Makes no sense. The general economic consensus is that corporate tax should approach zero, because what you tax you get less of...we want more business/economic growth.
    I want a fair marketplace. I dont' believe our current situation allows for that. We have to work with the system we have, not the one I want.

    Personally, I don't think we should pay Federal Taxes at all. We should pay our states, and our states should pay the federal government.

    Seriously though, you have a problem with the tax code? What are you doing about it? The same people have been in power in this country for at least the last 50 years. (much longer but no need to look further back) Come November a hundred or so million people will go to the booths, and put the same people right back in. Then they are going to go around bitching about how corrupt and stupid politicians are and how much they dislike them. D or R doesnt really matter much. Both parties are working for two things. Money and power.

    It amazes me how many people have a problem with our government, and have a problem with our laws, and keep the same people in office.
    Great assumptions on my voting habits.

    Individuals have the same tax deductions that coporations have.

    Thank you. Although I wasnt referring to any specific person, rather the american voters as a whole.
