Too long didn’t watch? That’s unfortunate, because it was humorous. [bear with me on this analysis]
But basically its this
Everyone hates greedy unions
Consensus among some right wing pundits that we need to lower the corportate tax rate in leu of these greedy unions.
Companies like General Electric don’t pay ANY taxes, in fact that got additional money from the government.
question: how do you lower the tax rate from… nothing?
Here’s why this video upsets me. Every 3 months there’s a new political issue that pits middle class Americans against poor Americans. Middle class Americans get their taxes raised because the poor need things like healthcare, jobs, planned parenthood, PBS. The media then proceeds to encourage a class war (especially during the healthcare debate.)
But NO ONE stops to notice that while middle class Americans are getting taxed more then ever, the highest 10% of Americans are becoming richer and richer. The wealth disparity in the country is disgusting and real people are suffering, while we’re cutting valuable things from our budget that can be covered by simply reversing the Bush era tax cuts that the republicans fought for (while letting unemployment benefits expire.)
Seriously, where is the mother fucking revolution already?
Oh wait, because half a dozen CORPORATIONS owns the mainstream media, including General Electric that owns NBC universal… we’re not likely to hear about this…
i hope my angry musings educated SOMEONE…
