    The GOP can’t have it both ways. They either keep the corporate taxes or legalize marijuana. They can’t have both corporate tax cuts and illegal weed.

    Where do they assume the tax revenues are going to come from.

    Incidentally, this is why prohibition on alcohol was repealed. It was the Great Depression and the country needed the money.

      Thank you for your comment, I had not made that correlation with the repeal of prohibition.

        My grandmother was a strict Prohibitionist. Prohibition passed because women had no rights to their own bodies, labor or fate. They were at the mercy of their husbands, fathers and brothers whims. Think Saudi Arabia today. Or Quiverfull.

        Typically, the lower class working man of the time, often immigrants, would spend his paychecks on alcohol, come home, beat his wife, demand her wages and go drink them, leaving the wife to attempt find food, work to make money to buy food, feed children, pay rent, take in work at night, etc..
        When women DID get the vote, the first thing they did was ban alcohol, thinking it would stop men from drinking their pay, etc…

        If women had had their rights acknowledged by Law, they wouldn’t have been so desperate for a solution.

        Rich people thought it didn’t apply to them.
        We got the income tax, instead.

    The 1 Chart That Reveals Just How Grossly Unfair The U.S. Tax System Has Become- http://goo.gl/44ixM

    CEO-To-Worker Pay Ratio Ballooned 1,000 Percent Since 1950
    The ratio of CEO-to-worker pay has increased 1,000 percent since 1950, according to data from Bloomberg. Today Fortune 500 CEOs make 204 times regular workers on average, Bloomberg found. The ratio is up from 120-to-1 in 2000, 42-to-1 in 1980 and 20-to-1 in 1950. — http://tinyurl.com/cbem3xy

    Report: Firms spent more on CEO pay than taxes
    Twenty-five of the 100 largest U.S. corporations paid their chief executives more than they paid the government in federal income taxes last year, according to a report released Wednesday.
    The nonprofit Institute for Policy Studies says the 25 CEOs averaged $16.7 million in salary and other 2010 compensation. Most of the companies they ran, meanwhile, came out ahead at tax time, collecting tax refunds that averaged $304 million, according to its review of public filings.

    I hope we see a lot more of this in the future. And to Reid and Schumer, I hope you get primaried for your obvious attempts to save your seats by giving in to Republicans. Democrats had better learn that one big reason for their losses is that Democrats aren’t going to come out and vote for Republican-lite candidates. I myself will always vote, and vote Democratic, because I understand the importance of keeping Republicans out of government no matter what, but many will just stay home unless they are motivated to get out and vote.

    I heard that the last time the Republicans controlled The Senate and the House was in the 20’s and we recall what happened on Black Tuesday, Oct 29,1929, that started the Great Depression. Perhaps we should study deeply the root cause of it, learn from it and remember the suffering that they caused and do something to prevent a repeat.

    Give $20 Million to 4 Millionaires and 5 offshore accounts will grow $5 Million richer. Give $20 Million to 100,000 people and 100,000 communities will be infused with $200 each, taxes will be paid, earnings made, profits put back into economy again and benefit far more than 5 people and a team of bankers.

    NOW, is it simple enough for the willingly ignorant to understand?

    Justice-based tax reform is desperately needed and well as shift to capital asset growth financing that frees economic growth from the slavery of “past” savings, and instead require the Federal Reserve to issue interest-free capital credit loans to EVERY citizen that are insurable and repaid out of the FUTURE earnings (savings) the investments.

    The ONLY justification for reducing or eliminating the corporate tax burden on corporations is the stipulation that they are broadly owned, including employees, and pay out fully dividend earnings, which then would be taxed at personal income tax rates. This would effectively abate the use of retained earnings and debt financing, neither of which creates any new owners but instead constantly enriches the value of capital assets owned by the present owners. Instead, new growth should be financed with the issuance of new stock and its purchase by citizens and employees of the corporation. Such purchases can be transacted using insured, inte…
