Why give it at all??
The main point of this thread is bypassing congress.
That group of globalist scumbags?
How are those "talking points" and how could any sensible person of any political persuasion disagree?
After you're done doing your homework, come back and tell me what percentage of tax revenue the top 1% and the top 10% contributes to the government.
Then tell me how many large companies who create hundreds of jobs, are owned by low-to-middle-class schmucks like yourself, who hardly pay their fair share of this country's tax burden?
Reminds me of what happened to the U.S. boat manufacturing industry several years ago. The pols thought they had an easy target for bringing in more tax revenue, people who purchase new boats. They reasoned someone laying out tens/hundreds of thousands or more for toys wouldn’t balk at a tax that could add an extra several hundred dollars for smaller boats and well into five figures for the bigger vessels. They got enough money to buy a boat, they’ll pay the tax.
A great idea that backfired stupendously. New boat sales plummeted, boatbuilders laid off scads of workers, and some companies ended up closing their doors for good as a result. Yeah, the consumers very likely could have afforded the new tax but simply refused to play the pols’ game instead.
Nice analogy but it has one problem
They don’t all eat equally. When the food comes, the rich guy takes 90 percent of the food while the other nine fight over the remaining 10 percent
Actually, congress is incapable of doing anything
They say people are born equal and nothing can be further from the truth.
The ones who paid 14 or more would not be sitting with the ones who paid 2 bucks. Do you understand how stupid this scenario is.
The point is that when Obama was accused of doing the same, rightwing hypocrites screamed bloody murder.
