30 companies had a combined profit of $163+ billion, but paid less than zero taxes. I.e.,

they had a tax liability of MINUS 10.6 billion. The American middle-class gets
hammered. And we, the American people are basically doing nothing about it.
In fact, few of us even know anything of the above. I certainly didn't.

And there are thousands of companies doing the same thing. If the super-rich
paid the same rate of taxes as the middle-class did, there wouldn't have been
a national debt to begin with.

So, are we going to let this nonsense and insanity go on forever?

It's high time that we, the middle-class, banded together in a united front
and DEMAND that the super-rich pay the same rate of taxes that we do.
And we must keep on making this demand loud and clear until it actually
gets done.
