Once in awhile we do hear corporations whining their taxes are too high, but for people like mittens, who can shuffle investments overseas and not have to pay taxes, it's no problemo for people like him.

    Working poor usually use that money from EIC's and put it back into the economy by purchasing things, which is another thing you and mittens alike fail to understand.
    First, corporations pay little, or no real tax when in the bottom line they pass along those rates to the consumer through higher retail pricing. So when you 'anti Corp' people start bleeting about soaking these corporations I have to shake my head and realize that you know very little of how bisiness works.

    As for saying that the EIC recipient puts that money into the economy, you're right, bit don't represent that these people pay taxes when they don't and I showed you how that was true.

    Purposely divisive leftist perpetuatjions to push an agenda built on envy, and the false narrative of " disparity ".

    All because they have absolutely nothing substantial to run on. Their policies can't stand on their own merits so they invent these class struggles.

    Trying to rope in the useful idiots who actually think Government should be the final arbiter of whats " fair " and " equitable ".
    While I don't believe that the government can or should be the final arbiter in what is "fair" and "equitable" can you honestly say there is not a drastic divide between the 99% and the 1%.

Lots of times they expand their production or product line.................which means more employment.
    Which equals more minimum wage jobs.

    What serves your need for politics? Everyone needs to be a right winger?

    There is a vast disparity in the effort, and risk as well.

    Why is this important? There are social programs for everyone and many opportunities to make more money through education and hard work. What more do you want?

    One can be compassionate without being unrealistic or destructive.
