Corporations DO NOT pay their fair share - It is supposed to be 35 to 40%, but several pay NO taxes at all. They can go incorporate in Liberia, for all I care - Greedy, unpatriotic bastards. I like the idea of a flat tax, but will settle for the letter of the law.

PS There is exactly ONE political party in the USA - Quit getting played for a chump.
It looks like we are in some agreement. Both political parties are not working in our interest. Bhairitu's idea of a third party makes a lot of sense. In the next presidential election I may vote independent. It's easy to paint taxation with a large brush and to combine notions of individual earned income tax with corporate taxation and the idea of taxing the rich. It's complicated.

The problem with taxing the rich is that when the economy is good politicians love it, but when the economy is poor, they hate it - the instability is not a good thing. In California what is needed is a flat tax rate to help stabilize state revenues, according to U.S. Rep Tom McClintock (R., CA).

/"The working class may be taking a beating from spending cuts used to close a cavernous deficit, Mr. Williams said, but the root of California's woes is its reliance on taxing the wealthy." /

//"Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent. We support the passage of a “Balanced Budget Amendment” to the US Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, not raising taxes."//

/"The kid-glove treatment of corporate tax offenders by both parties is exhibit A in America's shift from a functioning democracy to a nascent oligarchy."/

    The ultra rich use a disproportionate share of the common, and

    a flat tax.

        Otherwise, we will continue to see the middle class
        disappear, and be headed for a second revolution, eventually.

        Part of the issue, is that corporate titans are seen as
        great visionaries and geniuses, instead of simply being true
        to their charter, which is to turn as big a profit, as
        possible, resources and populations be damned. We need real
        leaders, not Warren Buffet and a bunch of unethical
        salesmen, running this country.
