Movie Info

America is in the grip of a societal economic panic. Lawmakers cry "We're Broke!" as they slash budgets, lay off schoolteachers, police, and firefighters, crumbling our country's social fabric and leaving many Americans scrambling to survive. Meanwhile, multibillion-dollar American corporations like Exxon, Google and Bank of America are making record profits. And while the deficit climbs and the cuts go deeper, these corporations, with intimate ties to our political leaders, are concealing colossal profits overseas to avoid paying U.S. income tax. We're Not Broke is the story of how U.S. corporations have been able to hide over a trillion dollars from Uncle Sam, and how six fed-up Americans from across the country, take their frustration to the streets...and vow to make them pay. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for We're Not Broke

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

A well-researched, brightly presented and provocative argument that the U.S. isn't overtaxed and profligate, but rather a paradise for corporate tax cheats.

Top Critic

A documentary about what one lawyer calls 'non-taxation through extraordinary representation.' The movie might make you angry, and if it does, it's succeeded.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Most engaging when breaking out of peeved talking heads mode that delves into One Percent tax dodgers bankrupting the nation, to switch gears into what some activists are trying to do about it.

Audience Reviews for We're Not Broke

We need the political will to change the tax laws to close the loopholes for corporations. Will that happen? It's not clear.

'We're Not Broke' brings to light in spectacular fashion how American billion-dollar multinationals fake Uncle Sam out of trillions of dollars by virtue of obscene tax loopholes and equivocal business practices, it's enraging to say the least.
