Congressman, we pay all the taxes we owe!
What a disgusting show during Apple CEO’s “visit” to Congress. Maybe in my lifetime there’ll be a tax code where everyone is taxed the same. As much as that’s regressive on the poor, the “rich” — individuals and companies — don’t pay a dime so I see it as a good trade off. I get pissed everytime I hear about large corporations not paying any taxes especially under the guise of “creating jobs”. Really?!? How is creating a service job at the high-end auto dealership, or at Starbucks or the fancy beauty parlor creating “decent” jobs?!? WOW. Talk about taxation without representation!
It isn’t just corporations, and the Apple CEO did say it was proof the corporate tax structure needs to change so they DO have to pay more in taxes on their PROFITS.
Pass the Fair Tax
It a shame the top 1% pay 36% of the taxes collected. And if you are going to tax business they are leaving the country so how does that help us when they take the jobs away and we have less jobs and less taxes collected.
It is your Congress people who continue to endorse this BS but generally you keep sending them back to Washington. I guess you get what you vote for.
