But to justify the government taking 35% of the same pot of money at one level and then wanting it to take 40% again at the second level is frankly sick IMHO.

    That you think the government should tax say a million dollars 350K and then the remaining 650K at 40% meaning that of the million earned by the company the government taxes 350K and then 240+K again is disgusting
    You wanna know what is absolutely sick Turtle? Sick to the point of inducing violent vomitting? Discriminatory tax rates which benefit the riches people in our society more than anybody else. And people who defend them out of pure selfish greed because they want what they want and they like it that way and screw anybody else who dare raise the spectre of taxing all money coming into a person pocket as income according to the same rate schedule.

    Now that is disgusting.

    Apparently the concept of an American citizen advocating for a national tax policy is foreign to you?

    I already did. Every time money changes owners its subject to taxation. A service company who handles payroll DOES NOT own the money or get in in payroll for themselves. Turtle has no analogy to stand upon since it is false false false.

    One has nothing to do with the other. But then, you know that because you have been educated on it previously.
