YEah I DO have a problem with corporations getting subsidies, I also have a problem with unions and attempts at mandatory wage increases.
Govt. needs to support SMALL business, not large conglomerate corporations, and not individual workers... Small business and free enterprise.
You do it by incentivising small business. You don't subsidize large corporations that already have a business advantage and you don't raise minimum
wage without increasing import tariffs as well, to prevent large corporations from moving operations over seas.
Any time you mention the things that we actually GAVE our government the authority to do like implement import tariffs, they always say, but then
other countries will restrict our exports.
We export GRAIN, they export ELECTRONICS...We can do without their electronics, they CANNOT do without our grain.
You're right, we should strive to help each other, not at the point of a gun where we have no control over WHO we help and WHY we help them.
It absolutely is at the point of a gun, try NOT giving them what they ask and see who shows up at your door (and probably shoots your dog for fun,
while they're there).
It needs to be our individual choice who we help and why we help them.
I, personally, will not donate money to charities, because I was the VP of a 501C3 and know what they can and can't do.
Most are used as tax havens for the rich to be able to buy their jets and cars and buildings with tax free money.
You think Bill Gates donated 40 billion to his charity because he's altruistic??? If you do you're a fool. It so he doesn't pay any taxes on that
40 billion and then doesn't pay taxes on half of the remaining 2.5billion in earnings.
Our income tax structure is #ED....It should have never been implemented in the first place but most assuredly needs to be revamped or go away.
I'm NOT in an upper tax bracket but I STILL rejoice when tax rates are reduced for the higher brackets because it's WROnG...
It's WRONG to tax someone at a higher percentage because they make more of themselves, it de-incentivizes success. That's the opposite of what we
should be doing.
No, if you want a tiered national tax. Implement a tiered national sales tax based on the luxury value of the item being purchased, otherwise you
need a flat tax with a single percentage for ALL workers. Fair share, yeah I LOVE when that is thrown around. Please, LET the rich pay their fair
share, because right now they're paying an infinite amount more than people on welfare and two or three times the precentage of your average worker.
So, PLEASE, let them pay their fair share.
