The middle class and the poor need the tax breaks, not the Oligarchs at the top. There are property taxes, income taxes, alcohol taxes, license plate taxes, utility taxes, tobacco taxes, gasoline taxes and more. We who are at the bottom of the food chain, who can least afford it, are taxed the most.
As everyone should know by now Amazon pays nothing, zero dollars in federal taxes for 2018. They also made $11,000,000,000 in profit in 2018. Why can’t we, the many, have Bezos’s tax accountants and lobbyists? Wouldn’t that be great if we could just pad the pockets of a few politicians from our vast wealth and save way more in taxes? Doesn’t that sound illegal, unethical and wrong? Well it’s the real truth. They keep saying the trickle down is coming. Just wait, it’s coming.
We all know the truth is we are never going to get ours because those on top are too busy getting theirs. American government is now only concerned with the needs of billionaires, Oligarchs, and professional liars. And do you think they got there by playing by the rules? Hell no. They got there by stealing, lying and conniving! They look out for number one while telling you that you’ll get yours as well! Lie, lie, lie! You never will.
The only way out is to vote in measures like a raise in the top marginal tax rate. We need to bring it back to where it was before Ronald Reagan began lowering it in 1981. America is in multiple crisis and the funds are needed. Bring it back and bring it back now!
