Lowest tax rates ever= Highest Debt Ever Do Facts even matter anymore?


Why can't we discuss just the basics of finances on the corporate media?

Why are we allowing them to lead the narrative when they are obviously working for the 1%?

3. Our founders intended for Corporations to pay all of our taxes, they benefit from our infrastructure

 


There wasn't supposed to be any income tax.

I just don't understand these tea party types, working to protect corporations, the exact opposite of our founders they pretend to emulate.

2. And it's giving the investor class more capital to ship jobs overseas.

With higher taxes they were more likely to reinvest in domestic production in order to get the tax writeoff.

4. exactly- when taxes are higher, they buy all kinds of stuff as a write off

 


They hire more to lower their total income at the end of the year.

When taxes are higher, they stop hoarding because it is not to their benefit.

This logic is so simple.

The arguments we are having in this country are because of the simplistic, immature, illogical and selfish right wing and their inability to accept truth.

We have to raise our standards and stop accepting this as dialogue.

And it has to start by demanding more of the corporate media,using our public airwaves to lie and distract.

8. can people just answer whether they agree with this?

 



The media has everyone brainwashed into thinking lower taxes will fix the economy.

It is the definition of insane, doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
