since it doesn’t bring in any money anyway…
can we eliminate this tax that so distorts incentives and end the charade that corporations pay taxes? Finally recognize that it’s really owners, workers and consumers who actually pay the tax?

Or do we keep it in place, thus providing full employment for lobbyists and crooked Congressmen?

You probably should’ve presented with comment.

Doesn’t matter what kind of person you are…

They are lying through their teeth and stealing from our children via deficit funding of subsidies and tax cuts. Now they want to steal directly from us via raiding the Social Security trust fund.

And the media does not challenge them on their lies.

Put it this way: the lobbyists are just doing their jobs. The media are not.

We just don’t believe the nonsense they and their Legislators pour into sound bites.

Indeed, there’s a lot of that going around already. For the reductio ad absurdum version, see the recent Cohen-Levy/Assor conviction for tax fraud. The scandal isn’t what Cohen-Levy and Assor did that was illegal. The scandal is how close what they did was to being legal.

That said, I don’t really see the point of a corporate tax. Just treat dividends and capital gains as regular income, and adjust the tax brackets, in my opinion.
