    Funny how you demand proof while making claims you never back up

    - The New York Times
    From your article:

    The Stimulus Package: Tax Cuts for Individuals
    Now, show us the corporate tax cuts contained in the stealfromus package.

    The chart I posted is based on #'s from the IRS. Since you reject facts, I see no point in posting links for you.

    I'll wait for you to post something factual instead

    It should be common knowledge that corporations reporting more less than $50,000 of taxable income pay 15%. Large corporations report a helluva lot more than $50K in taxable income. Maybe you're not as informed as I thought.

    IOW, there are no actual corporate tax breaks in the stealformus package and you were just throwing a strawman in everyone's face in an attempt to defend the stealfromus package. Yes?

    You said that corporate profits were down. I proved that they are at record highs.

    Now you're changing your story to small businesses. Maybe you're not willing to defend your wild claims, as I thought you might be.

    IOW, you are still unwilling to support anything you say with facts. Just more unsubstantiated BS

    You claimed that corporate profits, as in all corporate profits--and yes, small businesses are corporations, too--are at record highs.

    Your own source disproves your claim.

    Well, not all corporations are pulling in near-record profits. "Pre-tax domestic nonfinancial corporate profits" -- that is to say, corporations that sell stuff here and that don't make their money from Wall Street -- are much further from their all-time high.
