Corporate tax cuts going toward share buybacks

Tax cut scoreboard: Workers $6 billion; Shareholders $171 billion


"The $65 billion gain is nonetheless real – rest assured of that. But only $36 billion came from Berkshire’s operations. The remaining $29 billion was delivered to us in December when Congress rewrote the U.S. Tax Code."

So Our Plan?

Investigate the fairest, most equitable, tax plan available for all, not just donors and corporations. We will utilize experts in the field and take everyone's input to achieve what seems to have been unachievable for years, a tax system that works for all. 

​​​​​​​​​Taxes:  ​Progressive, Flat or Fair?  

UPDATE  for 2020 Campaign - We will reverse the Tax Plan that gave Corporations and Donors huge tax cuts and gave everyone else a small (if any)tax cut.

What about Corporate Taxes?

7 things you absolutely must know about corporate taxes

So why not tax them as PEOPLE?   My stance on taxes is I don't know until I can work with the OMB and some of our nation's leading economist and tax experts (not corporate lobbyists)  I can promise fairness, transparency and a willingness to try to do what is right for YOU.

​​Corporate Welfare Harms Corporations

One constant about taxes. They are always raised 'for the kids' but then moved somewhere else so they can come back and ask for even more money 'for the kids':  When the oil boom went bust, Oklahoma protected drillers and squeezed schools and Why don't we let the school board raise taxes?

I propose we keep our Progressive Tax. Keep the Earned Income Credit in place for the lowest tier.  We don't need to return to a 91% tax rate,  Income tax rates were 90 percent under Eisenhower, Sanders says.  We do need to slightly increase the rate for the top 1%, not to redistribute wealth, but to pay our bills and fix our infrastructure, which will generate jobs.

Lets look at some other's plans: The Striking Contrast Between the Trump and House Republican Tax Plans

Instead of GOP's 12-25-33 rates, perhaps we get the CBO to run the numbers on 10-20-30-40 on a scale of $0-poverty-line, poverty-line+$1 to $60,000, $60,001 to $400,000 and $400,001 and up. Tweak to generate enough revenue to produce income to reduce deficit, in conjunction with reducing the budget where possible.  Remember, will will keep the Earned Income Credit in for low-income families. ​Capital gains and other taxes will be looked at as well to see if those rates need to be adjusted or policies changed.
