I know, you think I bring this up too often. That economic inequality is going to destroy our nation.
You’ve read about my concept to make corporate taxes more fiar and inclusive for years. No, I am not running for President. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have better ideas, ones that our government (and other world governments) should adopt to stop the erosion of capital (and tax revenue!) from the shores of the countries from which these funds were developed.
Here, we go. It’s the heart of election season (only because we have made the primary season so long- and have it run right into the national election). Only, this time, there’s enough talk (but still no action) that maybe we- that’s you and me, folks- can goad our do-nothing Congress into doing something to back up everyone’s polemics.
Despite what Tim Montgomerie claimed in his Wall Street Journal piece (discussed last week), the facts are that there real problems exist in America- and the world over. We are not deluded with our thinking that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer or that corporations are evading their financial responsibility to their employees and to our communities.
I was reading a series of complaints by some pretty small offshoot organizations that are getting their dose of publicity. For one, I heard about it’s parent- NARAL- the National Association for Repeal of the Abortion Laws. The other claims to be a group of unions (Working Families Party) that has electoral power- results for which I can see no evidence. And, in this case, neither seems particularly powerful- unless you count 8 protesters as a major event.
