Republicans want to level the playing field: FLAT TAX ON COPORATIONS!
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 10:16 PM by Cronus Protagonist
Let them all pay the same percentage of profits. Why does Boeing get deals that small mom and pop run corporations don't have access to? I say I'm sure the Republicans will get behind a partisan effort to do this for two reasons:

1/ They're on the side of small business
2/ They want taxes to be fair and evenly balanced
3/ They've have flat tax for people on the platform
4/ In the marketplace, corporations are people

I'm sure this would win bipartisan support.

Right?

4. Sounds good to me!
And since it's fair and flat, the republicans should love the idea too!

3. No, 'Pugs want a flat tax on everybody,
After all, everything about 'Pugs is about regression.

5. Great!
Exxon Mobil can pay 25% just like the rest of us. Surely they would want to pay their fair share and support the country, being so patriotic and all that.
