I would change the Rekochlicans talking point to, We have a tax problem, not a spending problem. Believe and say the exact opposite of what Rekochlicans say. How about a mandatory minimum corporate tax similar to citizens alternative minimum tax? seems fair to me. Make these corporations pay at least something for the services they use, roads, bridges etc.
The republican plan says, Lets say I go to my boss and say gee boss the cost of gas and food and everything keeps going up, I was wondering if you could lower my pay to help me out?........

1. There's already a minimum tax for coprorations.
Form 4626.

It just doesn't apply to very many of them.

2. It's not that we paid More in Taxes
But that WE had to see $3.2 Billion drained out of Our tax money go into their "Personal Corporate Welfare Fund" and out of the programs We depend upon to survive.

GE you are one of the most vile of all US Tax Funded Welfare Recipients. Nothing more. You literally Leach off hungry, sick, women/mothers, elderly, kids and most vulnerable poor for personal gain.
You disgust me.

The poor who receive any public funded benefits are hereby known as the Unwilling Philanthropists who benefit the US Corporate Welfare Programs.
