Rob Black’s Winners and Losers: Taco Bell giving away free $1.50 tacos

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — On today’s edition of Rob Black’s Winners and Losers, our financial expert Rob Black and KRON 4’s Mark Danon talk about Taco Bell giving away free tacos.

Taco Bell is giving away free Doritos Locos Tacos on Tuesday from 2 to 6 p.m. The fast-food chain promised in May to give away the food if an away team “steals” a win during the NBA Finals. Each customer can pick up one free taco, typically priced at $1.49.

When Janet Yellen, the Federal Reserve chair, faces off with members of Congress on Tuesday, the surprise factor might be lacking. Then again, maybe not. Yellen’s semi-annual testimony could be a snoozer. Why? Yellen had a wide-ranging question-and-answer session last week with reporters after the Fed’s two-day meeting broke up.

America is slipping backward, if you buy the angry rhetoric from this year’s presidential campaign. The rich are getting richer, the middle class can barely make it and the ranks of the poor are swelling. Except the numbers tell a somewhat different story.
