That's cute little response Norm, but you're still not answering my question. This has nothing to do with the Liberals. All I've heard from Republicans for decades is corporate America needs tax cuts, and less government interference and they'll be prosperity for all. So, now that the richest 1% have gotten richer than they've ever been before....when is it going to trickle down???
Be realistic bill. Anti corporate rhetoric gets you what? Higher prices? Unavailable products? What do you get out of revenge against corporations? You may even work for one. You certainly are enabled to invest in one or many.
Think about this. Corporations pay taxes, and pass the costs on to you. Actually corporations don't pay taxes, people do, you and me.
It is not likely that rich getting richer is going to change, other than a State takeover of all assets, such as the Soviet takeover of Russia.
There are two ways of earning money. You work for it, or your money works for it. You can combine the two.
There is one way of becoming rich, which is to save and invest part of your earnings. Let your money work for you.
I have no favoritism for corporations, nor do I have envy of them. If a corporation produces a better good or service, I'll buy it. If that better widget comes from a sole proprietor, I'll buy it from him.
Thing is, that taxing corporations simply increases prices, and punishes those who invest.
I suspect that if you are truthful, you will see a whole lot of trickling down going on.
