He must have gotten cold today..Cobblestones said:This is probably the absolutely most ignorant post I have read in a long while (and I have read some tea party drivel in the past). It's actually scary, but also not really surprising that such a statement could be made by a conservative accountant.
Can you really not understand why corporations should pay taxes?
Do not corporations benefit from infrastructure, patent law, educated workforce, the legal system, military protections etc? Funny, because I have yet to see a single company headquarter being moved to Somalia.
Now you say that taxes will be pushed over to the consumer? Oh really? So you don't think it just eats into the profit? Funny because if you think your profit should be a guaranteed sum, and to achieve that, cost is simply shifted to the consumer, I really hope you're a monopolist. If not, competition will have sorted you out before you can say 'bailout'.
""CEDAR RAPIDS- Tea Party supporters in Cedar Rapids gathered downtown again on Friday for an annual “Tax Day” rally. But organizers of the Iowa Taxed Enough Already (TEA) groups faced a pretty formidable foe in the weather.
In past years, such Tea Party events in Cedar Rapids drew upwards of a hundred participants to carry signs and listen to speeches. But barely two dozen soggy supporters braved the cold rain and strong winds to take their tax and spending message public along First Avenue N.E. near the Cedar River. A similar noon-hour Tea Party event in Davenport drew a reported seven participants. An event scheduled for the late afternoon in Dubuque got cancelled because of the weather.
