Corps Making Over A Billion Should At LEAST Pay The Same Min. Tax Rate As Middle Class Taxpayers!

by

Republicans claim that Corporations are people. So why are the Democrats not using an Alternative Minimum Tax Rate for Super-Rich corporations making MORE THAN A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR at the same tax rate as middle class taxpayers? As it is, the current corporate tax rate of 21% is 1% LESS than the tax rate of a middle class person making 40,525 per year. Those middle class taxpayers pay 22%.

Instead the Democrats are settling for 15%, which is just 3% more than a person in poverty making less than 10,000 per year.  Are we really supposed to get excited that these super rich corporations making over a BILLION will pay the same rate as people in poverty!! Really?

To put this current standard corporate tax rate of 21% that these super rich corps are not even paying in perspective, the top Corp. rate was 46% in 1980, before Reagan’s tax RATE cuts on the super rich caused a radical decline in the middle class, and caused radical deficits, debt, and interest payments on that GOP debt.
