for 21,963 elementary school students.

When big profitable companies like Wal-Mart don't pay their taxes, we all lose.

So please come out and join us, because together we can stop the Wal-Mart tax and change Wal-Mart and America for the better.

Please download the flyer here:

WakeUpWalMart.com - Stop the Wal-Mart Tax

Together, we can make Wal-Mart pay its fair share for health care and we can stop the Wal-Mart Tax once and for all.

We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday, April 17th, 2007.

Thanks for all that you do,

Paul Blank

They're right. I'll stop shopping at Wal Mart as soon as I stock up on Great Value Laundry detergent, Paper towels, toilet paper, food and such.
