¿Qué significó el 15 de abril para usted? Bueno, por un lado, era el día límite para rendir su declaración de impuestos. Aunque para muchos pueda representar el muy común ritual norteamericano de entregar (a regañadientes) al gobierno sus ingresos, los que se ha ganado trabajando duramente, para nosotros en Unidos por una Economía Justa (United for a Fair Economy – UFE), es una oportunidad. Muy simplemente, es una oportunidad de hablar acerca de por qué los impuestos (y el crucial sector público, para el cual proporcionan una base y un sustento constante) son importantes.

Very simply, it’s an opportunity to talk about why taxes (and the critical public sector for which they provide a foundation and ongoing sustenance) are important.

Ezra Klein of the Washington Post calls it "perhaps the single best economic speech of his presidency." The folks on Fox News were whining about "redistribution." Picking up a cab in Baltimore the next morning, the first thing the driver asked me was whether I saw the President's speech… He loved it. However one ranks it, Pres. Obama's speech on Wednesday nailed it, calling economic inequality the "defining challenge of our time."
