    Did I? Or is it you just don't comprehend?

    No, but you assume they think like you. Very evident in many of the post as you assume others are just repeating propaganda, like you do, instead of actually thinking for themselves. It's called projection, you do it all the time.

    If only the $2 trillion would trickle down! But hey even if our tax laws are reduced (even tho we have a pretty damn low effective corporate tax rate), would be reduced it would do little to the economy. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Who can blame them in this age of corporate demonization...
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Lol, even when trickle down is demonstratably proven to be a failure and nothing more than nonsense, people still come out of the woodwork to defend it.

    Government is too big. over taxes, and should be cut into about a third.
    Another post inadvertently proving that "trickle down" is a joke and why it cold never and has never worked.

    Why are companies moving out of that state and into friendlier tax states?

    Do you suppose that our tax policies as a nation are doing the same basic thing?

    Think on it......
    Other states are luring corporations with benefits like "no taxes for 10 years" and other such things. Then after those 10 years the corporations flee overseas.

    It doesn't assume anything if you understand what the data represents. Most people don't, so it helps to put things in perspective.

    When people hear the world 'Corporation,' they think of Walmart, McDonalds, Apple, Microsoft, Exxon, Cisco, and all of the other large caps that are supposedly making all of our lives miserable. Most Corporations are not like that. If anything, considering that Corporations are people to, they are the 1%.

    Considering that we have effective tax rates for individuals making a particular amount of income, the same should be considered for Corporations in that regard.
