Union will push tax at G-8:
The nation's largest nurses union will call for a tax on Wall Street institutions at a march and rally in Chicago the day before the city hosts the G-8 and NATO summits. Chuck Idelson of National Nurses United says thousands of nurses and activists will take part in the demonstration May 18. He says they'll call on world leaders to adopt a so-called "Robin Hood" tax on major trading by banks and other financial institutions. The goal would be to raise money for revitalizing the economies of the United States and other G-8 nations. The rally will feature musician Tom Morello, who performs solo as the Nightwatchman and was a member of Rage Against the Machine. The G-8 and NATO summits will be May 19 to 21.
