    Its really simple. You take 5% of all corporation profits and deposit it into every single Americans bank account at the end of each month. Americans turn around and put that 5% right back into the best corporations that are worth shopping at. This becomes a tax for bad corporations and a boon for good corporations. Eventually all the bad corporations die. The better the economy the more Americans get paid and can turn around and spend it right back into the economy. This can make it so that even the homeless become members of the economy!

    This might turn the ultra rich into putting their money into investments only but eventually they have to get on board the corporate froth train or the world will move on without um.

    5% peoples tax on corporations. Paid DIRECTLY to the people's pesonal bank account each month. No political skimming. No reroute of funds for "emergencies". Its THE PEOPLE's. Period.

    I mean they are able to build their own personal froth funds on us by demanding mandatory health insurance and mandatory car insurance, inflating the prices for much less work. So why dont we do it to them?

You sitting on the sidelines while we lose this countries middle class and increase of the poor because all the new wealth going to the top is against the best interest of your country. Do you get this, no one deserves it all.
    No one has it all so that logic is flawed. Those that do have a lot have it because they did earn it or inherit it for the most part.

    Everything is wrong with this. First you are taking money from people for no reason. You are giving money to people for no reason. Then you are assuming that people will spend the money on "good corporations". Good business fail every day because they cannot compete with the bad ones. People will shop where it is cheap. All your plan does is give people free stuff from large corporations.

    It appears that only recessions significantly change that trend and that the US is not the only nation showing that trend.

    Who cares those corporations dodge taxes and dick us all the time. Its our turn. The people need boost and we cant trust the government to spend our taxes right. So the people need a direct tax going direct to their bank account as a check and balance for modern times.

    We have Government. We really just need a fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage and unemployment compensation for being unemployed in our at-will employment States.

    Sure we can. They do it to us ALLLLL the damn time. And for all these HUGE corporations that end up paying 0$ in taxes.... It needs to be upped to 5% directly to the people. This is the only logical way to redistribute wealth. Small mom and pop shops are exempt but all corporate entities are taxed an unnegotiable 5%. Maybe this will lead corporations to establishing Co-ops with locals instead of just flushing them out of the market! They could even accept a monthy due for the mom&pops to be a part of the Co-op. All this will trickle money BACK TO THE PEOPLE.
