Lifting Our Economy Up Together
Posted 2 years ago
As corporations pay less in taxes each year, the middle class is left carrying the burden. With corporations finding loopholes and tax havens to escape from paying taxes, there is less money for our cities, counties, states, and country to spend on programs that benefit us all such as education, health care, or transportation.
I believe legislation should be proposed that will keep American companies here in America so they cannot keep their money off shores. We understand that some companies may want to move overseas if they feel our tax rate is too high, which is why the proposed legislation will prevent this. It is a great moral and ethical dilemma to have a corporation move over seas because they would rather pay their workers less and pay less in taxes than contribute to the country that gave them the tools to succeed.
