Cool how about we take it from all the deadbeat corporations like Amazon that paid no taxes last year? How about we tax the living [expletive] out of the rich like we used to do back when this country was the most prosperous country the world had ever known?

How about instead of this Trump tax cut, which has gone 95% to the richest in this country, we take it all back from them and give it to our teachers and others? or you know use some of it to fix our broken roads, water systems, etc. This country has an immense amount of wealth, it's just locked up in the bank accounts of very few at the top. It's time to liberate it.


Breathe Dreamer, breathe.



I'm not wrong.

Oh poor guy, even if we use his 50% number, which we know is no where near the truth he still has like 90 million. The fact is his accountants and lawyers will get his taxable income down to something like 12-20% which will be better than most people pay. He also talks about inflation there but if he isn't stupid with his money he can beat inflation by 4-8% a year.

Very cool how any day now Amazon will be the first company in human history to be worth more than $1 Trillion and yet the majority of their workers are on food stamps, they pay zero federal taxes, and they have been running a nationwide "The Bachelor but for rapacious business practices" contest in every major American metro area for two years.

Bezos and Musk can crash their rocket ships into each other and burn up over the Atlantic Ocean for all I care. Screw these immoral ego monsters.

I do, doesn't change the fact that we need to push hard to change our tax system so that the freeloaders at the top pay their fair share.

They aren't freeloaders if the tax code lets them get away w/ it legally, all they are doing is taking advantage of the current tax laws. I would do the same damn thing, and I'm sure as a former business owner you would do the same as well.

Blame the government, not the businesses for taking advantage of terrible tax laws.
