If you've ever wondered why there's money for bank bailouts but none for schools, or think it's nuts to give tax breaks to oil companies swimming in record profits,this movie's for you!
In just seven minutes, Annie busts the big lie that the United States - the wealthiest country in the world and a country in which the wealthiest among us are doing exceptionally well - is incapable of paying our bills, let alone investing in a more sustainable and fair economy.
The truth is,our country's not broke!But wearemaking some pretty dumb choices.
In the new movie, Annie lays out a common sense argument for shifting billions in government spendingawayfrom the ailing 'dinosaur economy' andtowardinvestments in the 21st Century green economy.
You know, the things we all want and almost every candidate promises us: great schools, a healthy environment, clean energy and good jobs.
Wresting our money away from the dinosaur economy and winning investments in a better, more sustainable future is going to require some serious citizen muscle.
That's whywe're also launching aCommunity of Actiontodayto recruit tens of thousands of us to speak up for smart government investments - in renewable energy, safer materials, zero waste, and more. Once a month, we'll throw our weight behind an important campaign, or visit our Representatives or even make a public art project. Then we'll let you know what we accomplished together.
