NPR’s “All Things Considered” Talks Taxpayer Receipt
NPR
On Friday, April 15, NPR host Robert Siegel interviewed David Kendall on the idea of a tax receipt on the show “All Things Considered.” Kendall and co-author Ethan Porter, contributing editor at Democracy, outlined their idea in our Spring 2011 Issue [“Seeing Where The Money Went,” Issue #20].
In the interview, Kendall says:
Who knows how much of our tax dollar went to develop clean energy or reduce our dependence on foreign oil? You know, that’s just one of the reasons we feel disconnected from our government, and we think a tax receipt would help give people an idea where their tax dollars go.
