    This is a fascinating idea. Our biggest economic problem is stagnant wages. Could this be an answer?

    Update: September 6, 2018: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders on Wednesday introduced a bill that would tax corporations with more than 500 employees for the full amount employees receive in government assistance. The bill's title, "Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies Act," or "Stop BEZOS," is an open jab at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Sanders had previously criticized Amazon after a study found that some fulfillment center employees relied on a federal food assistance program. Sanders' criticism drew a heated response from Amazon, which prompted another detailed critique from Sanders' office, one that included testimonials from Amazon employeesabout working conditions.

    Considering federal aid and fed govt regulation of some businesses is unconstitutional, it sure doesnt seem like this bill is, does it?

    I’m not sure. What part of the constitution? Taxes are constitutional.

    OMG lol
    I guess its perfectly constitutional to tax all gun grabbers at 100% right?
    I guess its perfectly constitutional to tax all persons that dont suck their rep in DCs dick every morning.
    Go read the Constitution and get back with me. Maybe then you will understand it.

    I do not like it. The Sanders idea renders large corporations some kind of PATERNALISTIC
    ORGANIZATION. It actually confers POWERS
    on persons who control large businesses over the
    personal lives of the members of the FAMILIES
    of their employees. To me it is a weird kind of legal
    enslavement------something like SERFDOM
