Dear Senator Sanders,

I have an honest query.

Raising taxes on big businesses will result in;

Lowering wages and services for workers
Lay-offs
Unemployment
Companies moving overseas.
Higher costs for goods and services offered by the companies.

It's been shown and proved over time, this isn't something new.

How does that benefit us, the middle class workers who will be directly impacted by this?

Kindest regards,

(name redacted)

Unless he sent along some crypto "donation" with his note, I'm sure big bern won't even bother.

...all of the above are actually what Democrats want.

They talk a good game but look at the past "performance" and the desired "results" 😎

I think you should do it.

I think he's a nice enough guy that he'll actually take the time to reply and educate you. And then you should post the reply!

I don't see DC throwing his money away in that manner, but it would be interesting to see the response, maybe even worth it, but if you are that invested you may as well go all the way, some might say proof of a written response that could answer a hell of a question.

Well Bernie is. Or like George Thorogood, I drink alone

YEA with nobody else. You know when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself (with me and my good budd-Wieser).

FoxNews held a Town Hall this evening, featuring BERNIE SANDERS.

The audience was surprisingly WELL BALANCED. Totally different from what you see on Corrupt News Network (CNN) "Town Halls".

(PART 1)


(PART 2)

I don't like Bernie's economic ideas, but his tenacity and rock-solid belief system is admirable.

Well the taxes have been cut for big business.

The corporations have shown good faith in that by bringing back jobs.

That said it appears most still use offshore tax havens. As with the Amazon deals, the logic is that at least the jobs have your average Joe pay taxes while the corporation dodges taxes.

I don't like socialism or corporate socialism.

The extremes of both sides have proven to dick down the middle class.... Now turn your head and cough 😉

I think the off shore tax thing was addressed in the new tax laws.

(January 2, 2018) U.S. companies will pay billions in tax on offshore cash piles

U.S. multinational companies are preparing to pay hundreds of billions of dollars in tax on profits they made overseas in the last 30 years.
New American tax rules mean firms can no longer avoid paying tax on past international profits by keeping the money outside the United States. They must pay tax whether they bring this cash back to the U.S. or not.


Noticing the Democrats have all but stopped "talking" about the off shore thing.

They must have been all for it orrr..........😎 GULP

t here's a loophole to it.

Either way, they're getting tax breaks for new large operations from states and localities... And manage to mitigate their 8-14% taxes federally through subsidies.

It's a mixed bag. I'm not saying it's worse now than before, they just changed the packaging. Same great flavor, bold new look.

I think for the most part bernie is a fool, but I give him credit for bucking the ridiculous leftist trend of "open borders".

Sure, he got railroaded and then sold out, but he's not a complete lemming like the rest of the DNC field.

Still would never wish for him to have even an ounce of the power of the presidency, but I'll throw him a bone on that one.

Why? Most of those businesses have the money to pay the tax, they'd just take a small hit to their profits. They'd still be in the positive, just not as much.

What? The numbers are all that matter. Everything else is spent to get that profitability number higher, as high as possible. The stock value has to go up, and more importantly, turning a small, average or decent profit doesn't mean anything.

Only 150 million to feed back into the business that a surplus of 6 billion. Competitors turned 234 million and 376 million respectively, your company is a loser along with your executive team. When they hangout wherever they do, peers will poke fun at them about it, they wont have the spirit, feel like winners.

I agree with DBC and you Roxor. If we raise taxes on the corporations in the current situation we have then everything DBC says will happen.
The problem is the combination of a company's performance(quarterly profits) being tied to Executive' salaries with the stock market trading value. With this current situation; there is little care for the actual employees doing the labor for the higher ups; the stock market is the thing that is going to make them the big money. The lower employees on the proverbial totem pole can't afford the stock options( they have to purchase, not given) offered because they make barely enough to make ends meet. How do you fix that?
