Advertisements [?]
increase revenue.

Marcia Blackburn stated on 'Meet the Press" today the republican talking point that "Corporations don't pay taxes, people do".

What they claim is that if you raise taxes on Corp's, they simply pass the costs on to consumers.

IF TRUE, we can eliminate the personal income tax, and only tax corporations!

I call it my "No Tax" plan.

By only taxing corporations, we free up the IRS to really go after these bastards!

We can use their own talking point against them and usurp their anti-tax base.
