Well It Looks Like If Medicare and Medicad
Are Increased It Would Hurt The Low Income
People As Well Those On SSI, SS Disability
And Those Whom Have Very Little Retirement
Social Security, Because They Had Jobs That
Were Before Social Security Then With
The Jobs They Had After Social Security
Gives Them Very Little.

And The Question Is What Will Said Peolpe
Do With What Money They Will Have Left To
Live On, What Medicines Will They Give Up,
What Foods Will They Choose, Rent? Well
That Go Up?

Mr Griffith, sorry to burst your bubble. But no corporation, company, or business while they are in operation pays ANY tax. It's the end user, the individual that pays all the tax. Companies are just the collection agency.

Do you really fail to understand the taxes paid for by a company are figured into the purchase price of an item? Any tax, fee or levy assessed to a company is just passed down the line until ultimately an individual pays for it.

That's what Democrats do. They say they are raising tax on companies, when really they are raising the taxes YOU pay.

IF Democrats really want to raise the taxes on the uber-rich? Chop all the loopholes and quit trying to tax companies. Chop all deductions other than a deduction for each individual and a base deduction for health care coverage. Start at the poverty line. If you make more than that level you will pay some tax. Not much to start but it increases the more you make and that increase is progressive with NO upper limit.

Mr Griffith, my point was any tax a business pays, what ever form it takes, comes from the profits of the business. The profits come from the sales. And those sales are paid for by the end user. And the end user is always an individual.
No, my idea won't automaticly drop the price of goods. I never said it would. Competition is what controls the cost of goods.
The only thing my idea would do is make the people see what they are really paying in taxes. Nothing is hidden. It's all up front.
I want companies to make lots of money in the US. So much in fact they have problems figuring out how to invest it in other things. Why? Because moving money creates jobs. And our country needs jobs, not more government involvment and spending.
You have a FAANNNNtastic day!
