Im waiting for your socialist self to explain to me how RAISING taxes and having the highest corporate tax in the world in a benefit to the average worker. Ill watch some paint dry while you desperately search for an answer.
Well, your brethren understand, approve, of redistribution. If more taxes are collected (which they of course want from upper middle earners via the "fair tax", but that is an aside) they can be put into EITC.Im waiting for your socialist self to explain to me how RAISING taxes and having the highest corporate tax in the world in a benefit to the average worker.

Oh, by the way, we are middling when it comes to EFFECTIVE corp taxes......the more you know!
Being a CEO for a large company typically pays millions of dollars. Most people could retire if they had a net worth of just a few millions dollars (maybe five million to retire quite comfortably). If the job of corporate CEO was so horrible, then most CEOs would retire after just a year or two or three, because they could afford to retire. But they don't, most CEOs remain CEOs until they are old folks, which indicates to me that they ENJOY their jobs.
I don't know that many fry cooks actually enjoy being a fry cook that they would keep being a fry cook if they had a net worth of millions of dollars.
Thus I being a fry cook, is a job that is less desirable than being a CEO, regardless of the income level.
The next step in logic is to conclude that fry cooks are significantly underpaid, and CEOs are overpaid.
But we don't really like logic do we? Political rhetoric is much better than logical thinking.
