Former Google Exec, Media Beat Guest Asks President Obama for Higher Taxes

The calls from the rich for higher taxes on the rich continued this week with Doug Edwards, author, former Google marketing and brand management exec, and past Media Beat interviewee.

Edwards attended the LinkedIn town hall that President Obama hosted earlier this week. He took the mike to explain that he used to “work for a small start up down the street here that did quite well” and was able to choose to be unemployed.

He pressed for an end to tax cuts for the wealthiest in the U.S. and asked President Obama directly to raise his taxes. You can watch that video above and catch all three parts of our Media Beat interview with Edwards here.
